Airport Regulations
All gels, liquids, and aerosols must be in containers of three ounces or less and put into a single, quart-size, clear plastic zip-top bag. If you have any meds or items that do not fit in the quart-size bag, you must show it to security officers at the checkpoint. For more info, go to TSA.gov.

Leak Prevention
Liquids or gels tend to leak due to changing air pressure and temperature. Try filling a container a little more than 3/4 full to limit air space, or squeeze the container while screwing on a cap; you’ll give the contents in the container room to spread out. You should put all containers in plastic bags just in case. Shop online for appropriately sized, leak-free bottles.
