I've never used a hotel robe. I'm not a huge germ-a-phobic person. Well, maybe a tad. I do bring Lysol wipes and clean the phones, remote and toilet seat. I assume they bleach the robes. However, you cannot count on guests to do the right thing. Are they laundered even if they look as if they haven't been touched? I would love to save the room in my suitcase that my fluffy robe occupies. Am I being too paranoid? Do you use the robes?
