STRIPPING the bed or emptying the bin when you check out of a hotel room might seem like a kind and helpful thing to do.
But when one woman revealed her thorough cleaning regime, some housekeepers told her they weren’t happy about it.
Tiktok user Rhiannon shared a video where she went round her hotel room tidying up before check out.
She said: “Things I do when leaving a hotel that just make sense.
“Gather the towels, take out the trash, strip the bed, clean out the fridge, leave a tip.”
The video has been watched 430,000 times and sparked a debate in the comments section.
While some people praised Rhiannon for helping tidy up, some hotel cleaners commented telling her not to bother trying to help as they’ve got a system in place for cleaning and this disrupts them.
One hotel worker wrote: “As someone who works in a hotel, we appreciate the tip. But we all have a system on cleaning the room so it’s best to just leave it as is.”
Another put: “I used to hate this when I did housekeeping. The tip yes – we got the rest.”
A third put: “I’m a cleaner in hotel rooms and I hate when guests strip the bed. Don’t mind everything else though.”
However, other housekeepers appreciated the effort she’d gone to, and thanked her for helping them out.
One put: “As a housekeeper, thank you. If you’re short on time, at least make sure garbage is picked up.”
Another wrote: “As a housekeeping supervisor, thank you.”
A hotel manager has previously revealed that they hate it when guests strip the beds because they don’t always change the sheets.
Flavio Serreti told Insider: “On busy days, staff will simply plump pillows and reuse the same sheets, only changing the linens every three to four days.
“Stripping the bed every morning can add unnecessary minutes to the time-sensitive housekeeping staff duties.”
