Packing a small night lite is a GREAT idea. Away from home, surroundings, furniture and room layout is unfamiliar and more so in the dark. With elevated concern about H1N1, we went shopping for wet wipes at the 99 cents store recently to keep in the rental car and our carry-on luggage. While there, I spotted a night light. A second trip is on my honey-do list. Thanks for the travel tip.
I always carry Clorox disinfecting wipes in my luggage. First thing I do upon arrival in my room is to clean it!
When do you think the last time that remote control was cleaned? Or the door knobs and light switches? Sink, toilet, and shower handles???
And, I always bring a pair of cheap rubber flip flops to wear in the shower... really don't want athelete's foot. They also double as my slippers and can be worn to the pool, etc.
Here's a fresh idea from Marriott. A bedside lamp that doubles as a night lamp. We just spent the weekend at the newly refurbished Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa in Groton, Connecticut. Both bedside lamps have a second switch (shown below) that turns on a low voltage lamp.
Above: Bedside lamps feature an acrylic translucent base. The front switch turns on the lamp as shown above.
Above: Base of the lamp has a switch in front and on the side. The switch on the side turns on a low voltage lamp in the acrylic base below the lampshade.
