To buy or not to buy...supplies ahead of time

We are renting a condo for our upcoming stay in Florida. We rented a townhouse last time we went to FL and there were a few starter items in it, but we had brought some laundry detergent and dish soap with us.

I'm wondering, if a previous renter buys something and leaves it, does the cleaning company remove it or do they generally leave it there for the next guest?

I'm trying to decide whether I should bring supplies again or just wait and see how much is in the condo when we get there.

Buy what you need. There may be some items like extra dish washer soap or paper towles. But I wouldnt want to use left over bottle ketchup or something.

I would expect nothing to be left over from the previous renter. I am not sure what happens to items that are left but I know that in all my years of traveling, I have never seen items left from a previous renter. The management company might leave a trial size dish soap, a few packets of dishwasher soap, paper towels and toilet paper but that is about it. Most certainly bring your own supplies - better to be on safe side... I would also call the management company and ask about what is provided.

I'd either bring it or make a stop at Super Target/Walmart. We used to leave items like laundry soap, paper towels, etc. for the next renters rather than take it home but found out that it's often removed by the cleaning people.
