WATCH: Discover What's Hiding In Your Hotel Room

Sometimes, it pays to be blissfully unaware, but then again, some of you might actually like to know where random unidentified fluids and gunk have spilled in your hotel room.

Thankfully, YouTube star Grant Thompson was up to the task of shedding a literal light on what might be lurking around various hotel and motel rooms.

Thompson, whose videos run a wide range of interests and usually feature experiments and other entertaining fare, was on a trip with his wife. As he explains in the video, he wanted to pull back the figurative curtain on what might be hanging around in a typical hotel room.

Well, we never find out the what behind the substances – which is a blessing – but we do indeed see that it best not to ever touch the light switch and that we should probably stay clear of the walls.

With that we find ourselves curled up in a tiny corner of our respective room as we weep.

In all seriousness, the video never depicted anything all that horrendous. We aren’t exactly sure what we were expecting, but let’s say we are eternally grateful that Thompson didn’t shine the light on the sheets only to show off what was a previously invisible Jackson Pollock painting.

It seems most of the three rooms shown were fairly clean – although we have to continue to warn against ever handling the germ trap that are those remote controls.

Still, you definitely get a sense of where and what the staff cleans on a regular basis, which includes the linens and most visible portions of the bathroom. Walls and switches just get ignored, and that can lead to some pretty foul substances being left behind.

We aren’t brave enough to ever do this ourselves, but we are eager to hear what you might find in your hotel spelunking sessions.

Happy hunting.
