IF you have ever stayed in a hotel room then you have probably seen a strange item stuck to the wall in the bathroom.
A hotel worker has shared a video on Tiktok revealing that it is actually a clothesline – although people have said it is like something from a horror film.
The woman, who uses the handle @hotel_hacks_, showed her 42,000 followers how the line worked.
She said: "Did you ever look at your hotel shower and wonder what the heck is that? Let me show you."
She then pulled the line from the circular holder and dragged it to the opposite wall which had a catch for it to hook into.
The result was a washing line across the bath.
She said: "Use it to hand your wet wash cloths, bathing suits and anything else you need to air dry."
The video has been watched more than 20,000 times, with some people commenting that they didn't know that's what it was used for.
