Bring Clorox Wipes in Your Carry on Bag
The TSA has a rule called the 3-1-1 Rule that prohibits passengers from bringing liquids, gels, and aerosols on a plane in carry on bags if the container exceeds 3.4oz/100ml.
Even though Clorox wipes are soaked in liquid, this rule does not apply to them.
So you can bring Clorox wipes on a plane without any special packaging or quantity limitations.
Bring Clorox Wipes in Your Checked Bag
If you want to pack Clorox wipes in your checked bags, that is also fine.
Again, there are no size restrictions or packaging requirements that you must follow.
Just throw the wipes in your bag, and you will be good to go.
No Differences for International Flights
The TSA may only have authority in the USA, but you will find that the same rules apply worldwide.
So this means that you will be able to bring Clorox wipes on a plane in both your carry on and checked bags and won’t run into any issues at the airport.
Airlines follow TSA regulations.
So regardless if you’re flying with Southwest, Delta, United, American airlines, or any other regional or major carrier, you will be fine to bring Clorox wipes on a plane in both your carry on and checked wipes.
You can also use these wipes on a plane throughout any stage of the flight, too.
How to Pack Clorox Wipes for Travel
Clorox wipes and other wipes can be packed in both your carry on and checked bags without size restrictions or packaging requirements.
This is because they aren’t considered a liquid by the TSA, so aren’t subject to the 3-1-1 Rule.
As planes can be quite dirty at times, you might want to pack them in your carry on, so you can use them on a plane.
Brining Other Sanitizing Wipes on a Plane
Besides Clorox wipes, you can also bring other sanitizing wipes on a plane in both your carry on and checked bags.
This includes Lysol wipes, Purell wipes, and other brands.
You Can Also Bring Makeup and Wet Wipes
Leave the Lysol at Home
You are not allowed to bring Lysol on a plane in either your carry on or checked bags.
This is because Lysol is considered flammable, so can put the safety of passengers and the cabin crew at risk.
Lysol wipes are perfectly fine to pack, though.
Bringing Hand Sanitizer is Fine
According to TSA regulations, you are allowed to bring hand sanitizer on a plane.
You can bring one liquid hand sanitizer container up to 12 ounces in your carry on bag, and there is no limit if hand sanitizer is packed in your checked bags.
This hasn’t always been the case, though.
Since the covid pandemic, the TSA changed the rules from only bringing 3.4oz/100ml of hand sanitizer in carry on bags.
The rule may change in the future.
You Can Also Bring Most Disinfectant Sprays
According to TSA regulations, you can pack disinfectant sprays (as long as they are non-flammable) in both your carry on and checked bags.
If packed in your carry on, the bottle must not exceed 3.4oz/100ml.
