Clean Hands, Germy Bathroom
Airplane lavatories are full of germs (as discussed in yesterday’s tip), so when I use one (or any public restroom, for that matter) I will open the door when I’m done washing my hands using a paper towel or my shirt sleeve. Howard Hughes? Maybe. Germ free? Definitely.

Yes, I am the “original germ-o-phobe” and I never touch anything in a public toilet. I use a paper towel to open the stall door, use a seat liner, never touch the door latch without covering my hands and same with the sink faucets. And, remember I have not had a COLD in 30 years. I even told a woman yesterday to “wash he hands” when she was leaving without doing so (in the ladies’ room). She gave me a dirty look.
