To date, my family and I have stayed in more than 10 Airbnbs over the past 3 years and would love to give you suggestions for how to stock your Airbnb with the best products.
What do you provide?
Not all Airbnbs are created equal and owners have the ability to choose how much or how little to provide their guests. In most cases, staying within a particular budget is the primary reason behind what an owner chooses to do. However, we all know that Airbnbs that are “stocked,” typically get higher ratings and better reviews.
At minimum, I highly recommend offering some (or all) of the following:
- minimal everyday cleaning supplies such as disinfectant and an all-purpose cleaner
- dishwashing detergent (liquid or pods)
- laundry detergent and fabric softener
- air freshener (spray or plugins)
If you really want to wow your guests, you may consider providing:
- body soap
- body lotion
- shampoo and conditioner
- drink mixes (for water)
- snack foods (think of a welcome basket)
What You Provide Matters
Even if you choose to provide the bare minimum – what you provide matters. If you’re not already ingredient and allergy-conscious, allow me the opportunity to help you understand what lots of families encounter today.
Over the past 10 years or so, there has been an increase in popular companies cutting corners with their ingredients, which has resulted in lab-made concoctions that have posed serious health threats (especially in children). From chemical burns and rashes to asthma attacks and cold-like flare ups, most products used by Airbnb owners fall into this category.
While most traveling families stay an average of 3 days to a week at an Airbnb, very rarely will they speak of having any issues (unless it’s absolutely necessary).
Provide Your Guest with the Best Products
If you’ve never heard of Melaleuca, The Wellness Company, I’d love to help you get acquainted! We have been customers for over 2 years and will never use any other brand of products. They provide over 500 everyday products, which would make stocking your Airbnb with the best products extremely easy and cost-efficient. If you have a cleaning team, this would also be perfect for them as well.
Just to give you an idea of what you could use, they have:
- all household cleaners (all-purpose, disinfectant, bathroom, stain remover, etc.)
- laundry cleaners (detergent, fabric softener, stain removers for clothing, wrinkle release, etc)
- bathroom necessities (soap, plant-based body wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc.)
- snack foods (drink mix, coffee, popcorn, granola bars, trail mix equivalent, etc.)
- baby products (body wash, lotion, baby wipes)
The cleaners are in concentrated form meaning one small concentrated bottle makes 6 full spray bottles (comes out to $.99 per bottle). The laundry bottles cover 96 loads and with the other necessities, a little goes a long way!
Besides saving money, you can also rest easy knowing that you are providing your guests with products that are nontoxic, greener, and cleaner.
Open a New Stream of Income
The Wellness Company was established in a way where every new customer is enrolled by a current customer. This business model is genius in many ways. For starters, it cuts out pocket-grabbing middlemen. It also cuts out using outside advertisement. And last but not least, it’s a lucrative way to put money back into customer’s pockets.
As a debt-free, privately-owned, 38 year-old company, Frank knew what he was doing when he launched this company. The same values, morals, and beliefs stand true today and it’s amazing to share with others.
In the event one of your guests thoroughly enjoys the products you provide for them to use and they want to begin purchasing them for their own home – you could help them do that! I would be more than happy to provide you with quick and easy information you can provide them with the click of a button, as well as a no-nonsense system for helping them become a customer.
You will receive a monthly thank-you check from The Wellness Store so long as that customer remains active. We can talk monetary particulars should you choose to go this route, and just know that you can bring in a hefty side income! It’s a win-win!
