    The same could be asked for a couple other threads around here. I thought toilet water would be an interesting way of starting conversation and as well as let others know the hidden dangers.

    Even before you flush you have to worry about the water splashing up at you...

    Also, about hotels.. I've worked at 4; all different classes and price ranges. And I definitely agree that you should NEVER sleep underneath or on top of the comforter. I've never worked in the housekeeping department, but I think they are washed once a every few months at most. (Water/detergent saving measure) Unless there is an obvious stain, then it will be washed right away. That's why most hotels have dark colored comforters, to hide the stains.

    I worked at a hotel. I've supervised the housekeeping staff. I pull the bed covers down to the white sheets ( I know they are washed daily in hot water detergent and bleach) I won't even touch the top bedspread. I will never ever take a bath in a hotel room. I will never EVER use the icebucket without the little plastic bag- I never use the bag thats in the bucket I always ask for a new bag. On more than one occasion I have checked into a hotel and called housekeeping to come and do the bathroom again... while I watched.

    Well first of all I have to add in that last week when I went clubbing I got sick in the bathroom stall and sat at the toilet for about thirty mins flushing like 12 times. EWWWWW

    Second, I have always heard that if you are drunk and puking in the toilet, it will sober you up to splash the toilet water on your face because it is super cold. I don't care how drunk I am, I will not be trying that!

    And thirdly, I have to leave my toilet seat open because my cats drink out of it. I think I need to train them to open and close the lid because now that is just nasty!

    I never was a sanitary freak, but after reading that I just might be now :mad:

    I've never gotten drunk before so I wouldn't know the feeling lol.

    I feel sorry for your cats lol. What if the toilet was clogged and it blew in their faces?

    Thanks to Duxxy and Terena for the hotel tips. I don't think I'll ever see going on vacation the same way again lol.

    seriously, if I am drunk, and I splash toilet water on my face, i will definately be awake.... thinking.... 'did I just splash the water from the toilet on my face' It might even get me to stop drinking.

    Okay, I worked in hotels for several years and here's my contribution. You are right about not sleeping under the main bed spread but also don't sleep under the blanket. The only thing that hotels change between guests is the sheets. The bedspreads and blankets are only washed about once a month (if that).

    Oh, and my first job was at an interstate gas station. I had to clean the bathrooms. nuff said

    Good idea. Hotels are either cheap and hold back on cleaning or can't afford letting the guests stay disease free.

    My friend today had jokingly told me he had caught AIDS by standing on the toilet in the men's restroom stall.

    Some gas stations I've been down in San Jose, CA for the summer were plain nasty. There would be dark spots all over the seats and water smelling of more than I'd like to have known.
