This Hotel Curtain Hack Inspired People to Reveal Their Best Hotel Tips
Staying in hotels can often go one of two ways: It can be a dreamy escape from squashed bedrooms, with fluffy comforters and well-stocked mini bars. That, or it can be a nightmarish experience, featuring weak water pressure and towels that feel semi-crusty. Then again, a lot of the time, hotel stays are pretty alright.
To compensate for some of the lesser attributes of hotel stays, like pesky curtains that don't stay closed, Twitter user and venture capitalist, Rick Klau, shared a hack that he himself admitted to learning on Twitter. The helpful post quickly transformed into a super-handy -- and entertaining -- thread of replies.
Following Klau's genius photo, other Twitter users poured in to share their most helpful hotel hacks -- ensuring that others can make the best of their stays under a corporation's roof.
My hotel hack is if you ever need an extra phone charger ask the front desk if they found one. They have a box full.— Rabbit (@vinylrabbit) October 4, 2019
Brilliant.— Alistair Croll (@acroll) October 4, 2019
My favorite hotel hack: Your ironing board is an adjustable height desk. Since the chairs are never the right height, use the ironing board for long hotel work.
Best hotel hack: instead of touching the disgusting tv remote, wrap it in the shower cap!— la espooky 👻🎃 (@melmor86) October 4, 2019
Soak a towel. Wring it a little tight so it’s not pouring off the towel. Hang it over the ironing board in front of the vent/heater. No more dry hotel room.— Aaron B 🇨🇦🏴 (@steamin) October 4, 2019
My hotel hack is hang your shirt up on a coat hanger on the back of the shower door. The steam will help the creases fall out from it being in your case.— Chris Spencer (@DrCSpencer) October 4, 2019
Some women jumped in to point out that this hack has existed long before Klau's game-changing thread, sharing images of the hair clasps that were formerly used to hold curtains shut.
Regardless of who invented this genius hack, you have to admit that the replies that followed will ensure you have a happy and hygienic stay during your next stay -- whether it's at a luxurious five star hotel or a crappy motel. Oh, and always remember to tip your hotel housekeeper generously.
