Cleaning Your Hotel Room During COVID19 - Checklist for Staying Safe While Traveling

We traveled to a HOTEL for the FIRST time since the COVID19 pandemic began. We decided to step SLOWLY back into the travel world by traveling to a location close to home. Yes, packed our bags and chose one of our favorite local hotels, our local Holiday Inn.

To prepare for this trip, we packed a gallon-sized bag of cleaning materials, our clothes, and lots of courage. :) 

If you would have checked our bags before we left for the adventure, you would have seen gloves for the check-in process, our food and cooking appliances for in-room dining, and pillow slips!

When we checked-in, we experienced contactless check in. It was perfect (especially for anxiety-filled me). They had special cups for sanitized and not-yet-sanitized pens, which was amazing. However, I brought my own! :) 

When we received our keys, we drove to the room and discovered a neat adhesive sticker over the sill of our door. It stated that the door was sanitized. Well done Holiday Inn, well done!

As soon as we checked in, we broke out the Clorox wipes and spray and then we quickly started our sanitizing work! From door handles and faucets to spraying the sheets and placing the remote in the ice bag, we finished the process in under 10 minutes. (It will be MUCH quicker next time, because NOW we have a process).

*This process is a ramped up edition of our classic hotel cleaning process, but this is our COVID19 edition.

Here's a quick checklist for you to sanitize your hotel room.

Remember to put on your gloves!

Step 1 - Clean the Door Handles and Light Switches

Step 2 - Spray the Couch, Tables, and the Dining Chairs

Step 3 - Wipe the Counters and the Faucets

Step 4 - Spray the Beds and Bed Linens

Step 5 - Place the Pillow Slips on the Bed

Step 6 - Wipe the Refrigerator Handles and Shelves

Step 7 - Spray the Thermostat

Oh, but wait, you probably want to know what to pack for sanitizing your hotel room. You can definitely sanitize, Dollar Store style or you can purchase the item son Amazon! 

Item 4 - Gloves

What else would you add to the list?

We felt MUCH better after cleaning everything and the hotel room tends to smell MORE like home. :) Yay! It was perfect! Do you have any questions for us? We will be happy to help!
