Window Seat 11 Sep 17

SOME forms of travel advice should never need to be made, but a New Zealand academic has taken the stomach-turning step of warning travellers not to boil their undies in hotel kettles.

The Independent reports the warning was prompted by discussion on social media which suggested the cleaning practice might in fact take place.

University of Auckland senior lecturer Dr Heather Hendrickson said some bacteria were resistant to high temperatures and could damage health.

“Who knows how long that water… sits around in the kettle before someone else uses it?” Hendrickson said, as Travel Daily staff spat their tea.
