I’m an ex-flight attendant and I swear by a very clever travel item that costs just £3.20 | The Sun


A FORMER flight attendant has revealed some of the most important items he always packs in his hand luggage on long-haul flights.

One of his go-two items won't break the bank either, starting from just £3.20.

Kentrell Charles worked as a flight attendant for American Airlines for 23 years, before retiring.

One of the items he swears by? Soap sheets.

He explained on Travel Awaits: "Bringing along some toiletries in your carry-on bag will help keep you feeling fresh even if your flight is delayed or your bags get lost.

"I pack soap sheets, which dissolve in water and lather like regular soap and a washcloth."

Soap sheets can be better than hand sanitiser as they require you to wash your hands using water, meaning you wash off more bacteria.

The pieces of paper foam up using water, with the soap infused into them with fragrances such as lavender and jasmine, with the paperthen dissolving.

Not only that, but they don't take up much space and they don't count as a liquid – so don't worry about the 100ml liquid restrictions.

They cost as little as £3.20 on Amazon for a pack of 50, so will last you a while.

Reviews on Amazon sung their praises too – one woman wrote: "They do clean through oil, poop and mud with easy and give a satisfactory foam. Honestly, worth the money if you have children!"

Another commented: "Ideal for travel. Great little box."

Some even said they make great stocking fillers – just in time for Christmas.

Kentrell revealed some of his other top items to always pack too, including a pen or pencil for entry forms, along with snacks, medication and a change of clothes.
