Why You Should Bring A Lint Roller On Your Next Hotel Vacation

By Jenna Busch


Safety while traveling is always a concern, especially if you're a woman. There is a humble and cheap little item that can help keep your hotel room secure: the lint roller.
Once you're in the room, stick the lint roller under the door. The friction between the sticky surface and the carpet or floor will make the door harder to open.
This trick makes it easier to hear the door moving and call for help. In the morning, you can pull off the outer sheet and use the next one to remove lint from your clothing.
Other protective measures you can take include covering the peephole, putting a hanger on the doorknob, and placing the "do not disturb" sign on the door when you're out.
