One of the most germ-packed areas for many of us revolves around travel, especially during peak periods like the holidays or spring break. As a father of 3 boys, I can’t help but think about the germs, especially on planes. Germs are lingering in overhead bins, the seatback pockets, and the arm rests. I am quite sure any of you who have recently traveled by air, rail or road have had at least one close (and unpleasant) encounter with germs. While your seat, tray table and the seatback pocket may look clean enough, don’t be deceived! These are probably the most germ-filled spaces you’ll experience on your entire journey.

#4 – The seat belt buckle
#3 – The bathroom toilet flusher handle
#2 – Air vents above the seats
#1 – Tray tables
Here are a few favorite things that I take along on all my flights. I think you’ll love them too:
I wish you all safe travels in the future. I also hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2016.
