Germ-Free Remote Control Coming to a Hotel Near You

This blog post was updated on October 11, 2018.

Your next hotel stay might be a little less germ-free.  No, there’s still no guarantee that your bedspread has been washed thoroughly, but the room’s remote control may soon be completely germ-free.


That’s because as a part of DIRECTV’s new “Residential Hotel Experience,” they’ll be introducing a germ-resistant clicker in rooms across the country.


The special remotes will be coated in a germ-resistant finish that will repel 99% of the germs that can make you sick. Officials say the remote will debut in select hotels beginning in August.
