Never walk around barefoot – Everything from vomit to blood has been on that carpet, so always wear shoes to avoid the germ-infested floors.

Don’t sit down your entire flight – It is possible for you to get deep vein thrombosis on an airplane, so walk around for a few minutes every now and again to prevent it.

Keep the air vent on – If you’re getting chilly, put on a jacket. The air vent above your seat helps to blow away any airborne germs before they enter your space.

Don’t eat food that’s touched the tray table – That tray table definitely does now get sterilized between flights, so unless you have your own placemat say goodbye to that pretzel that fell on the tray and not your plate.

Avoid using the blankets – Wanna know what other item doesn’t get cleaned between flights? The blankets and pillows you use! Unless you want to be subjected to germs and lice, never use these.

Don’t forget to drink water – Airplane cabins are known for their low humidity, so try to drink as much water as you can. Note: NEVER drink the water out the tap on the plane; it has been tested to be crawling with bacteria!

Never touch the flush button – The toilet is a major germ hangout. Your best bet would be to wash your hands and then use a paper towel to press the flush button and open the door.

Avoid sleeping against the window – You’re not the only one who has sat in that seat, who knows who else has sneezed and coughed against that window.

Don’t add the burden of getting sick to your vacation, use these steps and avoid the germs and stay comfortable!
