Kad su čudovišni putnici skuhali donje rublje unutra čajnik u hotelskoj sobi? Ovo je pitanje bilo na usnama mnogih ljudi prošle godine kada je korisnik Twittera pitao svoje pratioce je li ta praksa uobičajena.

Ovaj znatiželjan upit izazvao je još mnogo više. Naime, & quotŠta ste uradili sa pantalonama što nalaže primjenu ključanje vode? & quot; & quot; Jeste li previše gusti da shvatite da je stavljanje gaćica u sudoper i zatim polivanje kipućom vodom daleko logičnije? & quot;

Doktori Heather Hendrickson, viši predavač molekularne bioznanosti na Univerzitetu Massey u Aucklandu, rekli su: "To je super super super super grozno." To je zapravo naučni izraz. Dodala je: & quot; Vjerovatno vaš prijatelj neće imati veliki broj patogena otpornih na toplinu u svom prljavom rublju, ali ne znamo šta on ima unutra niti koliko bi mogao biti bolestan. & Quot Oh, definitivno nešto nije u redu.

Iako Telegraph Travel ne može zamisliti priliku u kojoj će vam se stavljanje gaćica u čajnik isplatiti, postoje mnogi drugi lukavi, manje odvratni načini da iskoristite stvari koje se nalaze u većini hotelskih soba.

Uštedite novac na hrani

1. Skuvajte jaje

Bolje od kuhanog donjeg rublja je kuhano jaje. I čajnik bi mogao obaviti posao ako radije ne izdvojite 15 funti za preskupi doručak (čak smo čuli da ih ljudi koriste za kuhanje tjestenine).

2. Nazdravite

Tost sa sirom na meniju posluge u sobi košta 10 funti. Ali vekna hleba i klin čedra iz lokalnog supermarketa koštaju samo nekoliko funti. Pretvorite ga u rastopljenu dobrotu pomoću svoje praktične pegle u sobi.

3. Uživajte u besplatnom ručku

Kažu da ne postoji besplatan ručak? Ne ako uzmete dodatni pecivo, malo lonca džema i jogurt od jagoda iz pufera za doručak. Umotajte sve u kapu za tuširanje i uštedeli ste sebi desetku.

Nabavite najbolju sobu

4. Žali se

Britanci nisu sjajni kada se radi o pritužbama (gospođa Richards iz Fawlty Towers je značajan izuzetak), ali ako niste zadovoljni svojom sobom, imate pravo to reći - i vidjeti alternative. Hoteli, posebno stariji, dolaze u svim oblicima i veličinama, pa biste mogli dobiti bolji budoar. Ako hotel nije pun, možda ćete čak biti nadograđeni.

5. Zatvorite zavese

Ne postoji ništa gore od zavjesa koje se ne zatvaraju pravilno - garantiraju neželjeno rano buđenje u zoru. Zato upotrijebite vješalicu za odjeću sa kopčama.

6. Pojačajte

Nema zvučnika u sobi? Stavite telefon u šolju ili staklo da biste dramatično poboljšali kvalitet zvuka vaših melodija.

7. Uživajte u većem ekranu

Izbjegnite plaćanje filmova na zahtjev povezivanjem prijenosnog računara sa televizorom u sobi pomoću HDMI kabela. Rezultat? Netflix na većem ekranu.

8. Parni snovi

Nema gvožđa? Zgodan nusproizvod dugog, vrućeg tuša je to što se rezultirajuća izmagljena kupaonica može koristiti kao aparat za kuhanje na pari. Objesite košulju ili haljinu i gledajte kako nabori nestaju.

9. Operite veš

Ne prokuvajte pantalone. Ali izbjegavajte epske hotelske račune za pranje rublja tako što ćete oprati odjeću u kadi koristeći deterdžent za putovanja (verzija od 100 ml košta 1,50 funti), a zatim je objesiti da se osuši na radijatorima za ručnike.

10. Uslovite sve

Zaboravili ste pjenu za brijanje? Ne bojte se, regenerator radi kao razumna alternativa. Proizvod za kosu služi i kao sredstvo za uklanjanje šminke s očiju.

