We’re all guilty of it – barely using those mini bars of hotel soap. A new video has revealed what happens to them, and it’s not for the squeamish.
A TikTok post has revealed what happens to many of the half used hotel soaps guests leave behind. And while some have celebrated it, it’s left a few people feeling less than fresh.
A Science Insider video on TikTok recently pulled back the curtain on one of Clean the World’s recycling soap factories.
Clean the World is a Florida based organisation that collects old hotel soaps, breaks them down, disinfects them and moulds them into new bars, reports the New York Post.
“Hotels throw out millions of bars of used soap every week,” a Science Insider reporter says in the video. “But they don’t have to go in the trash”.
