In about 4 weeks we are traveling to a vacation rental. I have never stayed anywhere but a hotel. I had some concerns but looking at the website for the rentals and the pictures everything looks very clean. However I did find out (very crafty on my part) that they do not have any kind of slip cover or mattress cover on the mattress but they do have slip covers on the pillows. Kind of weird and makes me kind of grossed out. I realize many people stay in bed and breakfast and similar places and probably do not know if they have mattress protectors or not. Would this gross you out. What would you do? It is a pricey rental and all the reviewers keep talking about how clean it is.
There are washing machines and dryers on site, so I am planning on stripping the beds bringing a mattress cover and then washing the sheets and remaking the bed. I am also going to go over the pillow slipcovers with antibacterial wipes and then put new cases on them. Kind of a lot of work but I am a germophobe. I just don't get why they would not put something on the mattress. I mean if I strip the beds and see badly stained mattresses, I am going to freak. I am hoping the mattresses are cleaned but I don't know what else to do at this point. Any ideas? What would you do?
