I don't think the Feds or FAA would feel this way if liquid of an unknown origin was leaking from a package on an airplane in its cargo hold.... But again, I don't know much about that.

You know I didn't think about that. Do you have to "declare" every liquid that is shipped via USPS?

Yeah, legally they are supposed to ask even if you go to Staples or Office Depot or places like that. The 2nd hand shippers tend to ask fewer questions. If I send USPS I vacuum seal all the bottles in food saver bags just because I'm scared to death something is gonna get on a plane and start leaking. Also vacuum sealing does a remarkable job of keeping the bottles from knocking together if they are in the same bag. It's still illegal and I'm not suggesting anyone do it.

The few times I did it, I said it was soda, only so they know what they are in for if they drop it or put it on a plane or whatever. Hopefully congress will pass the bill I heard about and all this will become a thing of the past but it has yet to be tabled for a vote as far as I know.
