Owning a coffee machine in your hotel room can seem like a privilege when you’re spending a night away from home.
But a hotel employee has revealed a disgusting reason you should never use it.
Tiktok users @hotel_hacks_ shared a video explaining that the coffee machine was not cleaned by the staff.
So if someone has used the coffee machine before you, it won’t be emptied or wiped.
That means standing water can get trapped in which mold, fungus and bacteria can grow – a lesson a hotelier has learned the hard way.
The Tiktok user said: “No, and I repeat, don’t use the coffee machine in your room.
“Now you’re probably thinking ‘huh? The coffee machine runs out of everything? A free thing in the hotel?’
“All the water used and built up in the coffee machine leads to moisture, which is full of bacteria, mold and germs – it’s disgusting.
“And if you think that’s bad The hotel does not change the bed sheets and towels etc after each guest, what do you think they do with the coffee machine?
“If you use these coffee machines in a hotel room, I don’t know what to tell you.
“Here’s what you should do – always order from room service as they are constantly making new pots of coffee and tea.
“Coffee in the room is always of the best quality and most hotels like 4-5 star will have free coffee service in the morning.”
The video has been viewed more than 20,000 times, and viewers are disgusted to learn that they may have been using dirty machines.
In the comments, someone shared a tip for using a hotel coffee machine, writing: “On the rare occasions I use them, I only run water through the machine three or four times before using it. .”
It’s not just the coffee machine that can pick up germs from previous guests in your hotel room.
