Why are the tray tables so dirty?
Bring your own cleaning wipes for your tray tables, as they’re only cleaned once a day typically – and that’s only overnight, according to Insider. During flights, food is spilled, drool is drooled, and dirty diapers are changed on those tray tables. Often, they’re dirtier than toilet seats, so consider this fair warning. But it’s super easy to clean them: bring your own wipe with you. One swipe should be good (while you’re at it, you may want to wipe down your seat and armrest too, for good measure).
