I would like to send a bottle of liquid by post but it is forbidden in my country and Xray always catches my parcel.
Do you know how I could do ?
You should be asking yourself a few questions:
-- Why is it forbidden to send liquids by post? (safety issues: risk of breakage and spillage; airmail: will the item be transported by air at any stage, or risk of explosion from pressure buildup in a sealed container)
-- Is the liquid really being detected by Xrays? (remember that the postal service has dogs trained to sniff out drugs or explosives, and even if your liquid is innocent of either of these charges it is possible that it may be providing a false positive, or that dogs might be trained to detect other substances, e.g. alcohol)
-- Should you be checking the fine print of the postal regulations? (for example, in my country, Australia, it may be possible to transport small amounts of liquid provided that the bottle is packed in a much larger box in vermiculite, and that the postal service/courier is aware of the nature of the shipment)
