4. Categorize your towels and bathrobes.

Like a bar of soap or toothbrushes, towels are quite personal and shouldn’t be shared between roommates or family members. In order to make sure that everyone is using their own, consider organizing them in separate bins and label them accordingly.

RL Tip: You can also add an extra basket or bin for towels exclusively for guests.