11. Vidite jasno

Nije li nevjerojatno neugodno kad se želite obrijati/diviti se svom lijepom licu nakon vrućeg tuširanja, ali morate pričekati dobrih 10 minuta da se ogledalo rasprši? Da. Da, jeste. Pa, oslobodite se okova zrcalne magle. Prije nego što se istuširate (možda večer prije) obilno protrljajte dio ogledala komadom sapuna. Zatim uzmite suhu krpu i uklonite sapun. Ovo će spriječiti kondenzaciju magle na ogledalu. Jedno sapunjenje trajat će nekoliko dana.

Hakovanje gadžeta

12. Ostanite naplaćeni

Zaboravili ste adapter za punjač za iPhone? Možete zatražiti posudbu na recepciji. Ili budite zaista samodostatni i upotrijebite USB priključak na stražnjoj strani televizora za punjenje uređaja.

Ostanite na sigurnom

13. Ne uznemiravaj

Boravite u hotelu u centru grada i pazite se da vam neko ne provali u sobu? Objesite znak Ne ometaj na vrata i ostavite dojam da još uvijek drijemate.

Uzmi suvenir

14. Napunite torbu

Jacob Tomsky, autor bestselera Heads in Beds, memoara o 10 godina provedenih u hotelijerstvu, objašnjava:
& quotHoteli imaju mnogo artikala, svih slatkih i putnih, koji čekaju u prostorijama za skladištenje i sve što trebate učiniti je podići telefon i pitati. Odjava iz hotela nije poput prolaska kroz aerodromsko osiguranje. Nijedan ugledni hotelijer neće htjeti otvoriti prtljagu i potražiti šampon. Nadamo se da ćete uzeti pogodnosti. Želimo da ih kasnije upotrijebite i mislite na nas. Želimo da ta cipela za cipele od 1,79 USD koju ste ukrali bude razlog što rezervirate drugu sobu kod nas po cijeni od 279 USD po noći plus porez! & Quot

15. I saznajte više

Tomsky čak i odobrava odnošenje vaše torbe dalje.

& quotSmatrajte da su kolica domaćica bez posade situacija razbijanja i hvatanja. Spakirajte torbe punjene kremom za ruke sa sapunom od badema i sapunom za lice od guave sa espresso čipsom. Uzmi tri od svega i bježi iz hodnika. Čak i ako vas uhvate, samo recite da vam je ponestalo šampona, ili, još bolje, toaletnog papira, i mislili ste da ćete ih spasiti problema tako što ćete je sami uzeti. Zamislite to ovako: ove pogodnosti su tu za vas, vaše su. Nismo u mogućnosti osporiti tvrdnju da prilikom pranja kose radije razbacujete petnaest boca šampona od lavande i maka po cijelom tjemenu poput neke gnjecave nakaze za tuširanje. & Quot

A ako u sobi nema klima uređaja ili ste zaboravili punjač za telefon, pitajte na recepciji. Proizvodi za kosu, dezodoransi i punjači za telefone očigledno su predmeti koje gosti najčešće ostavljaju, pa hotel možda ima po jednu kutiju - ali lijepo pitajte.

Pa, oslobodite se okova zrcalne magle. Prije nego što se istuširate (možda večer prije) obilno protrljajte dio ogledala komadom sapuna. Zatim uzmite suhu krpu i uklonite sapun. Ovo će spriječiti kondenzaciju magle na ogledalu. Jedno sapunjenje trajat će nekoliko dana.

Hakovanje gadžeta

12. Ostanite naplaćeni

Zaboravili ste adapter za punjač za iPhone? Možete zatražiti posudbu na recepciji. Ili budite zaista samodostatni i upotrijebite USB priključak na stražnjoj strani televizora za punjenje uređaja.

Ostanite na sigurnom

13. Ne uznemiravaj

Boravite u hotelu u centru grada i pazite se da vam neko ne provali u sobu? Objesite znak Ne ometaj na vrata i ostavite dojam da još uvijek drijemate.

