I LOATH SCATTER CUSHIONS

(41 Posts)

I hate scatter cushions...even the name scatter is vile. I know that they maketh a bedroom look cosy, but "public place" scatter cushions; those on a hotel bed...well I can't help thinking that some naked person has used it in a "peekaboo' type way to cover their money-maker, or rested their lice-infested head on them.
And don't get me started on the 'throw' at the bottom of the bed... I always think that the person before me has just either had sex on the sexy-fur-throw OR just done it AND wiped their knob on it...just because they can OR crawled 'pubically' over it, in a sex-kittenish way...
Obv. I have an over active imagination, watched too many US dramas but dear reader...when do they ever get washed????

I just always assume that people have sat on them, put their bags on them, or thrown them on the floor and they are being put back on the otherwise clean bed. But yes, they annoy me. I don't want to have them on top of clean pillowcases, and if I take them off the bed I don't want to come back and find they've been put back on. And I don't care if the bed doesn't fully tie in with the curtain colour scheme.

You know, I didn't mind them until I read that OP. I'm never going to trust a public scatter cushion again.

Here we take our pillows and throws off the bed, and do wash them pretty regularly.
Public scatter cushions are something different entirely envy< not envy

I have my head on a hotel cushion this very moment - and my mind is now questioning. Yuk. I dislike the term scatter cushion too and don’t understand the little piece of cloth across the foot of the bed.
Just checked and cushion looks and smells OK.

crumbs1- are you completely sure??! Have you tried that blue light thingy that they use in CSI?! he he

I don't like anything that is purely aesthetic. I just want the things that are functional to look beautiful.

Hate having to unmake my bed before I get in.

Ttbb Thu 26-Oct-17 16:59:26

I always just remove them and throw them in the bottom of the wardrobe because they are useless.

Sparklingbrook Thu 26-Oct-17 17:02:57

I am very dubious about hotel cushions too. I bet they don't get swapped for each guest, or the covers washed every time.

I just chuck them off the bed.

Also hate the runner thing that goes along the bottom of the bed. Yuk.

I am weird though because I take my pillow from home wherever I go because I don't like the thought of other people's heads on my pillow. blush

Is the little bit of cloth at the end of the bed so that scuzzy people can lay there with their shoes on?

scurryfunge Thu 26-Oct-17 17:05:38

You need to worry about the curtains not the cushions wink

Only1scoop Thu 26-Oct-17 17:09:44

I always chuck em in the corner along with Any 'throws'

scurryfunge....pray tell???

furcoatandnoknickers Thu 26-Oct-17 17:13:13

Raining Summer - in one! but as mentioned also doubles up as sexy-wrap!

scurryfunge Thu 26-Oct-17 17:41:27

Ultra violet detectors are well known for picking up semen on curtains where men have wiped themselves.

furcoatandnoknickers Thu 26-Oct-17 18:09:00

Scurry - whaaaat??
NO 1. have sex in hotel bed, using all the accoutrements provided EG:
SCATTER CUSHIONS and THROW....
2. jump up
3. think..oh blimey, its dripping(gaaag)
4. look round
5. think - oh...i'll just wipe off on this fabric-type-thing... conveniently provided for knob-related-issues
?????aaaargghhhh ha ha

I stayed a decent-ish hotel recently and although everything, including pillowcase, was clean, the actual pillow stank of dirty hair. It really made me boak.

Sparklingbrook Thu 26-Oct-17 18:58:29

Exactly lido. That's why I take my own pillow. i would take my own duvet i have done this and my mattress if I could.

You sound a little sex obsessed op grin

ClashCityRocker Thu 26-Oct-17 19:38:57

Our favourite self catering place has no less than eight of the fucking things on the bed.

They just get flung on the floor so the room looks messy immediately and I spend the remainder of the time tripping over them.

(it is a great place other than that)

I can kind of understand the throws at the end of the bed as people walk in and immediately flop on the bed so it protects from shoes.... But then again, it shouldn't be an issue if they put on a clean duvet cover for each guest...

Gosh well id never thought about people applying their pubic areas to scatter cushions. But I do think they are pointless and annoying and make everywhere look clutterred and twee. My MIL had them everywhere!!!

furcoatandnoknickers Thu 26-Oct-17 20:52:16

Bluntness - I wish!! - or should that be my DH wishes! gringrin

hesterton Thu 26-Oct-17 20:56:50

I read that as pubic scatter cushion after reading op.

Imcidently, what is the actual difference between a cushion and a scatter cushion?

Only1scoop Thu 26-Oct-17 21:14:03

I include ditching the bed adornments as part as my initial pube check of hotel whites.
