I should know better, but I got lazy. I had a guest leave this morning who left the place nice and clean. They messaged that they took the trash out and stripped the bed when they left. So I went up, gathered up the linens and towels, cleaned the bathroom, started the wash, and left a gushing review.
SO, when I came up later to make the bed, when I moved the pillows to make the bed, there was a blood spot on my mattress cover. Thank God that protected my new mattress! And thank God I put oxyclean in each load of guest laundry…if I didn’t know about it I wouldn’t see the stain on the fitted sheet.
So please, always check your linens before putting them in the wash. And save reviewing until you’re done setting up for the next guest since you never know what you’ll find until the end. I wouldn’t have mentioned any of this in the public review, but I wouldn’t have rated them 5 starts for cleanliness and I would have mentioned in the private review to please notify me of any stains so that I can treat them properly.