Uzmi suvenir

14. Napunite torbu

Jacob Tomsky, autor bestselera Heads in Beds, memoara o 10 godina provedenih u hotelijerstvu, objašnjava:
& quotHoteli imaju mnogo artikala, svih slatkih i putnih, koji čekaju u prostorijama za skladištenje i sve što trebate učiniti je podići telefon i pitati. Odjava iz hotela nije poput prolaska kroz aerodromsko osiguranje. Nijedan ugledni hotelijer neće htjeti otvoriti prtljagu i potražiti šampon. Nadamo se da ćete uzeti pogodnosti. Želimo da ih kasnije upotrijebite i mislite na nas. Želimo da ta cipela za cipele od 1,79 USD koju ste ukrali bude razlog što rezervirate drugu sobu kod nas po cijeni od 279 USD po noći plus porez! & Quot

15. I saznajte više

Tomsky čak i odobrava odnošenje vaše torbe dalje.

& quotSmatrajte da su kolica domaćica bez posade situacija razbijanja i hvatanja. Spakirajte torbe punjene kremom za ruke sa sapunom od badema i sapunom za lice od guave sa espresso čipsom. Uzmi tri od svega i bježi iz hodnika. Čak i ako vas uhvate, samo recite da vam je ponestalo šampona, ili, još bolje, toaletnog papira, i mislili ste da ćete ih spasiti problema tako što ćete je sami uzeti. Zamislite to ovako: ove pogodnosti su tu za vas, vaše su. Nismo u mogućnosti osporiti tvrdnju da, kad perete kosu, radije bacite petnaest boca šampona od lavande i maka po cijelom tjemenu kao neka gnjecava nakaza za tuširanje. & Quot

A ako u sobi nema klima uređaja ili ste zaboravili punjač za telefon, pitajte na recepciji. Proizvodi za kosu, dezodoransi i punjači za telefone očigledno su predmeti koje gosti najčešće ostavljaju, pa hotel možda ima po jednu kutiju - ali lijepo pitajte.


Hotelski hakovi: 15 genijalnih savjeta za poboljšanje vašeg boravka

Upotrijebite ovo za kuhanje jaja, kuhanje rezanci, ali ne i za čišćenje hlača Kredit: GETTY

Kad su čudovišni putnici skuhali donje rublje unutra čajnik u hotelskoj sobi? Ovo je pitanje bilo na usnama mnogih ljudi prošle godine kada je korisnik Twittera pitao svoje pratioce je li ta praksa uobičajena.

Ovaj znatiželjan upit izazvao je još mnogo više. Naime, & quotŠta ste uradili sa pantalonama što nalaže primjenu ključanje vode? & quot; & quot; Jeste li previše gusti da shvatite da je stavljanje gaćica u sudoper i potom polivanje kipućom vodom daleko logičnije? & quot;

Doktori Heather Hendrickson, viši predavač molekularne bioznanosti na Univerzitetu Massey u Aucklandu, rekli su: "To je super super super super grozno." To je zapravo naučni izraz. Dodala je: & quot; Vjerovatno vaš prijatelj neće imati veliki broj patogena otpornih na toplinu u svom prljavom rublju, ali ne znamo šta on ima unutra niti koliko bi mogao biti bolestan. & Quot Oh, definitivno nešto nije u redu.

Iako Telegraph Travel ne može zamisliti priliku u kojoj će vam se stavljanje gaćica u čajnik isplatiti, postoje mnogi drugi lukavi, manje odvratni načini da iskoristite stvari koje se nalaze u većini hotelskih soba.

Uštedite novac na hrani

1. Skuvajte jaje

Bolje od kuhanog donjeg rublja je kuhano jaje. I čajnik bi mogao obaviti posao ako radije ne izdvojite 15 funti za preskupi doručak (čak smo čuli da ih ljudi koriste za kuhanje tjestenine).

2. Nazdravite

Tost sa sirom na meniju posluge u sobi košta 10 funti. Ali vekna hleba i klin čedra iz lokalnog supermarketa koštaju samo nekoliko funti. Pretvorite ga u rastopljenu dobrotu pomoću svoje praktične pegle u sobi.

3. Uživajte u besplatnom ručku

Kažu da ne postoji besplatan ručak? Ne ako uzmete dodatni pecivo, malo lonca džema i jogurt od jagoda iz pufera za doručak. Umotajte sve u kapu za tuširanje i uštedeli ste sebi desetku.

Nabavite najbolju sobu

4. Žali se

Britanci nisu sjajni kada se radi o pritužbama (gospođa Richards iz Fawlty Towers je značajan izuzetak), ali ako niste zadovoljni svojom sobom, imate pravo to reći - i vidjeti alternative. Hoteli, posebno stariji, dolaze u svim oblicima i veličinama, pa biste mogli dobiti bolji budoar. Ako hotel nije pun, možda ćete čak biti nadograđeni.

