I'm an ex-hotel manager – and there are two things you are allowed to take without getting in trouble | The Sun

A FORMER hotel manager has revealed the two things guests are allowed to take without getting into trouble.

TikToker Melly, who goes by the name @melly_creations, often shares her tips and tricks from her days of being a manager of a hotel.

In a recent video, she explained which two items holidaymakers can take from the hotel without getting into any hot water.

She said: "You're allowed to take the shampoo, conditioner, and soap from the room you're checked into, especially if you've already opened them because they're just going to get tossed out anyways.

"But if you're walking past the housekeeping cart, don't just help yourself.

"Instead, you should just ask, they'll be more than happy to give you extras if you want."
