What's the Deal With: Traveling With Liquids

What's the Deal With: Traveling With Liquids

If you're planning on flying somewhere this Thanksgiving, don't let all the Transportation Security Agency's strict rules make you crazy. Here's the basic gist:

  • On September 26th, the ban on liquids, gels, and aerosols was changed. Now you can carry on your toiletries, packed in a quart-size Ziploc baggie, one bag per person.
  • Each individual item has to be less than 3 oz, and fit easily in the closed bag.
  • Larger containers that are half-full or toothpaste tubes rolled up are not allowed.
  • If you have too many toiletries to fit in the small baggie, you're going to have to check it in your suitcase (bummer).
  • Of course, if you have a medical condition or a baby, there are no limits on amounts of liquids or prescription drugs for you. Just make sure you speak with the security people about it.
  • You're only allowed to bring beverages purchased near your gate after you pass through security.

Fit's Tips: People = Germs. It's an unfortunate truth. Get yourself a travel size hand sanitizer and keep it in your purse to de-germ at every possible moment - just make sure it's 3 oz or less.

i just got this lavender sanitizer from whole foods and i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! but what I hate is the new airlines rules, ugh the lines are so ridiculous at security... flying is such a pain now.

those hand sanitizers are so freakin nasty. they lead to stronger, meaner germs since they kill only 98% or 99% of germs. the remaining two percent just evolve. i think people just need to quit being so paranoid and realize the world isn't going to kill them.
