The death of the soap.


I miss tiny soaps, shampoos and body washes, the ones you looted on your last day of check out from hotels.

The cheap motels I frequented had tiny, cute soaps that smelled like sandal and took me back home to India 8500 miles away. They were so small that thrifty motel owners made sure that they lasted only for a couple of showers!

However, my recent stays have been disappointing and the temptation to whisk soaps is no longer there. Thanks to COVID-19, hotels have plastic containers filled with shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

Admit it or not, whisking tiny soaps gave you a feeling of accomplishment.