5. Zatvorite zavese

Ne postoji ništa gore od zavjesa koje se ne zatvaraju pravilno - garantiraju neželjeno rano buđenje u zoru. Zato upotrijebite vješalicu za odjeću sa kopčama.

6. Pojačajte

Nema zvučnika u sobi? Stavite telefon u šolju ili staklo da biste dramatično poboljšali kvalitet zvuka vaših melodija.

7. Uživajte u većem ekranu

Izbjegnite plaćanje filmova na zahtjev povezivanjem prijenosnog računara sa televizorom u sobi pomoću HDMI kabela. Rezultat? Netflix na većem ekranu.

Pogledajte deo

8. Parni snovi

Nema gvožđa? Zgodan nusproizvod dugog, vrućeg tuša je to što se rezultirajuća izmagljena kupaonica može koristiti kao aparat za kuhanje na pari. Objesite košulju ili haljinu i gledajte kako nabori nestaju.

9. Operite veš

Ne prokuvajte pantalone. Ali izbjegavajte epske hotelske račune za pranje rublja tako što ćete oprati odjeću u kadi koristeći deterdžent za putovanja (verzija od 100 ml košta 1,50 funti), a zatim je objesiti da se osuši na radijatorima za ručnike.

10. Uslovite sve

Zaboravili ste pjenu za brijanje? Ne bojte se, regenerator radi kao razumna alternativa. Proizvod za kosu služi i kao sredstvo za uklanjanje šminke s očiju.

11. Vidite jasno

Nije li nevjerojatno neugodno kad se želite obrijati/diviti se svom lijepom licu nakon vrućeg tuširanja, ali morate pričekati dobrih 10 minuta da se ogledalo rasprši? Da. Da, jeste.

Želimo da ih kasnije upotrijebite i mislite na nas. We want that $1.79 shoehorn you stole to be the reason you book another room with us at the rate of $279 per night plus tax!"

15. And find more

Tomsky even condones taking your swag bag farther afield.

"Consider the unmanned housekeeper’s trolley a smash and grab situation. Pack your bags full of almond butter hand cream and guava face soap with espresso crisps. Take three of everything and get the hell out of the hallway. Even if you do get caught, just say you were out of shampoo, or, even better, out of toilet paper, and thought you’d save them the trouble by grabbing it for yourself. Think of it this way: these amenities are here for you, they are yours. We are in no position to dispute the claim that when you wash your hair you prefer to dump fifteen bottles of lavender and poppy seed shampoo all over your scalp like some gooey shower freak."

And, if the room doesn’t come with conditioner, or you've forgotten your phone charger, just ask at the front desk. Hair products, deodorant and phone chargers are apparently the items most often left behind by guests, so the hotel might have a box of each - but ask nicely.


Hotel hacks: 15 ingenious tips to improve your stay

Use this to boil an egg, cook noodles, but not to clean your pants Credit: GETTY

W hat kind of monstrous traveller boils their underwear unutra a hotel room kettle? This was the question on many people's lips last year when a Twitter user asked their followers whether the practice was commonplace.

This curious query raised many more. Namely, "What have you done to your pants that necessitates the application of ključanje water?", "Are you too dense to realise that putting your knickers in the sink and then pouring on the boiling water is far more logical?" and "Have I drunk tea from a kettle that was used to clean somebody's Y-fronts?"

Medical experts even weighed in. Dr Heather Hendrickson, a Senior Lecturer in Molecular Biosciences at Massey University in Auckland, said: "It is super super super super gross." That's actually the scientific term. She added: "Your friend is unlikely to have a large number of highly heat resistant pathogens in his dirty undergarments but we do not know what he does have in there or how sick he might be." Oh, there's definitely something not right.

While Telegraph Travel cannot conceive an occasion when stuffing your briefs inside a kettle will pay off, there are many other devious, less disgusting ways to take advantage of the items found in most hotel rooms.

Save money on food

1. Boil an egg

Better than boiled underwear is a boiled egg. And a kettle could do the job if you'd rather not fork out £15 for an overpriced breakfast (we've even heard of people using them to cook pasta).

