out everything from chap stick to very expensive hair products and
wine. But, on August 13 the TSA made
changes to the ban, without comprimising security. They
allowed liquids to be
carried on if they were placed within the confines of a small zip lock
together. So, if you are flying here are
some things to remember.

a bottle so that it fits in the zip lock bag, make sure you put it in a
