1. Remove creases
Hang creased clothes in the bathroom while you’re taking a hot shower or give them a quick blast with a hairdryer and the creases will fall out like magic. No iron required.
2. Hang in there
If you’ve got an annoying gap between your curtains that lets in sunlight, use a clothing hanger with clips to seal it completely closed and enjoy longer lie-ins.
3. Scent booster
Pop any free scented soaps you’re not using into drawers with your clothes when you unpack and they’ll act as a natural freshener.
4. Brush up
Take a clothes peg or a kitchen clip away with you to use as a makeshift toothbrush holder.
5. Shine shoes
Scuffed shoes for a night out can get the shoe shine treatment with some of that free body lotion and a piece of cotton wool.
6. Shower cap hack
If you order hotel room service, place a shower cap over any leftovers before you put them in the mini bar fridge. You’ll have fresher food for longer – perfect for midnight snacking.
7. Charge up
If you've run out of plug sockets, charge your phone using the built-in USB port that your TV will almost certainly have.
8. Air freshener
Make your room smell sweeter by taping a dryer sheet to the air con unit, then switch on.
9. Battery boost
Prolong the life of your rechargeable batteries by putting them in your hotel room fridge, sealed in a plastic bag for protection. Leave them there as long as possible.
10. Be cunning with air con
Replace your key card with a business card in the key cardholder when you leave and the air con will stay on, so you can keep cool after a day in the sun.
