Hello there 🙂
I do not know you, but I've probably seen a few too many of these news segments about the most polluted places on an airplane and looked a little too closely at those spots on the seats of chairs in airport waiting areas. When it comes to air travel, ignorance is truly bliss, but since it's too late for me, I've resigned myself to being a bit of an airport germ cell.
Since I can not (and would) like to travel, my solution is to pack a lot of purell and wear items that help me avoid the dreaded contact with the skin on the germs. Here are seven points I would best avoid if I spend a day at the airport and on planes. If you have read too many stories about airport contamination, read on and think about your own travel plans for the future. (Also, buy the seven types of items I wear instead.)
When I spend hours in an airplane, the last thing I want is for my legs to touch airport seats of any material. If I have to wear something on the shorter side, I always wear a trench coat or a long cardigan or something similar that protects my skin.
Even though strappy sandals are great when I reach my goal, I do not want to leave my feet open when I'm struggling with floors in the airport bathroom, for example. Instead, something is just as comfortable, but with more coverage my suggestion.
I've learned the hard way that it's almost impossible to avoid something with wide or swollen sleeves washing hands (and basically anything else you encounter) running across the airport's large sinks. Now I stay with short sleeves and shirts that sit at the wrists.
When I try to feel as comfortable as possible on a long-haul flight I want to sleep in, I'll wear a sweatshirt nine times out of ten. And instead of letting my hair touch the backrest, I choose a hoodie.
It drives me crazy when I wear something that strikes the ground and takes everything with me (which is not ideal, especially at an airport). Luckily, there is a simple solution: wear something shorter.
I'm glad that wearing socks is a trend with everything and everyone, because if you've ever walked into apartments to the airport, you'll need to undress for safety and only have your bare feet to carry you through the scanners. You will never want to make that mistake again.
When I wear a cropped top to the airport, I definitely wear jeans that are high enough to cover any exposed skin that might come in contact with the backrest. Even better? A shirt that I can stick to.
Next, a flight attendant determines what he should not wear due to airport security.
