    This is too funny! Can I bottle it? I am little concern about the packaging. Is it recyclable?

  2. Carol said,

    Thank you for your questions.
    1st let me start off by stating that your GG will come in a sealed container. You may transfer it from said container to another vessel of your choosing. I would suggest taking appropriate precautions.
    2nd Your package of GG will come attached to an Official Card (printed on recycled paper, of course!) Stating that indeed it is the Original GG and where it was collected.
    I hope that I have addressed all your concerns. Please feel free to ask any future questions.
    Thanks again,

  3. can you get me something from the Plaza Hotel?

  4. Carol said,

    But of course!
    How many packages would you like?

    Hi Carol,

    Do you offer a bulk discount? Do you offer Gift Packaging?

    Can I choose my neighborhood, and are there any discounts or hidden fees, say for “clean” NY neighborhoods like Riverdale, Forest Hills and Richmond Hill, Staten Island? Or “dirty” NY neighborhoods with extra emissions like 42nd and 5th, 3rd Ave. near the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, or Hunts Point in the Bronx?

    Do you have any celebrity packages like Bloomberg Subway Grime, Madonna At The Waldorf Grime, or Corey Lidel Was Here Grime?

    After receiving the Grime, how can I clean and maintain it? Do I need special humidifiers, air cleaners, or other procedures to keep the Grime “authentically dirty”?

    Are there any special safety considerations, including spontaneous combustion, exposure to pets and unexpected visits by my Mother-In-Law?

    Last but not least, I’d like to know if there is an Authentic Grime Certification Process or Standard. How can I measure my Grime up to the Grime that others may have collected? Will my Grime be as good as any Grime that collects on someone’s stuff in say, East Tremont, The Bronx?
