They should also abide by the travel restrictions set by government and airline regulations. At present, passengers are generally only permitted to carry liquids up to 100ml in their hand luggage. You may also be limited to the amount of bottles you can carry, usually in a single, clear bag, so it is critical you take only the items you need the most, and it helps to take items that have multiple uses.
