Local Residents Invent Sanitary Tray Table Covers For A Germ-Free Flight

Sep 19, 2011 08:24PM ● Published by Erin Frisch

While airline meals may be a thing of the past, many carriers still offer a snack or a beverage. Today’s busy flight schedules often see planes leaving the gate within minutes of pulling in with the last load of passengers, which means there’s no time for cleaning. If eating from a tray others (who knows how many?) have already used makes your stomach do flip-flops, a new product may put your mind—and your tummy—at ease.

TrayGuard, introduced by Jason Drebitko of Woodstock and Alexys Wilbur of Cornish, is a cover made from antimicrobial fabric that simply slips over the airline tray table in front of you. The covers retail for less than $10 and are available locally at Woodstock Pharmacy and in Hanover at Eastman’s Pharmacy. Utilizing local and regional vendors is important to Upper Valley residents Drebitko and Wilbur: the covers are being manufactured in Johnson, Vermont, with fabric made in Hampton, New Hampshire.
