The summer months are here and you will probably be relaxing on a vacation with your family.
If your vacation plans include a flight on a commercial airline, keep the TSA regulations for toiletries in mind.
You are allowed to bring one small bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes through the checkpoint. These are limited to 3.4 ounces or less per container. Consolidating these containers in the small bag separate from your carry-on baggage enables TSA officers to screen them quickly.
3-1-1 for carry-ons:
Liquids, gels, aerosols, creams, and pastes must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container; must be in 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. The bag limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. — From TSA.gov
Prepare a personal toiletries kit for each member of your family. Pack travel sizes of each of these items.
Road trips with the family can be a fun experience. However, stopping for fast food, snow cones, and fresh-squeezed lemonade can be bad not only your diet, but for your teeth as well. Use these rest stops as a chance to freshen up and brush your teeth.
Depending on the length of your trip, prepare snack packs for each member of the family. Fill small zip lock bags with apple slices, raisins, and nuts. Don’t forget to pack plenty of bottled water. Keep a travel kit just for the car to be used during rest stops. Include:
Hotel cosmetics kit on blue towel
What could be better than soaking up the sun on a beach vacation? Of course, you will want to enjoy the tastes of summer. But use moderation when you indulge your sweet tooth with Ice cream, southern-style sweet tea, cotton candy and more. The same rules apply for vacation as at home. Try to include healthy snacks, like baby carrots, apples, and other fresh fruits. Beach attire does not have much room for a travel bag. These items are compact enough to fit into your pocket.
Even though maintaining good dental habits while you are traveling can be difficult. Whether you are taking a flight, spending hours in the car on a road trip or relaxing on the beach, you can still find time for keeping up your dental care routine.
