Can You Bring Deodorant on a Plane? Learn About TSA Guidelines

Can you bring deodorant on a plane? Fortunately, you can carry this important hygiene product, but there are restrictions. Find out what types you can fly with.

When you’re traveling, you understandably want to bring all your toiletries, but are deodorant and antiperspirant allowed? The TSA has implemented many restrictions for carry-on and checked baggage items, with the possibility of more in the future. It can get confusing about what you are and aren’t allowed to bring. Here, we break through the red tape to answer the basic question: can you bring deodorant on a plane?

 
Can You Bring Deodorant and Antiperspirant on a Plane?

The short answer is yes—but with restrictions. It’s important to know what is and isn’t allowed because TSA agents will make you dispose of items that don’t meet the guidelines. There’s nothing more embarrassing and inconvenient than having to toss your favorite deodorant while other passengers watch. To avoid this experience, make sure you’re reviewing the right instructions for your type of antiperspirant or deodorant.

 
Types of Deodorant and Antiperspirant

Deodorants and antiperspirants come in many different forms, some of which are easier to travel with than others. For example, classic stick deodorant doesn’t have any limitations, so you’re free to pack whatever size you want.

Liquids and semi-liquids, on the other hand, are subject to restrictions. This includes many of the popular alternatives to stick deodorant:

  1. Roll-On Deodorants and Antiperspirants

  2. Deodorant Paste

  3. Deodorant Cream

  4. Liquid Deodorant

  5. Gel Deodorant

  6. Spray Deodorant

 
Deodorant and Antiperspirant Sizes

The TSA prohibits containers with more than 3.4 ounces of liquid in carry-on luggage, so if you have a liquid or semi-liquid antiperspirant, be sure to check the quantity on the container. For example, many stick deodorants and antiperspirants come in sizes under 3.4 ounces, so it’s fine to bring in your carry-on bag. However, roll-ons tend to be larger, meaning they must be packed in checked luggage.

 
Travel Options

Want to bring your favorite brand, but it’s too big for a carry-on? Most companies sell travel-size options for their customers’ convenience. For example, you can get a Ban® Mini Roll-On in 1.5 ounces.

 
What Is the TSA’s 3-1-1 Rule for Flying?

To help travelers remember limitations, the TSA has released a rule it calls 3-1-1. Each number corresponds to one of the guidelines for flying with liquids and semi-liquids.

3: 3 Ounces
You can only bring 3.4 ounces or less of a particular substance in your carry-on luggage. Any product bigger than that needs to be stored in checked baggage.

1: One Baggie
You may carry more than one substance that falls under the 3-1-1 rule, but they must all be in one baggie. The baggie must be clear, zip closed, and can’t be larger than one quart.

1: One Per Passenger
Each passenger may only have one of these baggies. Even if you bring on more than one carry-on item, you can only have one clear, quart-sized plastic baggie.

 
Key Takeaways

  1. You can bring your deodorant on a plane as long as you adhere to the specific guidelines set by the TSA.

  2. If your favorite antiperspirant is too big for carry-on, you can either pack it in checked luggage or get a smaller, travel-friendly version.

  3. Ban® Roll On Minis are travel compliant and easy to store, making them a great option if you need to fly.
