Say so long to the tiny soaps, shampoos, and conditioners in hotel rooms. One chain’s doing it so you know they’ll all follow.

Bulk products will take their place, presumably in pump dispensers. It makes so much sense. After all, if you’re worried about who used the pump before you, you’re already at the sink or in the shower so just wash your hands! But I’m left with a fundamental question. What will we steal now?
