Travel Health Tip

 Hotel-Room Health Tips

When my husband and I absolutely must stay in a hotel, we pack lightweight slippers to avoid stepping on the floors. We also protect ourselves from guest-bed pillows by putting a thin, 13-gallon plastic bag over the pillow, and placing our own pillow cases over that impermeable layer. With that procedure, we lessen our chances of catching airborne, breathable pathogens.

Don't drink from hotel room glasses until you wash them yourself, no matter how clean they appear.

Fast-Boiling Electric Kettle with Auto-Off Feature for Safety

This elegant tea-kettle boils water faster and safer than a microwave, and shuts itself off when it reaches a full, bubbling boil. The kettle's interior is stainless steel. Set on its round platform, press down white button, which will pop back up when finished boiling. Lift the cordless kettle off of its base to pour wonderfully hot water for tea, instant coffee, or quick cleaning projects. I've had this kettle for ten months, and have used it several times each day.