2. Have a toastie

The cheese toastie on the room service menu costs £10. But a loaf of bread and a wedge of cheddar from the local supermarket only costs a few quid. Turn it into melted goodness using your handy in-room iron.

3. Enjoy a free lunch

They say there's no such thing as a free lunch? Not if you nab an extra bread roll, a little pot of jam and a strawberry yoghurt from the breakfast buffer. Wrap it all up in a shower cap and you've saved yourself a tenner.

Get the best room

4. Complain

The British aren't great when it comes to complaining (Mrs Richards from Fawlty Towers being the notable exception), but if you aren't happy with your room, you're entitled to say so - and to see the alternatives. Hotels, especially older ones, come in all shapes and sizes, so you might be given a better boudoir. If the hotel isn't full you might even be get upgraded.

5. Shut the curtains

There's nothing worse than curtains that don't close properly - they guarantee an unwanted early wake-up call at the crack of dawn. So use a clothes hanger with clips to pin them together.

6. Amplify

No in-room speakers? Put your phone in a mug or glass to dramatically improve the sound quality of your tunes.

7. Enjoy a bigger screen

Avoid paying for on-demand movies by connecting your laptop with your in-room TV using an HDMI cable. Rezultat? Netflix on a bigger screen.

Look the part

8. Steam dreams

No iron? A handy by-product of having a long, hot shower is that the resulting misty bathroom can be used as a steamer. Hang up a shirt or dress and watch the creases disappear.

9. Do the washing

Don't boil your pants. But do avoid epic hotel laundry bills by wash your clothes in the bath using travel detergent (a 100ml version costs £1.50) and then hanging them out to dry on the towel radiators.

10. Condition everything

Forgotten your shaving foam? Never fear, conditioner works as a reasonable alternative. The hair product also doubles up as eye make-up remover.

11. See clearly

Isn't it incredibly annoying when you want to shave/admire your pretty face after a hot shower but have to wait a good 10 minutes for the mirror to de-mist? Da. Da, jeste. Well, free yourself from the shackles of mirror fog. Before you shower (maybe the night before) liberally rub a portion of the mirror with a bar of soap. Then take a dry washcloth and buff the soap off. This will keep the mist from condensing on the mirror. And one soaping will last a few days.

Gadget hacks

12. Stay charged

Forgotten the plug adapter for your iPhone charger? You could ask to borrow one from reception. Or be really self-sufficient and use a USB port in the back of the TV to charge your device.

Stay safe

13. Do not disturb

Staying in an inner city hotel and wary about someone breaking into your room? Hang your Do Not Disturb sign on the door and give the impression that you’re still inside having a snooze.

Take a souvenir

14. Fill your bag

Jacob Tomsky, author of the best-selling Heads in Beds, a memoir of 10 years spent in the hotel industry, explains:
"Hotels have plenty of items, all cute and travel-sized, waiting in store rooms and all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask. And checking out from the hotel isn't like going through airport security. No respectable hotelier is going to want to pry open your luggage and search for shampoo. We hope you take the amenities. We want you to use them later and think of us. We want that $1.79 shoehorn you stole to be the reason you book another room with us at the rate of $279 per night plus tax!"

Avoid paying for on-demand movies by connecting your laptop with your in-room TV using an HDMI cable. Rezultat? Netflix on a bigger screen.

Look the part

8. Steam dreams

No iron? A handy by-product of having a long, hot shower is that the resulting misty bathroom can be used as a steamer. Hang up a shirt or dress and watch the creases disappear.

9. Do the washing

Don't boil your pants. But do avoid epic hotel laundry bills by wash your clothes in the bath using travel detergent (a 100ml version costs £1.50) and then hanging them out to dry on the towel radiators.

10. Condition everything

Forgotten your shaving foam? Never fear, conditioner works as a reasonable alternative. The hair product also doubles up as eye make-up remover.

11. See clearly

Isn't it incredibly annoying when you want to shave/admire your pretty face after a hot shower but have to wait a good 10 minutes for the mirror to de-mist? Da. Da, jeste. Well, free yourself from the shackles of mirror fog. Before you shower (maybe the night before) liberally rub a portion of the mirror with a bar of soap. Then take a dry washcloth and buff the soap off. This will keep the mist from condensing on the mirror. And one soaping will last a few days.

