TSA liquid rules

TSA liquid rules may initially seem confusing and intimidating. But, really, they’re quite simple! We’ve gathered all the basic TSA liquid rules you should know before departing for your next vacation.

Everything You Should Know About TSA Liquid Rules

As avid travelers ourselves, we know how important it is to be able to utilize your own soaps and shampoos while on vacation. So, let’s dive right into the TSA liquid rules.

Firstly, you are permitted to bring up to 3.4 ounces of liquid, or 100 milliliters, per item in your carry-on. These include liquids, gels, creams, and pastes.

To simplify the TSA screening process, be sure to pack all of your liquids in a separate, clear bag. Doing so will also protect the clothing and other items in your carry-on luggage.

You’re welcome to use liquid containers larger than 3.4 ounces, but they can only contain 3.4 ounces of liquid. These larger containers must be packed in your checked luggage.

Some exemptions to these rules include medication and nourishments for infants and young children. 

Most travel containers or travel-sized products already meet the 3.4-ounce requirement. However, we always recommend you double-check that you’re complying with TSA liquid rules before heading to the airport.
