That's the simple question-- at least I hope it's simple. Thanks.

Yes, of course! Just make sure it's closed tightly so the lid won't come off. You may want to put it in a plastic bag not to spoil your clothes, just in case

We always check in sprays.

I've tried the aeresol sprays 2xs and both times the air pressure just forced the spray out (be sure to use ziplocks) I haven't tried the pump spray.

Yes, you can. I just traveled with them and I had no issues. I put tape around the plastic cap to prevent them from being depressed and I had no problems.

Thanks for replies. Yes, I was afraid that the pressure might somehow force off the caps. I'd thought of using zipbags, but wondered whether they'd be 100% leak proof. I guess I'll maybe double-zip.

I travel with aerosol sunscreen in checked luggage. Yes I do put it in a large ziplock along with other suntan lotions. I've never had either type leak.
