24 Useful Hotel Hacks Every Traveler Should Know.

Self-care is extremely important and everyone deserves to get away every once in a while. Whether you're planning a romantic getaway with your significant other, or you're planning a chaotic family vacation to Disneyland, there's one inevitable truth: you're most likely going to need to reserve a hotel room. Traveling can be extremely hectic, especially if there are kids involved, but that doesn't mean you have to be stressed out the entire time. If you're ready to save yourself a bit of the frustration that comes with traveling, then check out these essential lifehacks to make your hotel stay go as smoothly as possible.

#1. Pant Hanger Trick

Light pollution can be a serious problem when you're trying to get some shut-eye. This can be especially true in hotels because of how big the windows are in the room. Well, you can put an end to your early morning wake-ups by heading to the closet to look for a clothes hanger that has the clips on it. Then, all you have to do is attach it to the curtains and you won't have to worry about that pesky sunlight any longer.

#2. Shower Cap Protection

You know how most hotel rooms come with a shower cap for you to wear while washing up? Well, they have more helpful uses than protecting your hair from getting wet. Before you put your shoes in your bag, put the shower cap around them. This way, you won't dirty clothes in the process of putting them into your luggage.

#3. Sugar Exfoliator

Many people overlook the sugar packets that come in their hotel room, but they don't know what they're missing out on. Instead of bringing your entire collection of skincare products, grab some of those packets and mix them with your favorite facial cleanser to create a delicious sugar scrub that will exfoliate your skin while you're on the go.

#4. Snack Time

It can sometimes be difficult to make time for eating while your traveling for business. The next time you're running late, grab the coffee pot in your hotel room, and some oatmeal or a pack of ramen noodles, and prepare yourself a quick meal. You can even try using microwave steamer bags or instant mac and cheese!

#5. Hidden Phone Charger

In the age of technology, it can be extremely inconvenient to forget your charger while you're traveling. The great thing about this is that most hotel rooms have a place for you to charge your phone right in the room! That means that you don't have to rush to the store looking for a charger anymore!
