Hotel stays are the choice of many people on their holidays. There are hotels to meet nearly every budget and need out there. However, even tip-top hotel rooms can have something wrong with them.
However, travellers have taken to social media to share their advice for this issue.
One top tip to beat the problem is to be crafty with a coat hanger.
Holidaymakers recommend sourcing a coat hanger with clips.
Instead of using this to hand up a pair of trousers, it can be used as DIY solution.
The hack is simply to clip the two sides of the curtains together using the clips.
This way the curtains will be pulled totally shut and won’t let any light in.
One Twitter user posted a photo of the cunning move.
Rick Klau captioned the image of the coat hanger and curtain in his hotel.
This is because there is the unpleasant risk of bed bugs.
Plopping your baggage on the hotel room bed could enable the critters to clamber aboard and hitch a free ride home with you.
According to the NHS: “Bedbugs are small insects that often live on furniture or bedding. Their bites can be itchy, but do not usually cause other health problems.”
The health body added: “Bedbugs can hide in many places, including on bed frames, mattresses, clothing, furniture, behind pictures and under loose wallpaper.”
