Whenever we stay at a hotel, we always pull back the bedcovers REALLY FAST. If we don’t see any creepy-crawlies running, we assume the bed is clean. Now the scare-mongers at Adirondack Towels and Scrubs have put a new fear in our heart as they try to promote their “SterilMattress Mattress Cleaning System.” Here’s the opening from their press release: “Hotel mattress [sic] are a bounty of shed human skin cells and allergens including dust mite feces, pollen, spores, fungi, mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses. These organisms and pathogens thrive in the micro-habitat of a mattress. All of them can seriously affect hotel guests and employees.” (Oh, ya think so, Hazel?) So Adirondack has teamed with Texas company SterilMattress to push the aforementioned system. It includes a powerful vacuum, portable light wand, special spray and more. Details are at their Web site, but here’s the bottom line: The system goes for $1,395! Somehow, we can sooner see hotels just putting fresh sheets atop the bed and hoping for the best.
