The aircraft regulations that ban liquids, gels, and toothpastes have inconvenienced many travelers. But now, a company called Dental Air Force says that its powdered dental cleaner, packaged in individual cups, is an effective substitute.

The small, lightweight container has been allowed by the Federal Aviation Administration to be carried on board. The all-natural ingredients of the dental cleaner, used with a toothbrush, neutralize acids in the mouth, eliminate odors, and provide clean, minty breath. It can also be used as a mouthwash by adding water. The flight-friendly dental powder is available in a box of 24 cups for $9.99.
