-Always check for bedbugs by looking under the sheets. No one wants to think about it, but ignoring the problem doesn’t make it go away—and even nice hotels are susceptible!
If you don’t see the bug itself, watch out for blood spots on the sheets.
You can avoid bringing them home by upgrading to a hard shell suitcase (they nest in fabrics) and washing your clothes as soon as you walk in the door.
-Avoid a stinky suitcase.
Have a bottle of Smelly Shoe Spray? Give the inside of your luggage a spritz so the dirty clothes you bring home aren’t too far gone.
-Enjoy a hotel-sized water heater. Steam your sinuses, warm your muscles, or just de-stress.
-And while it’s a vacation… most hotels have places for you to exercise (and even pools!). Make it something relaxing and fun, instead of a chore.
Staying With Friends Or Family?
Bring the gift of health. No one wants Typhoid Mary blowing through their home.
-Strengthen your immune system beforehand (try colloidal silver!) and bring some with you for your stay.
-And continue supporting your health by eating well (cook/buy your hosts something nutritious!), sleeping enough (they’ll appreciate a quiet nighttime!) and exercising (something to do so you’re not parked on the couch all day!).
Make Travelling With Pets Easier
For yourself if you’re in a hotel, but especially for your host if you’re not—use an occasional spritz of Smelly Shoe Spray to keep pet beds, kennels, etc. from smelling (think your pet doesn’t stink? Travel is stressful for pets, too, and there’s a good chance their diet will be a little different, causing smell issues and possibly accidents).
Talk to your vet about ways to support your pet’s digestion—veggies, probiotics, and more might help keep the stress of travel from causing a runny mess. Your vet will help you figure out the best bet based on their existing diet.
Leaving Fluffy at home? A little colloidal silver will support their immune system, either from the stress of change, or the company of being kenneled.
