Think MRSA. I'd rather stick with the ones for which I have some resistance.
I also think being too clean lowers your resistance.We have friends who live in what we call an autoclavethey are always geting sick.The one thing that really grosses me though is puplic telephones I so glad cell phones are here.The one outside of stores are always greasy and worse they smell like cheap cologne.The ones in the hotel/motel rooms are also overlooked.

besides charlie, i'm probably the 2nd biggest proponent of "healthy dirt" here. that is not to say that you should take chances getting others sick. but there's a point where being clean is unhealthy.

that said, you really don't want to bring a black light into a hotel room.

just be sure to pull off the beadspread as soon as you enter the room. they don't get laundered/cleaned as often as other things in the room.

and never ever get ice from a machine that has the ice exposed. only get ice from a machine that dispenses it directly into the bucket.

Stay in a public hospital for long enough and you will think a hotel a proponent of hygiene!

The ShopRite I go to, has a container of wipes near the door and paper towels for customers to use , wipe off the cart handles and what not before going in.
