The simple trick to getting a better night’s sleep in the hotel room with a hanger
Getting a good night’s sleep in a hotel room can be difficult – especially when the curtains don’t close completely.
But one man shared a clever tip for making sure you get a good night’s sleep when you’re spending the night away — and all you need is a hanger.
Julien Delva, who describes himself as a very regular traveller, explained that hotel guests should tuck the curtains together with a hanger – the way you hang skirts and trousers.
Tucking the curtains together keeps the light out, and the darkness is meant to help guests sleep better.
He went to the question and answer site rate to share his advice, and referred to a clothes hanger as a “special tool”.
He wrote: “You may not be able to control the light from the corridor under the door but you can improve how the curtains block the light from the window.
“The secret is to pinch both sides of the blackout curtains with a special tool.”
Against Julien’s advice, one pilot said Letting some light into the room is key to help you sleep.
Ron Wagner explained that he often sleeps in hotel rooms between flights and regularly wakes up at night disoriented, not knowing where he is.
He revealed his “hack” to get his bearings so he can sleep better.
He said: “The trick is to turn on the bathroom light and leave the door just a tiny crack. The light falling through this gap will help you with your orientation.
“If the curtains don’t completely block the light, then you don’t have to. So the real trick is making sure there is a streak of light somewhere to help you remember where you are.”
A flight attendant explained it clever thing he does with locks on hotel doorswhich saved him a lot of embarrassment.
John Cheshire revealed that he opens the door and swings the lock so the deadbolt sticks out and prevents the door from being closed.
The deadbolt holds the door open so if John steps out for just a moment, the door can’t close behind him and lock him out.
