Do you leave toiletries at hotel or take them along?Often, after arriving at hotels and resorts etc., we are provided with toiletries. Sometimes, hotels provide very basic toiletries like just a towel and a soap. More costlier and finer hotels offer more like comb, shampoo, conditioner, hair oil, moisturizer, and so on. While I once read that it is good courtesy to leave the toiletries in their spaces after your use, many people I know tend to take them along while checking out. According to some people, thus taking the toiletries away shows cheap, grab-whatever-you-find mentality. The logic on the other side is, nobody is going to use another person's used toiletries. The hoteliers are going to dump them anyway, and provide the next resident with fresh toiletries. So what is the point of wasting things when you are free to take them along and later use at home?
What is your opinion in this matter? Personally I think that hoteliers should have a drop-box where we ourselves can dump half-used toiletries, which can be later given to the people in need. The sweet fragrance of the conditioner or moisturizer that you have just used once during your stay can really bring a smile on a poor person's face who had never had the luxury to use them.
