Pillows

Have you ever wondered why hotels put a mint on your pillow? I’ve had this discussion, countless times, without any satisfactory reasoning or explanation. Maybe because it’s a tradition that has since faded out due to our awakening to dental hygiene, but what are your personal thoughts?

In the situation of AirBnB, I would think that it was a just-in-case lifeline: in the event that your guest forgot to bring their toothbrush, the mint would be to spare them from the embarrassment of waking up to greet you with morning breath! Though I’m pretty sure the dental industry would beg us to provide a small travel sized toothbrush and toothpaste in our bathrooms for temporary measure, this is certainly an old tradition that seems to have stuck around – something that you could consider!
