One of the most frequently asked questions I answer is what the liquid requirements are when traveling with a carry-on bag only.
The airlines will allow one 1-quart baggie per person for all liquids. When you’re not checking a bag, you need to be extra careful with the liquids chosen.
Note: If I am checking a bag, I put all liquids in my checked bag. The liquids I leave in my purse or small backpack are: lip gloss, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, and peppermint essential oil (I use this for motion sickness!)
All of the liquids must fit inside the 1-quart baggie and be 3oz or less.
Here are the items I pack in my 1-quart baggie:
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Body lotion
- Sunscreen (two variations)
- Lip gloss
- Hand Sanitizer
- Peppermint essential oil
- Travel-size perfume
Tip: bar soap is not considered a liquid – double bag this and put it inside one of your shoes to save on space!
