A WOMAN has been praised as a "genius" for sharing how to get around the 100ml liquid rules when going on holiday.

TikTok user Emma Mahonn posted a video revealing the secret – and more than 25,000 people have liked the clever trick.

To travel through UK airports, all of your liquids must be less than 100ml if travelling with just hand luggage, and have to fit in a 100ml x 100ml plastic bag.

Showing herself placing a Boots order, she added items like shower gel, suncream and moisturiser to her basket, all of which were over 100ml.

She then opted for airport click and collect – meaning she could pick it up after security.

Not only that, but it meant she didn't have to pay airport prices which are often higher than the high street.

More than 180,000 people have liked the video.

One person said: "You are a genius. I am eternally grateful for this information."

Another added: "This is soooo smart omg."

Someone who even works at the high street shop said: "I work for boots & always tell people to do this."

Some people asked what she did when travelling back, as the liquids would be over the limit.

However, Emma replied: "My friend & I are sharing them so by the end of the holiday they'll be more or less done so we'll just bin them!"

It is worth checking the airport thas the service, as not all of them in the UK may have a Boots after security.

She also advised people to do it a few days in advance to make sure you can collect on the day.
