Sometimes. I'll often bring home that which I've opened, if there is enough left to bother. I do not, day after day, take the new bottles, put them in my luggage so they will set out new ones again, and stash those away yet again. I will just take what is there once if I like the product.

We were in Florida a few weeks ago & it was all bath and body works warm vanilla sugar products. That particular scent totally flairs up my allergies something fierce - gives me a migraine. Luckily, I had sample soaps and stuff in my travel bag (from a previous hotel) so I did not have to use the warm vanilla sugar stuff. I did, however, pack it and bring it home as I know it's DH's sisters' favorite B&BW scent. So she's getting the little shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soap in that scent.

The BBW warm vanilla sugar scent gives me migraines also!! Certain perfumes that have an underlying vanilla musk smell do the same thing to me. Plain vanilla is okay, but when they give it that musk smell too, that's when it gives me headaches. When I tell people this, they usually look at me like I am weird or something.

You're not weird. Scent can be a powerful headache trigger - moreso than light or noise.
There are very few perfumes I can wear because so many of them give me a screeching b**** harpy of a headache. My dad gets a migraine just walking through the cosmetics section of a department store because of all the perfume in the air.

I always take the soap, shampoos, lotions, etc.... I have 2 teenage daughters and they are great for their gym lockers and after games when they shower at school. I haven't bought any of that stuff for the girls for a few years now. My mom and my mil also get it for me when they stay at motels since they know I use it for the girls at school.

Yes. We always take them. I have a glass bowl set up in our guest bathroom. There is always something someone forgot.

Always, and I expect that the hotel's pretty much expect you to as well.

Yes. I made liquid soap out of the hotel soaps I've collected! Instructions HERE.
