I am not a germaphobe, but totally have germaphobic tendencies. I wash my hands often and do the whole papertowel on the doorknob thing and carry hand sanitizer with me at all times. I fly on planes fairly often and try not to think about all of the billions of germs floating around up there and haven’t gone so crazy that I have started using Airborne, but I might…I would really like to use this air purification filter…my fellow passengers on the last few flights have been a little less than clean (pretty funky actually) and I really think this would have helped make me feel a little better about their floating germs.
