In the video, she said: “I found the best set of travel minis with a little funnel and spatula for £1 in Primark.”

While the tiny bottles are small enough to stay under the 100ml rule for most UK airports, they wouldn’t meet the guidelines enforced at Manchester Airport.
This is because the refillable bottles sold at high-street chains like Primark, Poundland, and Flying Tiger don’t have a measurement printed on them.
A statement on the Manchester Airport website read: “Please note – if you wish to bring your own containers to hold 100ml or less, the container must have printed on it the measurement that the container can hold.
“Travel sets of containers that do not have measurements on them will not be allowed through security. Handwritten measurements or stickers are also not acceptable.”
While most newly purchased refillable travel sets come without any measurements on the bottles, there is a way to skirt Manchester Airport’s strict rule.
Instead of purchasing brand-new bottles from supermarkets and online retailers, holidaymakers can decant their toiletries into travel-sized miniatures.
Tiny travel toiletries like Original Sauce body wash and Aussie Shampoo and Conditioner have liquid measurements printed onto their packaging.
Those passengers who are flying from Manchester Airport will just need to rinse the travel toiletries clean before refilling them with other products.
Holidaymakers who don’t have any travel-sized products at home can purchase some at high-street chains like Boots and Superdrugs.
While this might sound like a right faff, UK holidaymakers won’t need to worry about the 100ml liquids rule for much longer.
