Kat Kamalani, who shares tips from her travel experience on TikTok@katkamalani, has advice on everything from hotel breakfasts to hygiene.

She advises that you never use glasses that are provided because it is impossible to know how clean they have been.

She stated that the first tip she gave was to not use glass cups if there isnt a dishwasher in your hotel room.

The reason being, you dont know if they were cleaned properly or just rinsed out from the last people who stayed in that hotel room.

A fellow TikTok user who claimed to be a former hotel cleaner confirmed that glasses dont get cleaned properly, commenting: As a former cleaning staff at a hotel I would tell you that they ask us to wash the glasses with the same sponge we use to wash the toilet, so yeah

Another added: I have over 25 years of working in the hospitality industry and I agree with you. Most housekeepers do not sanitise or clean the glasses among others.

Similarly dubious, according to Kat, are TV remotes because its an item that housekeeping is unlikely to clean.

To protect the remote, she always uses a clear plastic bag.

Kat also has some suggestions for hotel guests that dont include breakfast. She recommends they use the hot water from the coffee maker to make instant porridge.

TikTok users also noted that the coffee machine has not been washed.

You should avoid using hotel rooms with upholstered chairs. They could harbor bacteria and dirt.

Even if the chairs appear clean, there could be bed bugs, viruses or mould hiding in them.

Experts say that these chairs are difficult to clean. Unlike towels and bedding that are easily washed at high heat, they can harbor germs that can cause illness.

The time it takes to clean a room is often too short for cleaning staff, so the chair can be overlooked.

Dr. Nidhi Ghildayal, PhD, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health,told Readers Digestwhy this is.

He said: Often, stains on chairs are dabbed and rubbed until they are removed, but other germs that are not noticeable to the eye remain.
