So, after reading about how germaphobic many people are I thought I would get a UV light to check out the 6 hotels I will be staying at on my next trip. They're not expensive. A nice compact one for travel cost me $10 at Walmart. It works well. The thing is, I'm not a germaphobe. In fact, the only thing I'm adverse to in the hotel room is the bedspread...which goes on the floor as soon as I let go of my luggage...and the glassware in the room...which I wash with soap in the bathroom sink right after dropping the bedspread on the floor. Other than that, I really never think twice about germs in the room, after all, isn't that what our immune systems are for? I tried the UV light out at my home. Not bad except for the 15 year old bedroom carpeting...ugh. How does carpet get all these spots on it? I know we haven't been hanging from the ceilings during our romps around the room...though that could be fun. I now have to take my findings in my hotel rooms in LV with a grain of salt. After all, if my carpet at home could look like this I think I have to give the hotel some leeway, also.
