I’m a hotel cleaner and here are five shocking items we don't clean | The Sun

IT seems safe to assume that hotel rooms will have been given a thorough cleaning before guests are allowed to check into them.

But a hotel cleaner has revealed that there are at least five items that she has never been asked to scrub while at work.

Elliana Madrid shared a video on Tiktok of her at work for her job as a cleaner in a hotel room.

In the video she went around the room pointing out items she's never been told to clean.

The five items were the coffee machine, mattress topper, comforter, throw and pillows.

The video has been watched nearly 600,000 times and received more than 570 comments from people disgusted at the lack of cleaning.

Someone wrote: "I didn't want to know this."

Another put: "Sounds like a great way to spread scabies."

Several other hotel cleaners also commented on the video confirming what Elliana said.

One wrote: "I've cleaned five star hotels and can confirm this is true. Also don't ever EVER use the glass cups. They get wiped off but never cleaned the way they should."

Another commented: "I used to work in housekeeping and you don't wash any blankets – just sheets and towels.

"Only time they get washed is if something visible is on it."

A third added: "A a former housekeeper, I can confirm this for myself."
