Get More Liquids Through TSA With This Flight Attendant's Genius Hack
According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), liquids must be limited to 3.4-ounce containers in a single quart-sized bag to get through airport security.
However, infant formula, breast milk, and other drinks for babies are considered "medically necessary" and, therefore, aren't under the same restrictions as most other liquids.
With this in mind, flight attendant @flyingwithskates recommends storing your liquids in plastic breast milk bags. In a TikTok, the creator pours almond milk into one of the bags.
As she says, the hack works for those who want to meal prep before their flights, and the zippered bags are spill-proof so that you won't make a mess in your suitcase.
This idea could raise some eyebrows at security checkpoints, as you must inform security officers of these liquids, and they won't let your bags through without careful inspection.
You also won't be able to put non-white liquids in the bags. Brightly colored sports drinks, soups, and other goodies will be thrown out, even if they're in breast milk containers.
