Next time you’re packing your carry-on for a flight, throw a gallon-sized Ziploc bag in there to make your trip a little more comfortable. As you know, airplane seatback pockets are rarely being cleaned between flights, making them one of the dirtiest places you’ll encounter during your trip. We’ve seen people put used tissues, diapers, food leftover, and much more in there.

If you still need a place to store your stuff and wish to avoid the germs in the seatback pockets, pack a large Ziploc bag in your carry-on and use it to keep your things without having to touch these pockets.

When the flight is over, empty your stuff into your carry-on and toss the Ziploc bag.

Suppose you’re looking for a more eco-friendly solution. In that case, you can purchase reusable bags and organizers specifically designed for airplane seatbacks. Also available are more advanced Airplane Pockets that create whole new storage and hygiene for your flight. Just be sure to wash them after using.

Final Thoughts

Remember to pack extra bags for the follow-on flight or the return flights.
