No matter if someone is staying in your Airbnb for one night or seven, they might want to wash their hair. Therefore, offering shampoo and conditioner are bathroom staples so that guests can wash properly during their stay.

Keeping them full to the top looks good and means that the guest can feel that they can use as much as they like, which will make them feel that they are getting the most for their money. 

2. Body wash

Another bathroom essential for good hygiene is body wash. There is nothing worse than going on holiday, getting in the shower, and realising that there is nothing to wash with.

Make sure to add one to both the shower and the bath so that guests can be ready to wash at any moment.

3. Hand soap

For the sink, hand soap is key. Add a new one for each new guest; otherwise, it can be unsanitary. A hand soap that is nicely packaged will amp up your bathroom aesthetic and make your guests feel like they are in a hotel. 

Hand Sanitiser
