Thanks Deborah for the giggle of the afternoon whilst I await TripAdvisor guests who found it impossible to inform me of their estimated time of arrival, which ends up problematic for me.....should I begin mowing the lawn now that it's sprinkling, should I plant those flowers I brought home two weeks ago, work on my taxes due tomorrow......tis usually the case....they...tripadvisor, flipkey, et al., just don't get the communication thing.
So far this is my favorite ewwwwww....
"Maybe me, and everyone I've ever slept with, are doing this wrong, but in my experience there is always going to be some skin-duvet cover contact, so the duvet cover should ABSOLUTELY be washed between guests, even if you're doing that weird American thing of throwing in an (entirely unnecessary) upper sheet in the mix."
Americans don't wash the top sheet? the duvet was the question of address, not sheets and all the other parts; and I loved the Dateline post you shared of the hotels in NYC who just "make er back up.".......NEXT!!!
Funny thread. Maybe on my next trip to the States, hotel or strange airbnb, I take a sleeping bag liner to be safe. I wash everything, corton blankets and rugs included. Wool rugs less often but still every few months and after suspicious guests. When I buy them, I give them 3 years, some are lasting much longer. When the machine is not fill, I throw in a shower curtain or tub liner. Some off those turn out to have washing off patterns - off they go, straight to the plastic bin.
