We save on washing – not on hygiene
We use environmentally friendly and environmentally labelled detergents and do not wash clothes, towels and bed linen that have not been used. To save on detergents, packaging, water and energy, we give you the option of using your towels an extra day. Please leave your towel on the floor if you wish to have it changed. We also normally wash your bed linen every third night only, unless you ask us to do it more frequently.
