The UK says it’s A-Ok to carry-on liquid in small amounts so the TSA has relaxed its ban on all matters not solid. (via Business Travel News Online)

After the hardcore crack down on everything from hand sanitizer to bottled water, travelers can now hydrate. But only in small quantities. Here’s the official word from the TSA:

* Travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic, zip-top bag.

* After clearing security, travelers can now bring beverages and other items purchased in the secure boarding area on-board aircraft.

At the checkpoint travelers will be asked to remove the zip-top bag of liquids and place it in a bin or on the conveyor belt. (Larger amounts of prescription liquid meds and baby formula must be declared at the checkpoint.)

What’s the magic number? 3 oz is the max allowed for liquids, gels, and aerosols in your carry-on for plane travel. So learn how to pack light. But you can travel with your water bra and gel insoles again, hooray!
