A TRAVEL expert has revealed the shocking reason you should never use the hotel iron in your room.
influencers @safaratravels publishes videos with advice and insights into chic hotels around the world.
In the clip, titled “Travel Mistakes You Probably Didn’t Know, Part 2,” Safara admits that while it’s “beautiful and practical,” guests should avoid the iron provided in their room like the plague.
“Don’t use the iron provided in the hotel room, especially if you’re wearing nice clothes with it,” she warns.
“Hotel irons aren’t cleaned between room changes, so you might leave something really bad behind from the previous guest.”
Content creator Safara also slammed a bizarre new trend that sees visitors attempting to prepare foods like pizza and quesadillas on set.
Rather, Safara proposed an alternative to the oxidized additive, as well as a proven way to test iron cleanliness.
She continued, “Instead, consider steaming your clothes while you shower.”
“Or if you really need the iron, try a wet towel before using it on your clothes.”
Most notably, users who flocked to the comments were horrified at the use of an iron as a cooking utensil.
“Iron Mac and Cheese?!” asked one?
Another agreed: “There’s a trend of cooking food on the iron???”
