There are various hacks which can make travel more comfortable and/ or affordable.
Back in 2017, I wrote a post asking, Do You Know About The Secret Button On Your Airplane Seat? In 2016, I shared a Budget Travel Tip: Save Money, Visit the Hotel Fitness Center.
We bring Ziploc bags on trips for a variety of reasons. I used to place my phone in a ziploc bag and then hang it from the clip for the tray table. This made watching shows on my phone much more enjoyable.
Smarter Travel recently shared another excellent way to use large Ziploc bags and they feel you should always bring them on flights.
Seatback pockets on planes can be filled with all kinds of garbage (and germs). Smarter Travel says that “seatback pockets definitely don’t get a thorough cleaning in (if any) between flights“.
If you’re afraid to use a seatback pocket due to cleanliness, ST has a simple hack for you.
Smarter Travel says you should “pack the Ziploc bag with everything you’ll want access to during your flight, and put it in your carry-on. When you sit down, place the Ziploc bag with all your stuff inside the seat pocket. The bag will provide a barrier between your stuff and the inside of the seatback pocket, providing a sanitary storage spot in-flight.”
Once you land, empty the items from the Ziploc into your carry on and throw the plastic bag away.
