Can I Use Fabric Headboards in My Short-Term Rental? (Episode 368)

Don’t Forget This ONE Tool for Cleaning STR Headboards

Welcome back to the Hosting Hotline! This is an Ask Me Anything where each week we’ll answer your questions on Airbnb, STRs, real estate, and everything in between.

Melissa asks:

I am going to be a new host, and I have a question about bed frames and headboards. I have a couple headboards that are upholstered. What are your thoughts about using those and cleaning those instead of buying new headboards that are wood or washable? I would love to know because it could save me a lot of money if I can use the headboards that I have now.
