Hotel rooms can be wildly luxurious, but they lack the creature comforts of a familiar place. Sometimes we wish we could just skip the pricey room service and make a sandwich from our own fridge, instead.

Enter these brilliant hotel-room hacks, which allow you to make the space your own while also solving some pesky problems (ew, dry air!). Check in and check them out.

3. Use a dryer sheet as air freshener

Apply this popular dorm-room trick, which works great for rooms that smell less than fresh, or simply for making them smell more luxurious than they are.

4. Charge your phone with the TV

Fun fact: Many hotel TVs have handy USB ports in the back, where you can conveniently plug in a phone cord.

5. Oh, and bring a power strip too

If you’re traveling with a group, it’s easy to run out of outlets quickly. Bring along a small, lightweight power strip to ensure everyone has space for their phones, hairdryers and laptops.

7. Turn your AC unit into a humidifier

Banish dry hotel-room air by wetting a towel and draping it near your air conditioning unit — you can use the ironing board for this — for a nice, soothing breeze. Ahh, just like home.
