How to Use Quart Size Bags When Traveling

When it’s time to pack, quart size bags can help you organize virtually everything in your luggage. But before you start filling your suitcase, it’s always helpful to make a packing list. This not only helps you keep track of what additional items you need to buy, but it also lets you designate a quart bag for each category of items — toiletries, toys, snacks, documents and more.

And if you’re planning on using quart size bags to bring liquids on a plane, Glad can help you with that, too. You can use Glad® Flex’n Seal™ Bags to keep liquids organized in your luggage and it also helps prevent leaks and the best part? It stretches to fit 30% more vs. Glad standard food bags.

Another option for storing liquids or toiletries is Glad® Press’n Seal® Wrap, which creates an airtight seal and also seals to almost any surface, including itself, making handy custom-sized packages. Now that’s a seal that sticks with you during traveling.

How to Store Liquids on a Plane

TSA rules state that liquids must be in a clear quart-size bag. Luckily, here at Glad, we’ve got all the quart-size bags you’ll need to stay organized, as well as TSA compliant.

How to Use Large Plastic Bags When Traveling

Not everything in your luggage is going to squeeze into a quart bag. That’s where gallon plastic bags come in.

You can use it to store liquids, but in that case, you should check it. Another great idea is to use Glad® Food Bags as a dirty clothes bag or laundry bag to keep clean clothes fresh on your trip.

Also, if you’re planning to pack your sneakers or fancy shoes, 4-gallon plastic trash bags are the perfect fit for your needs. Check out our Glad® Small Garbage Bags!
