A Chinese hotel may help the industry avoid such problems by using a high-tech system that reveals when bed linen was last washed. The Wuhan will implant microchips into bed sheets, towels and quilts. Incoming guests’ cell phones will reveal the date of last washing. When that happens in the US and other world vacation area, maybe there will be less scratching.
