Can you guess which things housekeepers DON’T recommend using in hotels?
Staying at a hotel is always exciting, especially when you’re on a much-needed vacation. Everything is at your fingertips, and there’s no cooking and cleaning you have to worry about.
Your biggest concern will be whether you should hit the gym, swim in the indoor pool, or check out the exclusive beach club. But a fundamental aspect of a comfortable stay is, obviously, your hotel room.
We’re lucky enough to have hotel housekeepers there to ensure everything is neat and tidy. But these employees also know a hotel’s dirty secrets… literally!
