I've been traveling more lately for work (here at AAFA) and while I believe I have air travel down (I wear a mask and wipe my seat/trays off), I still struggle with staying in hotels. I wake up with asthma attacks and then I'm tired and run down for meetings the next day.
Here's what I've tried:
- Requesting that my room not have feathered pillows/products
- I pack and use my own pillows
- Request that I get a pet-free room
- Always get non-smoking
- Request that they not use an ionizing air cleaner in my room (there is a particular hotel that does this and the moment I walk in, I'm blasted with the ozone smell – smells like swimming pool- and it triggers asthma)
What do you do and does it work for you? I'm about this close:
to traveling with my own air cleaner, mattress cover and blankets.
