Travelers showed up at airports with toiletries stored in zip-top plastic bags Tuesday as they tried to comply with new security rules allowing them to carry on small amounts of liquids and gels. Beginning Tuesday, liquid and gel toiletries in 3-ounce containers or smaller are allowed if they are in a clear plastic, quart-size ziplocked bag. Up to 4 ounces of some items are permitted in carry-on bags: eye drops, saline solution, nonprescription medicine and personal lubricants. Drinks, liquids and gels purchased in airport stores inside security checkpoints can be carried into passenger cabins, while baby formula and medications are allowed but will be inspected.
