Paper or Gun ?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Love it but cant help but imagine how filthy the thing is.
When you get to a new hotel room, just grab a flashlight and give the business end a thorough examination, chip of any crusty bits with a knife or a spoon and then give it a good soak in some strong bleach solution while you have a nice cup of tea or coffee (clean that spoon though). Rinse and repeat, and it's showtime!

Sure, because I carry bleach with me when I travel. I will also throw in the remote for a good clean.

Actually, I do travel with disinfectant wipes, and often clean up things like that with them. Otherwise, I will wash my hands thoroughly after doing my business. haha.

I dread having no bum-gun whenever I return to the 'civilised' world each year.

My mate, an traveller to Asia for many years, got one installed in his London flat. He bought it from Amazon. The plumber who fitted it was so impressed by it he bought one himself for his own house.

If I ever return to the UK full time it's going to be the first home improvement I make.
I considered taking a few home with me, the install is super easy, don't need a plumber. Kind of handy to spray down the toilet a bit too.

Also worry about the bedspread, the kettle (Chinese like to wash their underwear in them), light switches, avoid glasses in the bathroom like the plague or stay at home :-)

Restaurants are the biggest danger when traveling. I earned 9 days of dysentery from eating a piece of food that fell off my plate and on to the table in an apparently clean restaurant in Hong Kong. I know better but I thought HK is clean compared to here, wrong. The bum gun came in handy during that stinky time.

Germs are a weird thing though. Its about our microbiome. Exposure to some 'dirt' builds up our immune system and makes us stronger. I don't know if I am lucky, or if I just have an iron gut, but I don't get sick much and have grazed pretty freely.

Eww to cleaning underwear in a kettle. But a good boil will kill everything, even if its a bit gritty at the bottom. I also know that kettles are great for boiling eggs and making oatmeal. haha

I also worry about the button or lever that you flush the toilet with, also the door handles, especially the one in the toilet - so many don't wash their hands.

Always thoroughly clean any glass, cup, cutlery before use regardless. Get a nice single malt and have a shot or two after using any utensils. :good:

Hey it's all about the adventure, never know what they got. Your very own Russian Roulette.

I always use it, if it's available. It kills me when I have to go someplace that doesn't have it. Like back state side.
