Boeing's self-cleaning lavatory kills germs with UV light after each use.By Samantha Crook | March 4, 2016
Researchers are designing an airplane bathroom that eliminates 99.99 percent of germs and, with it, your fear of using the bathroom on a flight.
Boeing designed the restroom to clean itself within 3 seconds using UV light every time someone leaves the lavatory. The company says it will not only clean the surfaces, but it'll also help eliminate odors.
"Every virus, every bacteria, and it literally makes them explode," a researcher for Boeing said.
