    My husband travels and always stays at the WESTIN HOTELS and he always brings back to me unopened bottles of shampoo, conditoner, hand cream and mouth wash that he has not used the last day.

    They are the HEAVENLY BATH line.
    1) Shampoo
    2) Conditioner
    3) Cleansing Wash
    4) Hydrating Cream
    5) Fresh Breath

    I have approximatly 40-50 (3 ounce) bottles.
    Secondly, can you use bars of Dove soap, toilet paper rolls that are individually wrapped? I buy soap and toilet paper from SAM’s and I wasn’t sure if you could use these type of items?

    If I wanted to drop these items off tomorrow where would be the best place to drop them off? I am coming from Round Rock.

    Can you use cat food or just dog food?

    I am anxious to help in any way. I can also be contacted at 512-784-3202.
