What do you do when you soil a hotel towel?

With af. I soaked in in cold water, wrung it out and left in bath. But really I didn’t know what to do (and it was an accident).

Leave it to be washed. I’m sure you’re not the first and won’t be the last. It’s paid for after all!

Yeah just leave it where it is to be washed, it’s not like there’s much else you can do really. I’m sure they’ve seen it plenty of times before!

I’ve always taken it to reception (in a bag if need be) and told them. It seems wrong to just wash it out and leave it without warning.

Leave it in the bath. It's foreseeable thing for them and will be factored into their costs. You Don't know the Chamber maid and she Won't know you. Probably will be bungled into the laundry cart and no one will notice until it goes to the laundry whereupon it will either be washed separately with other soiled stuff or thrown out.

Chuck it in the bath so housekeeping know it needs washing.

I’d put it in a laundry bag with note and then in the bath. Not everyone wears plastic gloves and I wouldn’t want them to be scooping it up and touching the stain because they didn’t see until it was too late.

Leave a note and a tip? And yes to putting it in a plastic bag

PurplePillowCase Sun 19-Nov-17 16:40:21

just leave it. hotel laundry will deal with all sorts of stains (there is a reason why they are mostly white)

What is AF?

Just leave it to be washed.

Side note why do hotels etc always insist on white sheets and towels?

AF- Aunt Flo aka a period.

DS was sick on holiday. We washed the worst out and stripped the bed down bundling the bedding clean sides out for picking up. It was about the least grim that we could make it for handling.

I remember when Dd had really bad nits on holiday. I combed them out and wiped them on a hotel towel meaning to bag it up and tell them. We put it in the balcony outside to deal with in the morning.

The next morning some of the bastards were still moving🤢So we left it.

When we came back they'd cleared it away😳😳😳😳😵l was mortified
