Travel toiletries: the rules
Next time you visit the airport, grab a few of the sealable plastic bags so that you can pack your toiletries at home and make sure they all fit in before you leave
2. Carry all liquids in one, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag that's up to 20cm x 20cm (8in x 8in) with a total capacity of up to a litre
Keep your plastic bag of liquids at the top of your carry-on bag, as you'll need to put these through the airport security screening separately
3. You need to be able to completely close the bag and fit it in your hand baggage
Once you are through security you can buy duty-free liquids from the airport and onboard the plane, as long as they've been sealed at the point of purchase
