Most of us look forward to traveling. Packing? Not so much. But with a travel bottle set designed to save you space, that all changes. And at Gravel, we have the perfect pair that makes packing and traveling on the go a breeze.
Here's how you can use a travel-size bottle set to your advantage:
Why Would You Need a Travel Bottle Set?
When the first suitcase grew a pair of wheels, it came with the promise of "weightless travel." But as anyone who's ever rolled a bag through bumps in the road can tell you, rolling spinners may restrict ease of travel depending on where you’re headed.
So, how does a travel bottle set figure into all of this? Well, if you want to ditch your rolling luggage for a backpack, or travel light regardless of what you choose, it's always good to pack minimally and stay organized while on the road. And travel containers designed to save you space can help you do just that.
Choosing a Travel Bottle Set: What to Look for
When it comes to travel-size bottles, you'll want to think about the classic shampoo and conditioner combo. Choosing a set that includes these two essentials will give you more room to pack other items, like a face cleanser and body lotion. All you have to do is pour!
At Gravel, our silicone travel bottle set includes a pair of TSA-approved, 3 oz bottles that feature a leak-proof design. They’re great for carrying shampoo, conditioner, lotion, sunscreen, or any other liquid you need for your trip. Plus, they form a neat square when arranged together, so it's easy to organize them in a clear, TSA-compliant bag without wasting too much space.
How to Use Your Travel-Size Bottles
You can use travel containers for any liquid as long as its contents are allowed by TSA when traveling by plane. However, there are some rules to keep in mind:
- Make sure your containers are the right size! Otherwise, the TSA will confiscate any liquids that exceed three ounces.
- Fully twist on lids and caps until they are tightly secured to prevent leaks.
- Store containers in a clear, well-fitting bag for optimal storage results. This may also prevent leakage.
- Label your travel bottle set for easy identification (our labels come built-in!).
- Pack your travel containers in your carry-on bag, not your checked luggage.
Make the most of your travel bottle set by following these basic rules. With a bit of organization, you'll soon find that packing is anything but a drag!
Other Things to Consider Before Buying Travel-Size Bottles
Before you buy a travel bottle set, consider the following:
1) Do you travel often?
Instead of buying a separate set for each trip, consider investing in a durable set that you can reuse for future travel plans.
2) How many pieces do you need?
The basics include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and cleanser. But if your goal is to travel light, see if you can get away with just shampoo and conditioner!
3) Where do you plan on storing your travel-size bottles?
Ideally, your backpack, purse, or carry-on will have a designated pocket for travel bottles, with a wide mouth to fit your hand inside. Otherwise, think about where you can store them so that you might be able to retrieve them easily if need be.
4) Do you need to carry lotions and creams with you during your trip?
If so, be sure to choose travel-size bottles that are easy to dispense, like our squeezable silicone bottles that fit into each other like a glove. Then, if you need to reuse them with a different product, toss them in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
A travel bottle set can help you pack smarter, not harder! And at Gravel, we have the perfect solution for any liquid or product you need.
While there are some rules to keep in mind when using travel-size bottles, they're a great way to save space and be efficient. The best part? You can take them on the plane, train, or automobile without fearing a messy explosion during a flight or a bumpy car ride.
