Current TSA Rules:You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to 3.4 oz (100 ML) or less per item. Placing these items in the small bag separate from your carry-on baggage facilitates the screening process. Pack items larger than 3.4 oz or 100 ML in checked baggage. Any liquid, aerosol, gel, cream or paste that alarms during screening will require additional screening.
