20. Don’t forget to double-check any appliances and the ice bucket.
There are often regular features in a hotel room that many people don’t check out too closely when making sure the items are clean. One of these items is the coffee machine. Many tiny areas are crucial on a coffee machine, from pouring the water into the container to the pot or cup used. Take your time to carefully inspect this device under good lighting so you can clearly see the corners. If it isn’t clean, you can request a different one from the front desk.
Other areas are inside and around the fridge and microwave. You also want to make sure that you check the phone and underneath as well. It is often an area that isn’t touched much due to cell phones, so it can quickly collect dust. Finally, don’t forget about the ice bucket. While there are usually bags that you can place in the bucket that will help make sure you don’t get any nasty crumbs or dust from the inside of the bucket, it’s always a good idea to double-check the item for cleanliness.
