This Viral Travel Advice Is Really Not A Great Idea, Experts Say
A viral travel advice has recently caught the attention of many travelers, but it has also triggered controversy among experts who are advising against following it.
The viral travel advice recommends packing an empty water bottle through airport security and then filling it up at a bathroom sink to avoid buying expensive drinks inside the airport.
Experts warn that this practice can pose health risks as airport bathroom sinks may not be as clean as we expect them to be. In fact, according to studies, airport bathroom sinks are among the dirtiest surfaces in airports.
Instead of risking your health and safety by filling up your water bottle at airport bathroom sinks, experts recommend bringing your own refillable water bottle from home and filling it up before going to the airport. Alternatively, you can purchase a reusable water bottle at the airport and fill it up at the water fountains provided.
While the viral travel advice of filling up your water bottle at an airport bathroom sink may seem like a good idea to save money, it is not worth compromising your health and safety. Follow the advice of experts and bring your own refillable water bottle or purchase a reusable one at the airport to stay hydrated while traveling.
