Can I put these in the compost pile? They break down when they get wet. I don't want to put them in the garbage because the point is that they are supposed to be biodegradible, but I don't know what to do with them. Has anybody done anything else with them?

Some I reused in a package that I mailed.

Well, I guess I'll give it a try. They dissolve well enough on my dogs' noses, so they will probably dissolve in the compost pile too. I'll let you know!
