Tip 81: Avoiding Germs on Airplanes

As a frequent passenger on red-eye flights over the holiday season, I cringe as I try to fall asleep listening to a cacophony of sneezes and coughs. I walked onto the plane healthy and I’d like to walk off healthy in 6 hours, thank you very much!

To cut down on the germs surrounding you, pack small anti-bacterial hand sanitizer wipes with you. As soon as you get seated on the plane, wipe down the armrests, the table tray and any buttons used to control the entertainment system.
