Germs And Bacteria Are Everywhere
When you’re home, you know the last time bedspreads were changed and how often surfaces are disinfected. But how can you tell what’s germ-free when you’re traveling? Scientific American reports that a shocking 81% of surfaces in hotel rooms have at least a trace of fecal matter on them. You can’t trust anything you touch. Other studies have found similar results throughout the transportation system. Planes, buses, ride-sharing vehicles, restaurants and every kind of waiting area are infested with germs. Carrying a travel-pack of disinfecting wipes doesn’t mean you’re paranoid—it’s the only way to protect yourself.
