For years I’ve been afraid of flying my stainless steel cutlery, straws, tripods, and clicker in my carry on bag. I hated the idea of TSA confiscating them.
So I would always pack them in my checked bag, and just be inconvenienced if I decided to go out to eat after arriving at my new destination.
But then one day, I saw a video of a woman drinking from a metal straw in the airport, and was blown away! I thought to myself ‘TSA let that through scanning?’
So you know I had to investigate! I didn’t even continue watching the video. I went straight to googling things that I can bring in my carry on. And while researching the topic, I stumbled upon the TSA “What Can I Bring” webpage!
It wasn’t until after I reviewed the site, that I learned everything I was afraid to pack in my carry on was allowed on an aircraft.
So Globetrotters, grab your reusable cutlery set (without your knife, of course), and your stainless steel straw and let’s get to packing your perfect carry on using the TSA website as a guide!
The TSA website mentions: “Planning and packing properly can facilitate the screening process and ease your travel experience at the airport. Know what you can pack in your carry-on and checked baggage before arriving at the airport by reviewing the lists below.”
So here is the link to the TSA What Can I Bring webpage! (It’s such an extensive list, I wouldn’t even attempt to copy and past it here!)
