Are you unsure if you’re allowed to bring aerosols or deodorant on a plane? It all comes down to personal preference. All of the numerous limits on what you may and cannot bring in your carry-on and checked baggage can be confusing. On the other side of the coin, here is a guide to clarify Can you bring aerosol on a plane or not.
Is it possible to transport aerosols in a carry-on bag?
Deodorant, hairspray, shaving cream, hair mousse, perfume, sunscreen, and a slew of other products in aerosol form are all possibilities. If you’re flying with aerosols, you’ll need to follow TSA liquids restrictions because they contain liquid.
As a reminder, liquids in carry-on bags must be contained in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 ml) according to TSA regulations. No matter how empty a large container is, it is still against the law to use it.
A clear quart-sized (liter-sized) zip-top bag with a zipper closure must also hold all liquid containers. There can only be one liquids bag in the carry-on luggage of each traveller at any one time.
It’s also possible to buy whipped cream and cheese in aerosol form. If you wish to bring these along, you’ll need a can that weighs no more than 3.4 ounces.
Is it okay to fly with a bottle of hairspray in your carry-on?
If you want to appear your best in your travel photos, you may want to pack hairspray with you. In contrast, hairspray is a liquid and will be treated as such by the TSA.
Carry-on hairspray must be in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces, and must fit in your liquids bag if you’re flying.
Make sure your hairspray container is no larger than 18 ounces if you plan to bring it on your trip in checked luggage (16 fluid ounces).
Remember that the total amount of aerosol goods that you can bring in checked luggage must not exceed 70 ounces; this includes hairspray (68 fluid ounces).
In order to comply with TSA liquid restrictions for carry-on luggage and airline aerosol limits for checked bags, spray deodorants and aerosol deodorants are considered liquids.
Deodorant in the form of a roll-on is a little more esoteric. Because it is not a liquid, solid deodorant can be taken with you wherever you go.
A few deodorants that come in rolls are liquids. The gel that is squeezed through slots in the container’s lid is one type you’ve heard of. If your gel weighs 3.4 ounces or less and fits in the airline-provided liquids bag, you can bring it on board in your carry-on luggage.
