As I see it the Plane Clean Air Filter will serve two purposes. First, you simply mount it to the overhead air nozzle above your seat with an included adhesive gasket and the FDA-certified filter will then remove 99.5% of all allergens, bacteria and viruses from the plane’s air stream. It also supposedly creates a protective curtain of air around you blocking other unwanted airborne pests from getting through. After your flight the Plane Clean Filter can be easily removed without leaving any sticky residue on the nozzle.
Secondly, given we live in a time where crude LED-based facsimiles of cartoon characters can bring cities to a stop there’s no doubt that seeing one of these filters attached to a plane’s air nozzle will serve to create some level of hysteria aboard your flight. Of course you can point out the Plane Clean does meet FAA certification requirements but I don’t think that will save you the embarrassment of being removed from the plane in handcuffs.
The Plane Clean Air Filter is currently available from Target for only $19.99.
