What is that one thing Meghan Markle will never travel without? It’s hand sanitiser.
The former ‘Suits’ star wrote on her now-closed website The Tig that hand sanitiser is something she packs in her hand luggage for every plane journey, without fail, reports the Sun.
The 36-year-old explained, “I’m no germophobe, but when I get on a plane I always use some quick hand wipes or a travel sanitiser spray to wipe it all down: that includes the little TV, the service tray, and all the buttons around your seat.”
The future Royal admitted that her habit can make her look a bit odd to her fellow passengers, “but at the end of the flight, you’ll be the one whistling Dixie with nary a sniffle”.
The report further says that Markle’s point can be justified as studies show that more than one in five people who travel on planes suffer from a cold or the flu after the flight.
A research by Skyscanner says that the tray table is the dirtiest place on a plane, followed by the overhead air vent, the toilet flush button and the seatbelt buckle.
She further said, “Always travel with a high strain probiotic, and hydrate like you’re dying of thirst – because even if you’re not, for your body – the thirst is real.”
“This dynamic duo of probiotics and agua will keep your gut health in check and honestly stave off jet lag if you’re globetrotting on your travels.”
