    Do you re-use...?

    Do you use the insulated boxes and snake bags that have been sent to you, in order to send out one of your snakes to someone else??

    Nope.. I like to use a fresh box, just makes me feel better. I like knowing that its a clean non-contaminated box..Same thing with the bags..their so cheap there's no need to not use a new one..

    Re: Do you re-use...?

    I will reuse a box if it is clean and there is no issue with the structural integrity. I will reuse bags too, but they get washed first. If a box it ripped, soiled, wrinkled or similar, I discard them.

    I reuse, not because I am cheap, but because I hate to fill a landfill with perfectly usable items.

    Re: Do you re-use...?

    I've reused boxes, but ONLY ones that are in PRISTINE condition.

    ALWAYS a new bag and warmer/s.

    I will be ordering boxes and more supplies once I get babies, so after that it'll be all new stuff from then on out.

    Re: Do you re-use...?

    I was all my bags in a 1-10 bleach solution then wash with no bleach.

    I re-use nice boxes. The corners are what I look at the most.



    In todays world, wasting so much product is just crazy to me, so I try and recycle as much as I can.

    Re: Do you re-use...?

    I launder all the bags I have in, and usually only use them in terms of personal snake workings, but I have and will reuse both bags and boxes as long as they are cleaned out.

    I do wash everything before I send things out.

    And I don't see how you can reuse a heat pack.. I've never done that before.

    You can't reuse a heat pack. Or should I say, it would be extremely expensive if you tried. The heat packs contain iron powder which oxidizes in an exothermic reaction. To reuse it, you would have to smelt the iron oxide to remove the oxygen.
