Tips for Packing Your TSA Approved Carry On Quart Size For Carrying Liquids So You Get Through TSA With No Issues

When packing, you may need to include liquid toiletries in your carry-on luggage. But there are important TSA rules you’ll need to follow – starting with a carry-on quart-size bag.

Air travelers are permitted to bring liquids, gels, aerosols, creams, and pastes in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) in their carry-ons. These must fit in a quart siz

Unless you are going through the TSA precheck line, this bag will need to be placed separately on the airport security belt during the TSA screening process.

If you have larger amounts of liquid (or larger containers), you can place these in your checked baggage.

You don’t need to go out and purchase a separate, expensive toiletry bag if you don’t want to. Even a quart-sized plastic bag is okay 

Note that European travel guidelines are especially strict. Bags typically have to be fully clear, and they are strict on size. Check with the specific airport/country for more details.

Many toiletries you’ll use for travel, like moisturizer, sunscreen, hair gel, liquid foundation, hand sanitizer, body wash, toothpaste, face wash, contact solution, etc, fall under this rule.

Pharmacies, grocery stores, and mass merchandisers typically have a trial size section with products just the right size.
