I work in a hotel and that’s why you should never use the plates in the room
Using the dishes in your hotel room is a common practice for people who spend the night away.
But a hotel employee revealed why you should never use a plate in your room.
Reddit user RedRose_812, who works at a boutique hotel, said his hotel has rooms with kitchenettes, including plates, cutlery and pots and pans.
They revealed that the cleanliness of many guests was below the standard they expected.
They wrote: “It was quite common for people to use the dishes in the kitchenette and then just put them back in the cupboard without washing them.
“For reference, the hotel provided crockery (two to three plates and bowls, etc.), silverware, and a few pots, pans, and utensils.
“And each room also has a mini dishwasher and the hotel provided both detergent for this and regular dish soap for washing dishes by hand.
“I really didn’t mind finding dishes in the sink. I could put them in the dishwasher and that was okay.
“But putting away crisp, dirty dishes like you haven’t used them?” Who do this ? RAW.”
One person commented on the post and said it made them “shiver” to think about what these people were going through at home.
They wrote: “We wonder about the habits of these people in general.
“For example, are there families who literally don’t do the dishes? Is it just years of crispy food? I shudder at the thought.
If you really need to use them, be sure to give them a good scrub first.
You should too never use the glasses in the room without washing them, according to the staff.
User WitcherofWallStreet previously warned: “Never trust glass in rooms. [Cleaning staff] are so stretched in time that they’ll clean the glasses with the same rags they clean the bathroom, after all their goal is to make the room clean.
A group of hotel employees shared some of the disgusting things they found hidden under the sheets – from mysterious stains on the bed to grimy garbage bags.
And other hotel staff revealed the guests they hate the most – and you could be one of them.
