Deodorant

Deodorant regularly shows up in our top 10 list of search keywords that brought people to our blog. Why wouldn’t it? Many use it and you definitely need it when you travel. There have been times that I’ve been on a hot stuffy plane where the person next to me needed a double dose of it! In fact, one commenter in the early days of the blog asked if we could require passengers to put their BO in quart sized baggies prior to boarding the aircraft.

So… you might be wondering what types of deodorant have to go in the baggies, and what types don’t.

Or, you always have the option of placing deodorant in your checked baggage if you’re checking a bag.

Now, if you’re squared away but still curious as to why you have to do this, take a look at this post.

See you next Tuesday with more travel tips!
