2. Toothpaste Tablets
Imagine getting off an 8 hour flight and leaving with a (literal) bad taste in your mouth.  I mean, sure, some planes do provide small tubes of toothpaste but is that really enough to beat the stink?
Credit: The Awesomer These toothpaste tablets are perfect for those long flights, an absolute lifesaver to be honest.  Just pop some in your mouth, chew a little and you’re good to go! The thought of chewing your toothpaste is a little bizarre, but hey, it’s a great alternative?

Ever had that awkward moment when you’ve accidentally nodded off and your head ends up on the shoulder of an unsuspecting (and bewildered) stranger? Yup… Not your greatest moment.
