Do You Steal Hotel Shampoo?

Posted by Brette in Travel

hotel shampooAdmit it. You’ve stuck hotel shampoo, conditioner, and lotion into your suitcase as you were packing (and maybe a shower cap and sewing kit too). I’m guilty as charged on this one too! It’s not exactly stealing – I paid for the room, right? But then I bring it home and stuff it to the back of the bathroom closet and it never sees the light of day again.

My planned usage for these goodies is always:

a) It’s nice to have some back up products in case I suddenly run out, and

b) They are convenient for packing if you want to bring toiletries on a trip.

Honestly though, they mostly just sit in the back of the closet, taking up space. I’ve hit on a great solution for these.

Donate them to a women’s shelter, homeless shelter, or veteran’s hospital. Toiletries are desperately needed items at these places and will be welcome donations.  Note that domestic violence women’s shelters do not advertise their locations, so you can’t just drop off your donations at the shelter. Check their web site for an administrative site where donations will be accepted.
