No matter how nice your hotel room may look, germs may still be lurking on some unexpected places. We'd hate to see your getaway vacation derailed by catching a cold, so we've gathered some hotel items that should be top on your list of avoiding (or at the very least cleaning!) More after the jump!

In no particular order, here are some of the germiest items in a hotel room:

  • remote control
  • door handles
  • light switches
  • phone
  • alarm clock
  • pens
  • faucet handles
  • bed spread
  • carpet

Don't feel like you can't use any of these items, just use caution and common sense. Clean the remote control, phone, clock radio, door handles, and light switches. Don't walk around barefoot: throw on a pair of slippers. And don't use the bedspread if you can help it.

Want to have a cleaner hotel room but don't want to douse it with chemicals? Think about taking along some all natural cleaning products.
