A recent video On TikTok the former hotel manager reveals why certain hotel toiletries should not be used by guests.

She said, “I’ll never use the refillable bottles of shampoo and conditioner that I see in the shower.”

People could add anything to them. I have seen Nair, as well as other things.

The pumps are easily unscrewed and can therefore be filled with anything.

Melissa showed a toiletry dispenser that was locked in place.

She continued: “Now I will be using these because you need to unlock them in order to refill them.”

Locked refillable pump will prevent guests from tampering with them.

This video was viewed more than 1,7 million times, prompting some guests to express concern about the safety and efficacy of their own shower gels.

Someone wrote, “The whole shampoo issue stresses me out.” I’m on the road all the time, and I keep my packing to a minimum by using hotel shampoo.”

Melissa stated in the comment that certain hotels will stock mini bottles of shampoo at reception.

In the comments, other hotel employees also offered their advice.

A person said: “As an ex-housekeeping manager for Disney, I have never used the glass cups that are in the hotel rooms.”

A third person said: “I was working at a resort when I saw the housekeeper use the same cloth to clean the coffee pot and then wipe down the toilet! I’m still disgusted.”

Another person said: “After working as a housekeeper in a hotel I would never stay there again.”

Melissa recently explained why people should not use ice buckets because they are used for “things that you would never want to consider.”
