Stealing would imply I took something that was not meant for me to have, use, and that I had not already paid for. You definitely paid for those little soaps and shampoos, and they are definitely meant for you to use and take otherwise they would be in the mini bar for a charge or a price tag on them. Not only that, these items are typically from a brand deal with the hotel so the brands are being advertised to you. You take them with you, you like them, you may purchase the full sizes at a later date.20
It's a trope of the type of people who use hotels.
In reality it's shitty products that hotels use. I have ALWAYS brought my own toiletries to any hotel in the world.10
I THINK the hotel expects that! If you went to a hotel and found a partially used tube of toothpaste, would YOU use it?20
What Girls & Guys Said
It isn’t stealing. They want you to take them. They just throw them away. Plus it’s free advertising. If you see their shampoo bottle in your shower It might remind you to go back.53
I would not classify that as stealing because they purposely put it there for you to use. The hotels I’ve visited in Canada and Europe and Australia and America, give you a generous portion, but it’s only mean to last you 1-4 days and your hotel fees generously cover that amount.33
uh oh sry.. every time my mom back from long trip, i confused why there's many soap & shampoo bottles, toothbrush and even shower cap from her luggage, and she's answered with confident, she says "its free right? why even bother"
there one time my mom even steal the blanket from the plane😅 i was quite shocked and embarrassed, but luckily my mom didn't get caught, so i just shook my head front of her.
in the end, i followed the way but not all, i only took what i needed and it's shower cap lol.
but 1 thing i know why my mother is like that bcs she doesn't want to lose after paying for expensive lodging10
It's not stealing. The hotel expects people to take them. They don't refill them. It's extremely wasteful. It's good for guests to take what they don't use during their stay.
(Stealing towels and robes are separate, not the same.)40
They aren’t “stealing” those. The toiletries are included with the room. They are there to be used by the guest who is staying there.40
Steal? It’s apart of the Hotel fee and they place it in the room for use. If they don’t want it to be used freely I’m sure they’ll add a price card next to it with a lists of the prices.20
It is not stealing. They provide those toiletries for you to use and they are complementary. The housekeeping staff are not going to refill those bottles. They get thrown in the trash.20
I think that when you pay for the night, almost everything in the bedroom and bathroom, but mostly the hygiene items are for you, so if people take them, they're not stealing. that's only my take20
Those are complimentary gifts… be rude not to accept gifts 🤔50
I work at a hotel, and the toiletries are there for you to take. So in that case it’s not stealing. However, it would be stealing if you took the towels or bed linens, because those are washed and reused33
Maybe it's because it's for free. Or they take it to give to their friends and family just to say that they were in a hotel.20
Why would you want to use a half-used, mini bottle, left over from before you? Ick.
That aside I bring my own. I have weird soap allergies.20
It comes with the hotel room. It’s not like they’re gonna reuse them for the next person.30
They probably figure they are paying for what is in the room, so they are entitled. Except for the television.10
Because they're rare and usually higher quality than store bought stuff. They're like a small memento of your trip.10
It's technically not stealing. They get free shampoo and toothpaste because the hotel provides them30
Probably because they think they've paid for them when they booked the room.
I've never used any of the toiletries in hotel rooms I prefer to use my own, its one of my creature comforts when I trave. l10
Anything you open from a hotel bathroom will be thrown out anyway, so you're entitled to take the remains.10
It's all provided to people for free when you get a room
also, there might be a low fee to cover that stuff too20
Mostly because they're convenient travel size for the most part and hotel simply throw them out after you leave the room because they can't pass them on to the next customer unless it's a really cheap hotel.20
It is practically not stealing. My dad's friend is a hotel owner and when I asked him this that how do they manage when people take away the shampoo bottles and those stuff then he said that it is for them only. No matter if people take it or not they will restock it because who would like to use a toothpaste which is half used by a stranger. They are all thrown away at end and it becomes nice if people take it because those stuff aren't wasted. However, some hotels are there who reuse the unused things like if the person didn't used the shampoo then they will keep it instead of throwing it so in such hotels if you take the shampoo which you didn't used then it is not good. But things like towel, bed sheet, bathrobe and all which are provided by hotel and are washable shouldn't be taken because the hotel washes it and uses it again so if you take them then you aren't taking it but stealing it.
She prolly means things like soap/shampoo installed in the shower
