What Happens to All Those Hotel Soap Bars?

* Watching You In the Loo

In 1994, on his second trip to the United States, Derreck Kayongo was staying at a Philadelphia hotel when he noticed that every bar of soap he’d use in the morning was replaced magically with a new one by the time he returned that evening. “I asked the concierge what they did with the partially used bars, and he actually told me they threw them away!”

When I traveled a lot and spent weeks on end in hotels managing projects, I would collect all the little soaps, shampoo, conditioner, lotion bottles and save tehm up. My daughter used to get a big kick out of them. Now that she's spending the summer in Europe, where you are charged for thois things, she is packing about thirty or so bottles of shampoo and loading lotion and soap bars in her bags. She expects to give some out as gifts in the student groups she will meet up with from around the world and use them as trade items.

Mebbe I don't stay in the right places. The quality of the stuff I've seen in most rooms would go a long way towards convincing the 3rd world recipients we don't live so much better than they do, IMO. Very different on a cruise ship = you get the good stuff. But hotels, it seems you get soap and shampoo that won't even lather decently.

I don't stay at 5 star places, but at a buck eighty a night, I expect to be treated like a human fucking being at the very least, which means nice toiletries.

Gee, I just bring my own. My delicate skin and hair and all that junk demand the best, and I don't think I can expect them to provide what I want - or even know what that is. </humor>

I worked at a hotel for 7 years. I am still friends with the manager. As it turns out- she does this! A church group comes and gets it for missions.

I also worked in group homes- and both there and tourism are fascinating to me.
