Making bed on Shabbos

Question:

When sleeping as a guest in someone’s house on Shabbos, and one will not be returning after Shabbos (one is only sleeping there at night), may he make the bed on Shabbos as one does not wish to leave the bed a mess due to derech eretz?

Answer:

Yes, he may make the bed and it isn’t considered preparing for after Shabbos, because he wants the room to look neat on Shabbos itself for his host. He surely isn’t making the bed for after Shabbos, because he isn’t even going to be using it then, and the linens will be taken off.
