Containers of 100mls or less of liquids, gels, pastes, lotions and

no more than one litre capacity, 20cm x 20cm. The rules apply to all
liquids/gels/pastes such as water and beverages, aerosol cans and
toiletries such as toothpaste, shaving cream, hair gel, lip-gloss and
creams. Capacity must be clearly indicated on each container.
