Default tide stick ok on carryon for airplane?

just curious to know if they will confiscate my tide spot remover from my carry on luggage. AA states that "Household Items - Bleach, spray starch, insecticides, drain cleaners and solvents - are NOT allowed on carry ons. but I don't know if it is considered a solvent. Anyone have experience with this?

I packed my Tide-To-Go in my suitcases because I knew tey would take it. I suggest wearing something on the plane that you can just toss in the wash if it does get stained while enroute to your destination.

Hi Michelle:

A friend of mine had a Tide-to-go stick in his carry-on back when the regulations were first established. His Tide stick was confiscated and thrown away.

I just returned from a trip to Denver and discovered that I had flown roundtrip with a Tide stick in my purse. It was never questioned when going through security at either airport. That may be one of the items they are more lenient on now.

Have Fun!

I have seen it taken away.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

ok thanks; maybe I'll leave it in the carry on and hope for the best. We're only using carryons,no checked luggage - if they take it, they take it. not a biggie

The issue might he the size. If it's over 3 ounces, it's gone. They typically have the qt. sized bags at the beginning of the security line, but I take my own already packed up with my 3 ouncers.

I too, have seen them taken away. Maybe they just can't get past the shape? 8)

Default options

Another option would be Shout Wipes that come in individual packets, or Shout Stain stick which is a solid roll on stain remover that works up to 7 days....not the gel form. (I use this at home and it is wonderful esp if you can't get your laundry done immediately)

The TSA issue I think with the Tide Stain stick is that it is a marker-like item which means the liquid is contained in the barrel...not only is the 3 oz rule apply here but as you mentioned the solvent rule would also apply.

People have mentioned that things get by TSA all the time. I am sure they do miss things from time to time...You hear those stories all the time. ....there is a lot to look for on those Xray screens. But the exception would not make it a rule. Bottom line, if you know it might be confiscated then be prepared to part with it.

If it really is "no biggie" I would leave it home instead up taking a chance of it's holding up the line and inconviencing others.
