Do you have to put stick deodorant in your quart size bag in your carry on or gallon bag in your checked or would I be allowed to just leave it in with my clothes?
Btw I am going to Philadelphia then Mexico if that makes a difference.

A quick google search returns this TSA page:

"Stick deodorant is fine in any size. Well, almost any size… Powders and crystals are good to go as well"

For fun, click on the link on the tsa page (under "almost any size").

  • That is the kind of stick deodorant that is not liquid or cream.

It's specifically allowed by the TSA but that doesn't mean it doesn't get flagged by a security agent that's having a bad day or is just not good at their job.

I recently got yelled at for bringing having deo stick and not putting it in the quart bag. Although a deo stick is specifically allowed, trying to argue the point with the officer is counterproductive, especially if you still want to make your flight.