Gadget hacks

12. Stay charged

Forgotten the plug adapter for your iPhone charger? You could ask to borrow one from reception. Or be really self-sufficient and use a USB port in the back of the TV to charge your device.

Stay safe

13. Do not disturb

Staying in an inner city hotel and wary about someone breaking into your room? Hang your Do Not Disturb sign on the door and give the impression that you’re still inside having a snooze.

Take a souvenir

14. Fill your bag

Jacob Tomsky, author of the best-selling Heads in Beds, a memoir of 10 years spent in the hotel industry, explains:
"Hotels have plenty of items, all cute and travel-sized, waiting in store rooms and all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask. And checking out from the hotel isn't like going through airport security. No respectable hotelier is going to want to pry open your luggage and search for shampoo. We hope you take the amenities. We want you to use them later and think of us. We want that $1.79 shoehorn you stole to be the reason you book another room with us at the rate of $279 per night plus tax!"

15. And find more

Tomsky even condones taking your swag bag farther afield.

"Consider the unmanned housekeeper’s trolley a smash and grab situation. Pack your bags full of almond butter hand cream and guava face soap with espresso crisps. Take three of everything and get the hell out of the hallway. Even if you do get caught, just say you were out of shampoo, or, even better, out of toilet paper, and thought you’d save them the trouble by grabbing it for yourself. Think of it this way: these amenities are here for you, they are yours. We are in no position to dispute the claim that when you wash your hair you prefer to dump fifteen bottles of lavender and poppy seed shampoo all over your scalp like some gooey shower freak."

And, if the room doesn’t come with conditioner, or you've forgotten your phone charger, just ask at the front desk. Hair products, deodorant and phone chargers are apparently the items most often left behind by guests, so the hotel might have a box of each - but ask nicely.


Hotel hacks: 15 ingenious tips to improve your stay

W hat kind of monstrous traveller boils their underwear unutra a hotel room kettle? This was the question on many people's lips last year when a Twitter user asked their followers whether the practice was commonplace.

This curious query raised many more. Namely, "What have you done to your pants that necessitates the application of ključanje water?", "Are you too dense to realise that putting your knickers in the sink and then pouring on the boiling water is far more logical?" and "Have I drunk tea from a kettle that was used to clean somebody's Y-fronts?"

Medical experts even weighed in. Dr Heather Hendrickson, a Senior Lecturer in Molecular Biosciences at Massey University in Auckland, said: "It is super super super super gross." That's actually the scientific term. She added: "Your friend is unlikely to have a large number of highly heat resistant pathogens in his dirty undergarments but we do not know what he does have in there or how sick he might be." Oh, there's definitely something not right.

While Telegraph Travel cannot conceive an occasion when stuffing your briefs inside a kettle will pay off, there are many other devious, less disgusting ways to take advantage of the items found in most hotel rooms.

Save money on food

1. Boil an egg

Better than boiled underwear is a boiled egg. And a kettle could do the job if you'd rather not fork out £15 for an overpriced breakfast (we've even heard of people using them to cook pasta).

2. Have a toastie

The cheese toastie on the room service menu costs £10. But a loaf of bread and a wedge of cheddar from the local supermarket only costs a few quid. Turn it into melted goodness using your handy in-room iron.

3. Enjoy a free lunch

They say there's no such thing as a free lunch? Not if you nab an extra bread roll, a little pot of jam and a strawberry yoghurt from the breakfast buffer. Wrap it all up in a shower cap and you've saved yourself a tenner.

Get the best room

4. Complain

The British aren't great when it comes to complaining (Mrs Richards from Fawlty Towers being the notable exception), but if you aren't happy with your room, you're entitled to say so - and to see the alternatives. Hotels, especially older ones, come in all shapes and sizes, so you might be given a better boudoir. If the hotel isn't full you might even be get upgraded.

5. Shut the curtains

There's nothing worse than curtains that don't close properly - they guarantee an unwanted early wake-up call at the crack of dawn. So use a clothes hanger with clips to pin them together.

6. Amplify

No in-room speakers? Put your phone in a mug or glass to dramatically improve the sound quality of your tunes.

7. Enjoy a bigger screen

Avoid paying for on-demand movies by connecting your laptop with your in-room TV using an HDMI cable. Rezultat? Netflix on a bigger screen.
