Travel Tip of the Day: Get a Scough

ScoughGet a Scough
Here’s a brilliant idea that’s just in time for the Ebola panic. Most travelers don’t want to wear a silly-looking surgeon’s mask to stay healthy or keep their germs in on the plane. But thanks to a new scarf that has built-in protection (carbon filter), they don’t have to. With the Scough, you can travel at ease while still looking stylish. Prices start at $49.

Good to know: Each filter lasts three months (without washing). Replacement filters cost $15 for one or $30 for three.

FYI: This tip was once a popular Travel Product of the Week post.

  1. You can’t be serious Mr. Jet. Profiting by scare-mongering. Do you not know how Ebola is transmitted?

    The victims need 5000 health care workers and you promote useless designer protection.

    I hope all the money raised is going to help the needy, not company preying on the fashion-starved traveller who isn’t going anywhere close to the outbreak. And perhaps may not even know where the afflicted countries are located.

    How shameful!

    • FYI: I don’t make a penny off of this

      • Regardless of whether or not you’re making any money from sales of the Scough, you still wrote this as your lead-in sentence:
        “Get a Scough Here’s a brilliant idea that’s just in time for the Ebola panic.”
        As we all should know by now, neither a Scough nor a face mask will provide protection from Ebola.
