Next time you’re hankering for a cuppa in your hotel room, maybe order in some room service instead …
The Internet is still reeling after an unidentified woman openly admitted to boiling her period-stained underwear in a hotel room kettle.
A screenshot of the now-viral post, describes the act as a “quick, fast and hygienic,” and pictures the woman’s dirty knickers stewing in the communal kettle.
“Staying in a hotel, that time of the month comes out of the blue. Forgot to pack knickers so came up with a good way to quickly wash them. The hotel kettle! Quick, fast and hygienic.”
The stomach-churning practice is more widespread than you’d think, too — experts have dubbed the act “unbelievably irresponsible” due to a toxin that can develop as a result of residual bacteria being introduced.
Twitter was understandably mortified and baffled by this very public revelation.
“Why wouldn’t you just rinse them in the sink like a NORMAL F—ING PERSON? … Also, I’m never making tea in a hotel again!” wrote one stunned commentator.
“Apart from the fact that this is thoroughly revolting, surely everyone knows you use cold water to rinse out blood?” another commentator chimed in.
The thread also resurrected another utterly disturbing rumour — that apparently people wee in hotel kettles.
The news comes just a week after another traveller made the horrifying discovery of mould in their hotel coffee machine.
