It won't take you long to ensure a proper night's sleep with no worries of being woken up.
Sleeping in a lovely hotel room is a luxury and we often have no problem getting to sleep thanks to the comfortable beds and soft sheets, but sometimes we can be hit with an issue.
It's early hours of the morning an the sun in coming up... and you're blinded by the light throught the gaps in your supposed blackout blinds.
It doesn't matter how swanky your room is, there's nothing worse than being woken up way too early cause of something as small as curtains with a bit of a gap in them.
There's been a viral Twitter hack however, that's resolved everyone's issues, and it's using only a simple hanger.
If your room has one of the clip hangers - usually used for trousers - then you're sorted as you can use it to clip the two parts of the curtains together and enjoy a lovely night's sleep.
