TravelKleen's founder has traveled extensively domestically and internationally for a high-tech manufacturing company. Throughout the years, it became clear that (as part of the airline and rail industry's cost cutting endeavors) that the passenger seats (from the cleanliness standpoint) were not being maintained. In fact, the seats had become progressively filthier. Hair oils, food stains, perspirations were just some of the examples of - seat filth. Theater seats are even worse!

Sitting for hours on a dirty, smelly seat could no longer be tolerated. There was a need for a simple, inexpensive way for someone to travel or to enjoy a movie in a relaxed, fresh and hygienic way. Thus, TravelKleen's headrest was created to meet a very important and real need - for everyone.
