Passengers traveling within the United States* may bring through the security checkpoint travel-size toiletries (3-ounce container or smaller) that fit in one, quart-size, clear plastic, zip-top bag (see an example at right). The bag must be completely closed/sealed and must be submitted for inspection separately from other carry-on baggage. Examples of allowed toiletries include the following:

  • Lotion
  • Mouthwash
  • Perfume
  • Shampoo
  • Toothpaste
  • Eye care products
Additionally, travelers may bring onboard the aircraft duty free purchases, beverages and other items purchased in the secure area of the terminal. Exceptions To Liquid/Gel Carry-On Allowance (must be declared to TSA upon entering the checkpoint)
  • Breast milk, baby food, fruit juice (if a baby or small child is traveling)
  • Prescription medications
  • Essential non-prescription medicines, such as over-the-counter cough medicine
  • For diabetic passengers, liquid/ gel medications or juice to address their medical condition
The TSA web site also has extremely detailed info on every possible item you can think of (for instance you can still take a sword in your checked bags).  That link is   http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm The TSA also states that these restrictions are most likely going to stay the same for at least several months.
