An NBC4 I-Team investigation uncovered big name hotels that did not change some items like the sheets and towels in between guests.
We used an invisible, washable spray to mark our NBC4 logo on items that should be changed between guests--then checked back in a second day, under a different name, to see if they logo was still there.
