Another secret that flight crew members have revealed is that they always use paper towels to press or use anything that is in the bathroom. There is fecal matter all over the bathroom including the button to flush the toilet. All the crew members make sure that they use a paper towel as this is one of the dirtiest places.

Imagine how many people use the bathroom during a flight and are not washing their hands. Next time that you find yourself in the bathroom inside a plane, be sure to use as many paper towels as possible, without being wasteful of course, because you don’t want to get sick from these germs.
