Wash Your Hands!
I’ve talked about the importance of washing your hands in an airplane bathroom, but I’ve never advised you flat-out to make sure you always keep your hands clean when you travel (and at home). I was reminded why the other day while traveling—I can’t remember where—by a bathroom sign (above), which has some great tips on it (like how you should use warm water and rub for 20 seconds).
Again, it seems like common sense but you’d be shocked to learn how many men I see walk out of airplane restrooms (including stalls) and not wash their hands! It’s disgusting and one reason why I prefer to fist-bumping people to shaking hands.

I used to work as a hostess in a restaurant and I finally convinced out manager to get rid og the free, unwrapped mints for obvious reasons. I also hate to use straws, stir sticks and cutlery from any easily-accessible location. A small case with eating utensils has become part of my daily “baggage”.
