When you book into a hotel on your next vacation, chances are that the small freebies and amenities in your room will boost your experience. Still, not everything you find in your hotel room is appropriate to take home with you once your vacation is over. Here is your guide to what you can and cannot take from your home room.

What You Can Take

From those sweet-smelling mini shampoos to soaps and disposable slippers, toiletries and disposable items are perfectly fine to take home, at least according to Mehmet Erdem, an associate professor of hotel operations and technology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Stationery such as pens, paper, and notebooks are also fair game.

What You Can’t Take

Linens, towels, pillowcases, and sheets should not be taken home under any circumstances. These are expensive items and you could be guilty of stealing if you take them. Any books and magazines in the room should also be left there when you vacate at the end of your stay.
