    My brother just left this morning after staying with us for a couple months. He was here to recover from having all of his teeth pulled. About an hour after he left, and an hour into his trip north, he called me in a panic. In his rush to leave, he forgot something extremely important to him. His teeth ( he can't wear them full time yet...), are still on my kitchen counter, in a coffee cup. He forgot to package them after he brushed them. Stop laughing please..... Now he wants me to ship them to him. How would I go about packaging them for the mail? I thought putting them in a baggie, inside a box might be okay, but I am not sure. Any suggestions would be helpful. Now, I can say I have mailed some of the strangest things on earth. lol! Thanks for your help.

    In a baggie is good but wrap it also in bubble wrap and then the box........safe as a momma's arms. But INSURE IT.

    That's a good sissie.

    LOL - a baggie should work. A friend of mine had to remove her's before surgury. She put them in a baggie with a little water and sealed them up tight. Her husband carried them in his jacket pocket so she could have them as soon as she was awake. Worked fine.

    I would package them like fragile glass - they are sturdy - but I would make sure they were well-protected from bumps.

    Yes, sister, PLEASE use bubble wrap and insure them. If you don't I won't stop laughing !! :-D :-D
    You can get a free small flat-rate Priority box at the post office for 4.75 or so and then insurance.
    I ship for my ebay business every day and the post office is terrible with packages!!

    ditto :thumbup: if it is the top and bottom be sure to warp them individually with bubble wrap insure, insure insure.

    Sounds like the time I lost my glasses.....found them the next day in the freezer. My DH either played a mean joke or I left them in there when they fogged up while I was looking for something.

    You know all the plastic bags we get when we are shopping, I use those in packages.
