I remember an amazing few weeks we spent in Italy years ago… We hiked the picturesque towns of Cinque Terre, took a boat ride around Venice, had a wine tasting in the Tuscan valley, and more.
It was a wonderful, memorable trip. And of course, we stayed in Airbnbs the entire time.
Those were memorable too, although honestly some of them not for the best reasons. A consistent issue that kept popping up with our hosts was that they were not supplying washcloths.
They all gave us towels – that’s an Airbnb requirement – and most of them gave us face towels.
But not a single one gave us washcloths.
It seems so obvious to me. A guest may or may not use a face towel. But nearly everyone is going to need something to wash in the shower with, right?
Apparently, it’s not as obvious as I thought.
So today’s Tuesday tip is one that I never thought I’d have to say. Provide your guests with washcloths. For goodness’ sake, you can get a pack of 12 for like $5. It’s neither expensive nor difficult to buy, and will really make a difference in the quality of your guests’ stay.
If you choose not to provide washcloths, you may very well have guests who mention their absence in their review and use face towels in their place (both of which I did!).
So THAT’S the reason you couldn’t join me & Cait at the festivals; you were in Italy! That deserves a pass. Hope you had a great time!
