A few years ago, my family and I traveled to Park City, Utah for our annual summer getaway. We decided to reserve a vacation rental property rather than book a traditional hotel room for the trip. Our overall experience was fabulous and our host/property manager was gracious, but I quickly realized that staying in a private rental residence offered a few challenges I had not anticipated.
There was only one plastic trash bag in the kitchen. A germy sponge in the sink was aged and well-used. Soap dispensers around the home felt diluted even while their contents were harsh on the hands. And, when we went to wash our clothes, only one non-eco-friendly laundry detergent pod was readily available. While I hoped this situation was an exception to the vacation rental rule, it wasn’t. Future family adventures in rental properties offered similar situations.
Sure, it’s not hard to go to a local store and buy cleaning products. But these items usually come in quantities that are larger than needed for a family vacation. That means either leaving the remaining supplies behind for future vacationers – no fair! – or packing them up and lugging them home in already stuffed luggage – no way! Plus, who really wants to do mundane shopping for essential cleaning items and first aid supplies instead of enjoying some much desired and deserved R&R? Not me or my family members!
That’s where I got the idea for TripKitt! Whether you’re going on a one-, two-, or three-week excursion and staying in a vacation rental property, we’ve got you covered. Our Kitts have the perfect amount of dish and hand soap, laundry detergent, trash bags, first aid supplies, and a whole lot more to make your stay comfortable, convenient, and worry-free.
We’ve prioritized working with suppliers who are committed to making people- and planet-friendly products in the USA. On top of that, I’m proud to say that our hand and dish soaps are my personal formulas created right here in Cypress, Texas.
Vacation time is meant to be enjoyed with family and friends, so let us take the hassle out of your next trip.
