  • PlaneSheets—Plane seats experience a lot of wear and tear and many times it's difficult to move past their unexplainable stains and dingy appearance. PlaneSheets allow you to experience "clean flying" by putting a clean sheet in between you and the thousands of other travelers who have sat in that seat. Sold in a washable and disposable version, PlaneSheets puts the "personal" back into personal travel.
  • Scrubba Wash Bag—The Scrubba Wash Bag is perfect for washing clothes on the go. It's proven to be twice as effective as hand washing: Travelers simply fill the bag with water and a cleaning agent, roll and clip the bag, open and squeeze to expel air, rub against the internal washboard, and rinse.
