Make Airplane Bathrooms Less Disgusting By Packing This Essential

By Mina Elwell


According to one former flight attendant interviewed by Sanctuary Bathrooms, wearing a mask when using the bathroom during flights could help you avoid picking up a virus.
"Every time you go to the bathroom [...] you could also be breathing the potential airborne fecal particles after toilet flushing," said the flight attendant.
A 2020 study published in Physics of Fluids concluded that you could benefit from wearing a mask in any public bathroom since toilets release dirty water droplets when they flush.
In addition to wearing a mask, you should always wash your hands, and if you touch a surface in the airplane bathroom, use hand sanitizer afterward.
