Monday 28 April 2008 — This is 15 years old. Be careful.
Here’s something I don’t understand: why do hotels provide all sorts of little bottles of bathroom stuff, but they don’t give you toothpaste? At the hotel we stayed at in New York over the weekend, they gave us shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion, and mouthwash. So why not toothpaste?
BTW: this question reminds me of David Weinberger’s Daily Open-Ended Puzzles.
There's gotta be some sort of explanation for this :)
I've had luck at three different hotels over the past few years (once when I traveled late the day the new liquids rules were enacted and TSA tossed my toothpaste; and twice when I merely forgot to pack it). It seems that hotels have complimentary toothpaste, but don't put it in the rooms. It's probably a cost thing.
That explains why they don't offer glue, too. So the real mystery is, "why do hotels provide soap???" ;)
