Can You Bring Deodorant on A Plane?
Yes, you can bring deodorant on a plane. It is recommended to go with deodorants that are considered solid by the TSA rather than those that are considered liquid. ‘Solid’ deodorants like air, or stick deodorants, are legally allowed on a plane, either in your checked or carry-on baggage. While ‘liquid’ deodorants like gels, creams, or pastes will be required to be in containers less than 3.04 OZ/100 ml and put in a clear quart-sized bag in either your carry-on or checked baggage. This is the general rule set by the TSA for liquids on the plane.
This rule also applies to aerosol deodorants, however, for carrying an aerosol deodorant in your checked baggage, the restriction is 18 OZ or 500 ml per bottle. If your deodorant is liquid or aerosol and does not comply with the rules mentioned above, then it will have to be thrown out at the airport.
Can You Bring Perfume on A Plane?
Yes, you can bring perfume on a plane. However, perfume is liquid and is subject to the TSA 3-1-1 rule. This means that, if you are carrying perfume or cologne in your carry-on bag, it has to be in a container less than 3.04 OZ/100 ml and placed in a clear quart-sized bag. If you’re carrying the perfume in your checked baggage, then there is no size or quantity limit.
You should note that there is such a thing as ‘too much perfume’ when flying internationally. With an international flight, if the number of perfumes you are carrying does not seem to be intended for personal use, you will be asked to pay a duty tax. This does not apply to domestic flights.
One way to go around the TSA 3-11 rule is to purchase duty-free perfumes from a duty-free shop within the airport. Duty-free presumes are allowed in your carry-on bag even when they are larger than 3.04 OZ as long as they are securely packed in tamper-evident bags by the retailer and you have the receipt to show that the purchase was made in the previous 48 hours.
What Is Not Allowed in A Carry-On Bag?
Items like ammunition, liquids over 3.04 OZ, sharp objects, and sporting equipment are not allowed in a carry-on bag. Here are some more items that are not allowed in a carry-on bag:
- Flammable items
- Aerosol insecticide
- Alcohol over 70%
- Bang snaps
- Bear bangers
- Bear sprays
- Bloating caps
- Bowling pins
- Cast Iron cookware
- Chlorine for pools
- Cooking spray
- Cutting boards
- Night sticks
- Shocking devices
- Tactical pen
- Tear gas
- Throwing stars
- Vehicle airbags
Knowing what to and not to carry along will help so you don’t get delayed at the airport and have your stuff thrown away.
Is Deodorant Considered A Liquid When Flying?
Deodorant can be considered a liquid when flying if it is in liquid, gel, cream, or paste form and this makes it fall under the TSA 3-1-1 rule for liquids. Aerosol or spray deodorants also fall under this rule.
Does Gel Deodorant Count as A Liquid When Flying?
Yes, gel counts as a liquid when flying and is therefore required to be in a container not more than 3-04 OZ. 100 ml and placed in a quart-sized bag in your carry-on bag. There is no size or quantity limit when it is placed in your checked baggage.
Can you bring deodorant on a plane? Yes, but with some conditions. It is prudent to go through this article and do some more research to find out more travel regulations that relate to things you can and cannot bring on a plane.
