Are aerosol spray cans (Lysol) permitted on air carriers -- in the luggage of course.

When we went to Barbados in Feb., There was some controversy over
aerosol insect repellant. They (AA) said that, since it was repellant,
not insecticide, it was permitted.

I believe that the wording of the US regulation allows "personal care"
items. The limit is 16 fluid ounces per container, total of 70 fluid
ounces per bag (or maybe per person?).

Checked luggage is in an area of the plane that is not pressurized.  
There is always the chance that the Lysol spray will rupture and
"explode" all over you things in your suitcase.  It happened to my dad
with a can of shaving cream once.  Just be sure that you wrap it well in
clear plastic bags, just in case.

Just out of curiosity, where are you going that you think you'll need
Lysol?  Isn't it an item you can pick up at a convenience store?

Maybe they like to spray down their luggage as soon as they get it off the
belt? Seems weird to me too.

It all depends on what it is in the can, and how large it is.
If it is a normal size can, containing stuff for "normal use" (hairspray,
deodorant etc) it is not a problem.

That's not true.  Cargo areas are pressurized. The whole "tube" of the
main fuselage is pressurized.  That's why Fido doesn't die when you
transport him.

Even at total evacuation, the max pressure differential increase between
the inside of the can and ambient is approx. 15 psi -- not enough to
cause a rupture. The real problem is potential leakage, so it is a good
idea to put those cans in ziplock bags. I also do that with my
pre-electric shave lotion, and squeeze some of the air out of the
bottle, so any altitude changes don't cause leaks.

lots of things will leak so it is a good idea to package the dop kit in
a large plastic bag and small containers of liquids that way as well --
those stupid flip top lids on so many personal care products now are
more prone to leak than the old fashioned***on tops -- although
those have been known to burst.  I rarely come back from a long trip
overseas that something hasn't leaked in the dop kit or luggage so the
plastic bags are just SOP in our packing

they say no -- but when we were recently questioned, they didn't care
about a can of aerosol shaving cream -- what they were really trying to
keep out of the luggage was camping fuel and stuff like that -- so they
let us pass with hair spray and shaving cream

I have to ask.  Has anybody used any dop in their personal grooming
lately?   Why the h*ll is it called a dop kit if there's no dop in it?  
Dop, dop, dop...sounds like something undesirable, like a leaky toilet.  
Maybe it's just me but I prefer to simply call mine "My Stuff", or my
grooming kit.   Dop, maybe it's the stuff you find on the bottom of the
fridge and you don't know what it is but you're sure it's responsible
for that curious smell that you thought was misplaced Baba Ganush.

Dop, maybe it's original use was to contain those Pods from "Invasion of
the Bodysnatchers".  Clever Pod people that they were, they changed the
name to Dop so as not to alarm unsuspecting males going about shaving.

My imagination is getting the best of me.  I must know. 8-)

When in college one of my favorite things to do with aerosol deoderant
or hairspray was to turn it into a mini-flamethrower. :-X

Seems to be another of the things the carriers are getting their knickers in
a twist over; the advice used to be to carry aerosols in your hand-luggage
but the latest info I've got (from ***) says they are NOT allowed in
hand-luggage.

Ok, so it's the shortened version of some German guy's name.  Still
sounds like something unpleasant.  Thanks.  I'll continue to call mine
"My Stuff" or "Grooming Kit"  it's more descriptive.
