A flight attendant has told people the little-known things they "have to" try when they check into a hotel room.
Kat Kamalani @katkamalani shared the three "top hacks" for staying at a hotel in her TikTok video and warned the room is not always sanitary.
She says: "You have to try these tips the next time you stay at a hotel, from a flight attendant.
"Starting out, if you don't have a dishwasher in your hotel room I would never use the glass cups.
"The reason being, you don't know if they were cleaned properly or just rinsed out from the last people who stayed in that hotel room."
Kat then holds up a glass wrapped in single-use plastic and says the "fully sealed" glass is safe to drink from.
The air hostess then recommends using instant "oatmeal" (called porridge in the UK) if your hotel doesn't offer breakfast and making it using boiled water from your room.
Kat then warns about using the TV remote and claims it is unsanitary, which she solves by wrapping it up in a plastic bag.
The flight attendant (who also has an Instagram account) uploaded the video in August and it has been watched more than 400,000 times, with many viewers agreeing with her clean-freak stance.
One user commented: "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…"
A second person said: "I have over 25 years of working in the hospitality industry and I agree with you.
"Most housekeepers do not sanitise nor clean the glasses among others."
A couple of users were more sarcastic with their responses, with one commenting: "Just stay at home. Don't go to hotel. Save your troubles."
"So you don't know how to wash a cup using water and soap yourself?" said another.
