Packing is a hassle. You feel the anxiety creeping in when you have to pack up your luggage last minute and your brain gets twisted-wired into remembering what you’ll be needing. One of the most important items you’ll mistake forgetting is your toiletries. This category of items is something you might not be able to buy anywhere else. Now, you’ve collected all your toiletries but what do you keep it in? In a plastic bag? It's the 21st century! It’s high time to jump on the eco-friendly bandwagon. A toiletry bag is the perfect alternative. It’s also called a ‘Dopp Kit’. It is like a luggage bag of a smaller size but for your bathroom or grooming essentials. If you’re in your bathroom scratching your head about what to put in your toiletry bag, just relax and read through this easy article. We’ll have you covered on the essentials from A to Z.
I know you’re feeling giddy and excited while packing for your trip as normally people do but it's important to pack smartly be it your luggage or toiletries. If you don't know what they are, toiletries are your grooming essentials that may range from your toothbrush to skincare. Now just because you use 50 products a day does not mean you need to pack all of them for your trip.
You need to remember the luggage weight guidelines and airport security may not allow every item to get by. This is why I said to pack smartly. This blog will tell you exactly how to pack your toiletry bag so your packing process can become less overwhelming and you can check in your luggage smoothly.

TIPS TO PACK YOUR TOILETRY
AIRPORT SECURITY RULES
Make sure to properly check the TSA guidelines since toiletries are mainly liquid. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has specific guidelines for bringing toiletries in your carry-on bag. The TSA's 3-1-1 rule states that all liquids, gels, and aerosols can't be larger than 3.4 ounces, and all containers must fit in a single, clear, quart-sized plastic bag. Keeping this liquid rule in mind is going to save you the hassle of getting stopped by security. If you have products over 3.4 ounces, they must go in a checked bag.
A benefit of having a toiletry bag is it keeps your bathroom and grooming essentials separate from your clothes. It more easier for the TSA agents to skim through your luggage. And also saves your clothes from potential leakages from the containers.
GET MULTIPURPOSE PRODUCTS
Packing is all about agonizing over what to bring with you. If you can't live without any of your regular toiletries, invest in dual-purpose items. While there are many dual-purpose cosmetic items on the market, such as a blush and highlight combo, a red tint is a must-have beauty item that can be used as a lip tint, blush, and eyeshadow.
A BB Cream with SPF that provides good coverage, similar to a concealer.
Purchase a product that combines hair shampoo and body wash.
E-commerce websites have a huge selection of these useful things designed with your travel needs in mind.
Do not throw away those perfume and facewash samples. This is the time you’ll be needing those the most. These mini toiletries add virtually no extra weight and help make space for extra things you want to take.
EXTRA CARE FOR THE LIQUIDS
Spilled or leaked products always is a wreck and cleaning it up just adds stress to your trip. Always make sure if any of your products have a broken lid or are likely to leak. This is why it's a good idea to keep small refillable bottles. You can fill in these bottles with your shampoo or body wash. Packing large-sized toiletries bears a risk of breaking, leaking, and taking up too much space in your bag.
Liquids have to have special care. In case of breakage of the container and you don't have another alternative, secure these bottles in a zipper plastic bag or any secure bag that just tightly wraps the liquids and prevents them from spilling the liquid within the bag. This helps to keep it secure even when airport security is just tossing over and around your bag.
