Jet2, Easyjet, TUI passengers are being advised by a flight attendant to inspect a common hotel room appliance before use and the reason is quite bizarre. As holidaymakers gear up for their summer vacations, flight attendant Barbara Bacilieri has issued a cautionary message to travellers from across the UK.

Barbara, addressing British holidaymakers, shared that her extensive experience staying in hotels due to her profession has taught her to be wary when it comes to using the kettle or coffee pot in hotel rooms. The cabin crew member, who boasts an impressive following of 475,000 on TikTok, stressed the importance of ensuring the kettle's cleanliness before use.

BirminghamLive reports she advised: "Always take a look inside the coffee pot. Before boiling water for making tea or coffee, think it through."

Barbara revealed: "It is said that some guests use the boiling jar for weird stuff, such as washing underwear, cooking sausages or even cleaning the menstrual cup! You weren't expecting this one, right? Just imagine how many other things guests do and we don't know."

Additionally, she recommended: "Before getting into bed, lift the sheets. Check for bugs or socks that other guests may have left behind. Some people think that everything that is in the room is free, or as they paid so expensive they have the right to take it.

"The batteries from the remote control or worse, the light bulbs from the lights. You wouldn't believe how many guests take the hotel pillows home. And how many people have hotel towels at home? A lot."

In her viral TikTok video, Bacilieri also humorously suggested checking the hotel room's safe, just in case "you're lucky and the previous guest forgot their millions."
