Source: 7 Hotel Hacks You've Never Heard Of
There seems to be a spike in hotel dwellers in the areas hit by Hurricane Sandy. It's hard to live out of a hotel room, but here are some tips that may make living conditions more bearable.
- Make grilled cheese with an iron. If you're looking to heat up your cheese sandwich, wrap it in aluminum foil, the press an iron on top of it. Use the highest heat setting, then press each side for 30 seconds and check to see if the sandwich has been toasted.
- Sterilize items with a microwave. Other than the obvious use for a microwave - heating up food or cooking - you can use the microwave to sterilize items like sponges, toothbrushes, dish clothes, and cutting boards. Remember to dampen them with water, lemon juice, or vinegar first before nuking. Also, don't microwave the items for more than a minute.
- Use towels to humidify and cool the air. Hang a wet towel to dry in your hotel room, and you'll have an instant humidifier.
