Germ freak gift list was inspired by this post that you simply must read to know what goes on behind the scenes of cleaning the cabin after you are done flying. If you read this post, you will see why compiled this list of germ-killing goodies.
In short, you should be a germ freak for the reasons stated above, in this post, so go and read it!
Even if one is not a germ freak, it is still nice to have some of the items around. If you are looking to give someone a gift, why not set up a themed gift box.( I love those!) They will remember you every time they clean something, that is for sure! Anyhow, let me know if this list calls close to the germ-free home. 😉
Please note that this post contains some affiliate links. By the way, you don’t have to get those and can make your germ-fighting goody box. However, if you use any of the links in this post, I might get a small compensation at no cost to you.
Here are the ten items that are going to ensure your travel is as clean as possible.
Luggage wrap case
I love those not only because of the instant barrier to anything that flies into it, and of course the look, but also it makes your luggage stand out on that forever line of black and navy luggage cases anywhere you go. Also, I have no idea what they are doing behind the scene there, but my luggage always comes rubbed the wrong way. Meaning there are scratches, cuts, and bends everywhere.
These are pretty basic. However, I use them for not only cleaning everything around me on the plane but when we go on walks, door nobs, remote controls and other stuff that I did not pay attention to the pre-baby era. I have found perfect ones here. If I am on the go, I just put them into a resealable plastic bag to avoid the bulkiness of that box.
Electronics cleaning brush
Oh! Now we are coming to the good stuff! I bet you did not think of that before! OXO Good Grip. Your keyboard: the bane of your existence. It’s full of grime, oil and –especially — crumbs. Now, you can fight back. It was stated in the comments that it is also pretty good with camera equipment. So win/win for the double duty!
Cost: $5.99. Talk about money well spent.
A set of Slippers and socks that can be (and should be) thrown out.
“Please do not walk on the floor without shoes. Someone might have puked there….ewwww.”- from my must read post.
In this case, any old socks or disposable, cotton, eco-friendly slippers will work fine. Scout your nearest Dollar store for some cheap goodness.
A germ block
A toilet kit
A compact kit of all the things you require when nature screams and you are “dying” to use a Starbucks bathroom.
A bottle that not only filters your water but also removes 99.9999% of viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens.
What you should also know is that: “GRAYL’s Ultralight Purifier bottle is very effective against pathogens that can make you sick (virus, bacteria, and protozoa) and many chemicals and heavy metals (lead, chlorine, arsenic, etc.). However, fluoride is not significantly removed with our Purifier – only reducing it by about 25%“.
It is designed to treat a fresh water supply. For a saltwater from ocean water or brackish water sources, you’d need a desalinization filter.
It is perfect for trekking, hiking, South East Asia living and when you are just not sure.
A unique set of flatware
The best germ-killing gift one can give to herself is visiting the travel clinic and doing all the necessary shots prescribed by a doctor.
A touchscreen cleaner for your electronics
It erases unsightly smudges from your precious devices which is a must. It is like a one-stop shop for cleaning all of my devices.
It is perfect for anyone who is grossed out by hotel linens.
A Harry Potter wand (just kidding)
Another present, investment, peace of mind and sanity guaranty is that having a diarrhea vaccine which is taken orally.
“This medication belongs to the class of medications called vaccines. It is used to help prevent travellers’ diarrhea caused by enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) and cholera in adults and children 2 years of age and older. It is recommended for people travelling to areas with a high risk of cholera or travellers’ diarrhea.” Dukoral – Uses, Side Effects, Interactions – MedBroadcast.com
