Do you know what you can and can’t mail through the US Postal Service?

The USPS guide for prohibited items in domestic packages can be found here:

Can You Mail It?
(https://www.usps.com/send/can-you-mail-it.htm)

Besides the prohibited items listed there, if you click the “Hazmat” tab there’s also restricted items that include perfumes, nail polish and another dozen items.

There’s also a tab for showing you size restrictions and one for “Special Handling” which is about shipping live animals.

Shipping plants or other perishables?
Shipping knives?

You’ll need the more detailed explanation–see this USPS publication:

Publication 52 – Hazardous, Restricted, and Perishable Mail
(http://pe.usps.com/text/pub52/welcome.htm)

For more shipping tips see our main “Shipping” page–see the gold links on the right or click here:
