No More Stains

Hubby Tony and I attended a great Couples Retreat this weekend. Each year five couples plan the weekend, and each presents a talk based on their experience. After each talk there are small group discussion sessions. This year's topics were laughter, communication, partnership, getting through adversity as a couple, and spirituality. The schedule also includes time for general socializing, large group activities, and plenty of free time.

The retreat center bedrooms are plain but comfortable. The linens and towels they provide are the standard white hotel variety, but they're fluffy and large enough to completely cover your body. This year there was something new on the towel rack--two black washcloths designated specifically for removing makeup.  I guess the center got tired of replacing stained washcloths.

  2. I don't wear make-up. Do I have to use the washcloths?

    God bless.

  3. I have seen these at many places we've stayed this past year. It is definitely a new thing. One hotel even had spa brand makeup remover pads. Those were very nice and I collected the extras and brought them home. I never take the small soaps and lotions, but these I took because they were very useful and nice.

    1. I only take the soaps and lotions I've used part of, since I figure they'd just be discarding those anyway.

  4. It is a pain for hotels to remove makeup and I think that this is a great idea.
