  1. I’ve never done it before but when I travel next it’ll be with my baby so I’m definitely busting out those wipes :p Who cares what people think? I’m not spending my entire visit home dealing with baby sniffles ?

  2. As a freak about to norovirus, I freaked a little yesterday when I read the article but to be honest. I always sanatize my hands after using the washroom & I was lucky enough to never get sick. I will definitely start to clean the tray though! Haha.

  7. Thanks so much for these great tips—I never thought about the trays and aisle seats—I used to love aisle seats because I hate sitting still that long, but this definitely changed my mind!

    1. No problem! I personally wouldn’t go as far as picking a different seat if you prefer the aisle but I would definitely wipe the armrest and probably more than once during the flight in case passer-bys touch it.

      1. Thanks—good idea! I often oscillate between aisle and window, though, so this made up my mind for me–window it is!
