Okay, since i travels quite often – and most of time when i travel using plane, i try and try not to use the baggage (i hate the line when the baggage comes out from the plane – and also hate the fact that i missed my baggage many times THEN i have to wait for it all over again)
Whenever – wherever i travels, i try to do the packing trick to fit all my stuff in one backpack.
Kinda tricky when it comes to the liquid stuffs that I HAVE to bring along with me. As there are restrictions on the amount you can take in the cabin – maximum 100ml of them, i have to rethink which item that i really really need and which item that i can easily buy in my destination place.
These are some items that is consider liquids (so that you know for sure, to avoid the hassle when checking-in):
- ALL drinks. Yes, it’s including water, soup and syrups
- Cosmetics & toiletries. Including creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, mascara and lipsticks
- Sprays. Including shaving foam, hairspray and spray deodorants
- Pastes, including toothpaste
- Gels, including hair and shower gel
- Contact lens solution & any other solutions and items of similar characteristic.
NOW, after picking liquid stuff that i really need in cabin, the trick is:
- Put them inside a small containers (sometimes i use eye contacts container) – make sure it’s not more than 100ml
- The containers must be carried in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre and measures approximately 20cm x 20cm
- contents must fit inside the transparent bag so it can be sealed
- the transparent bag must not be knotted or tied at the top
- each passenger can carry only one of these bags
- the bag must be presented for examination at the airport security point
Important notes: Containers larger than 100ml (excluding essential medicines) will not be allowed through the security point even if they are only part full.
So yeah, remove it to the smaller container just to be safe.
