We followed your bathrobe
Obviously hotel bathrobe stealing has assumed epic proportions in the USA.
CNN reports that a Miami based company has pioneered a linen technology tracking chip.
They implant them in the linen. They last 300 washes apparently – I suppose that is the life of a hotel sheet.
Not only do they assist in tracking those bathrobes guests secrete in their luggage, they are used to tack linen as it passes around the hotel.
Apparently in a given month, hotels can lose between 5 and 20% of their towels, sheets and robes.
The towels and robes I can understand – but the sheets – who knew?
