    Illegal to mail fluids in case of leaks

  • 1 month ago

    Because mailing fluids is illegal.  They have to make sure that you are not shipping illegal goods and if you are, they will help you with how you can ship them.

    They don't want it to leak and get on someone else's mail.

    Certain kinds of substances have caused damage or other worse problems in the past, and the post office will not ship them.

    It's pretty obvious that a liquid whose container is damaged or not properly sealed could leak into its own package then onto other packages. Or onto sorting equipment, or in delivery trucks or mail bags, etc. Depending on what the liquid is, it could cause lasting problems rather than just evaporating.

    For two reasons:

    1.  They could break open during shipment.

    2.  USPS cannot ship certain dangerous liquids.
