David Antico took to Quora to share the hacks he learned as the manager of five hotels.

He said: “Whether you’re getting ready for the day, having a midday break, or kicking your feet up at the end of the night, use these suggestions to make your travels a bit simpler.”

His first piece of advice was to get your bathroom to double up as a steamer.

He said: “When you travel, your clothes are normally folded and placed inside your bag.

“Allow the steam from the shower to eliminate the wrinkles by hanging your clothes in the bathroom.”

Next he suggested a very handy alternative use for the free shower cap that is often left in your bathroom.

He said: “Hiking, rainy walks, and sandy toes are all part of the vacation experience.

“Put your dirty, wet, or salt-water-soaked shoes in the shower caps that come with your room.

“Keep the rest of your garments clean by securing the cap.”

His next tip was to use the coffee machine for more than just coffee.

He said: “The coffee maker is useful for more than just making coffee in the morning.

“It can also be used to boil water for porridge or quick noodles.”

Finally his proposed a hanger trick to make sure your curtains are fully drawn and your room is totally dark while you sleep.

He said: “It’s bad enough to wake up to an alarm, but it’s far worse to wake up to blinding sunshine seeping through the slit in the curtains before your alarm goes off.

“Use the hangers in your closet to avoid this. Clip the curtain gap closed with the clips you’d normally use for slacks or a skirt.

“You’ll be well on your way to becoming a morning person after a decent night’s sleep.”
