I never sit on a toilet seat. I hoover over it when using the jacks.
Travelling by air is another disgusting thing.
And I speak from experience as I have worked as a flight attendant in the past.
Very rarely, traytables get cleaned on aircrafts. And if they get cleaned, then the same wipe is used for the whole aircraft. As aircraft cleaners start from the front and the back of the aircraft and work towards the middle, they first clean the toilets in the front and in the back and often use the same wipe they used to clean the toilet for cleaning the traytables.
Armrests, seatbuckles and seatpockets never get cleaned.
On shorter flights, few airlines give meals nowadays so many passengers buy a sándwich at the airport or take one from home but during take off, they stick it in the seatpocket. ...without realising it that loads of dirty nappies, used paper napkins full of snot and vomit bags have been stuck in there before.
Many people take their shoes of during the flight. You don't want to know what's all living in aircraft carpets. Same with cloth aircraft seats. It would be better to put hard plastic seats like the ones on most buses in Lima on aircrafts because they are cleaner.
