I've always just said "no liquids and not perishable" just to avoid complications.
You do the same thing I do. Any question the postal clerk asks me, the answer is "no". I have had enough disputes with postal clerks to last a lifetime. I am now using PayPal's label printing, postage paying service, and I don't need to even see a postal clerk again. My post office has a big mail box where I can just dump the Priority mail package and never see a single human face.
