We followed your bathrobe

Obviously hotel bathrobe stealing has assumed epic proportions in the USA.

CNN reports that a Miami based company has pioneered a linen technology tracking chip.

They implant them in the linen. They last 300 washes apparently - I suppose that is the life of a hotel sheet.

Not only do they assist in tracking those bathrobes guests secrete in their luggage, they are used to tack linen as it passes around the hotel.

Apparently in a given month, hotels can lose between 5 and 20% of their towels, sheets and robes.

The towels and robes I can understand - but the sheets - who knew?
