"I use contact lens cases. You can sterilize them (especially the ones for the old thermal disinfection units), they're really light, and easily resealed. I've carried anti-biotic cream and Gold Bond lotion for years this way. You can put the product in very easily, and there are no questions asked when it appears in your carry-on, as opposed to those very C4-looking straws :-)"
That's a really neat idea, and definitely eliminates the McGyver look :P
Can i get them at walmart or a drug store? I don't wear contacts so I'm not sure how much they'd be, etc.?
Also, i kind of agree that repackaging the anti-biotic ointment shouldn't be a big deal. But, for neosporine, I already bought some prepackaged in to-go foil squeeze packets.
