    This expert is helping you out because there weren't many active United Airlines experts.

    Sorry, but the answer above is incorrect. You can take gel or liquids in small containers of less than 3 ounces. Of course you will need them in your carry on! How else will you freshen up?

    Here is the link to the TSA's 3-1-1 rule:

    Hello

    If you are traveling with any liquid, gel or aerosol items, here are a few things you should remember:

    Customers departing from U.S. airports on any flight may bring carry-on bags through security and aboard the aircraft with trial-size toiletries (3.4 ounces or less) which can be purchased at any drug store.
    Toiletries must fit comfortably in one, quart-size (7.5-inch x 8-inch), clear plastic zip-top bag.
    The zip-top bag may need to be presented separately at airport security so make sure it is easily accessible when you approach the screening area.

    Additionally, beverages or toiletries purchased inside the airport beyond the security checkpoints will be allowed onboard the aircraft.

    If you are connecting to another flight and are required to reenter through a security checkpoint, the regulations outlined above will apply, and no exemption will be made for items you purchased in the boarding area of your originating airport.

    Items greater than 3.4 ounces and/or not contained in a zip-top bag may be allowed on board but must be declared to the TSA at the security checkpoint for screening. These items include baby formula, milk (to include breast milk), baby food, juice, medications and liquids/gels that are needed for diabetic or other medical conditions.

    There are changes to rules al the time. Depending when you plan on travelling I recommend that you visit the TSA website to determine what the policy du jour is.
