A HOTEL expert has revealed why you should always wear the free slippers provided in the room – and it's pretty gross.
Hotel expert Jacob Tomsky explained that you should never walk barefoot in your room, no matter how clean the floor looks.
Jacob, who worked in the hotel business for ten years, told Sun Online Travel: "The dirtiest part of a hotel room is the carpets.
“Yes, they are vacuumed but they will almost never get a shampoo and a deep clean as there are constantly people staying in the rooms."
He added: “Carpets need properly cleaning more than they ever are.
“There’s a high chance of there fragments of smashed glass from where people have broken glasses too.”
Don't worry about leaving the slippers behind either – you can take them home with you, as they can't be reused.
They are also particularly useful on the flight home, so you don’t end up walking around the plane cabin in your socks.
