Travel Sizes, if you please, say the powers that be! Read on to find an easy way to take your toiletries and more, or have them shipped to your hotel (in the USA).

Further to the post yesterday, on September 25, 2006, the US and Canada relaxed regulations for allowable airline carry-on items to permit gels, lotions, etc but
only for small travel sizes.
Travelers will be able to carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably into one, quart-size, clear plastic, zip-top bag.

At the checkpoint, travelers will be asked to remove the zip-top bag of toiletries and place it in a bin or on the conveyor belt, where it will be X-rayed separately. This will allow TSA security officers to more easily examine the declared items.
