Remember your last flight. A tiny compartment, no open windows, and a few dozen or even hundreds of passengers aboard the plane. Have you ever wondered how flight attendants manage to keep the toilet that fresh for several hours of flight? What they came up with is so simple and ingenious that you will definitely want to apply it at home.

So, how do they fight the unpleasant odor? Wash the toilet every few minutes? Yes, of course, the toilet gets washed, but definitely not that often.

Maybe the flight attendants use scented candles in the toilet? Their pleasant smell is pretty lasting. Obviously, that would be ludicrous. Any kind of open flame is strictly forbidden on the plane, just like aerosol air fresheners standard for ground facilities.

The thing that helps flight attendants keep toilets fresh and get rid of the odor is coffee. This is an old and proven trick. To clean the toilet, they use coffee grounds.

The thing is, coffee is a drink with a special and fairly persistent flavor. It is able to outsmell anything: from the toilet reeks to the unpleasant smell of bleach.

In case of emergency, flight attendants make a portion of strong coffee and simply pour it into the toilet. The unpleasant smell disappears in a matter of minutes.

This is really a lifesaver! It is especially useful when uninvited guests show up, and you don’t have time for a whole disinfection procedure. Make sure to share this lifehack with your friends!
