What can you take on an airplane?

from what ive read i think its up to 3 ounces in each little bottle right? i have a cheap razor (to shave my face) and i was curious if that would be taken? anything else besides the obvious weapons, that i can't take or shouldn't fool around with?

    Well, it's really more a question of what you CAN'T take on the airplane. You're correct in thinking that you must have all liquids in containers of 3oz or less (aside from bottled water you buy after you've cleared security); you should store these containers in a quart-sized Ziploc bag and pull them out when you go through the security check to be scanned separately. The razor is fine.

    Here are a few very helpful links from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which regulates what can and can't be brought on board. This is regarding the 3oz rule for carry-on baggage:

    And this is a more general link for guidelines regarding other things you might want to bring on board:

    Finally, here's a list of things that are absolutely prohibited at all costs!:

    As long as you follow these guidelines, you'll be fine.

    Hope this helps -- have a safe flight!

    According to the Transport Security Administration website you are allowed to bring safety razors including disposable razors.

    All liquids, gels and aerosols must be in three-ounce or smaller containers.

    All liquids, gels and aerosols must be placed in a single, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag.

    The best thing to do is have a read on the website.

    Each traveler can use only one, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag.

    Each traveler must remove their quart-sized plastic, zip-top bag from their carry-on and place it in a bin or on the conveyor belt for X-ray screening.

    X-raying separately will allow TSA security officers to more easily examine the declared items.
