I think the whole impaction thing is blown way out of proportion. A snake consuming small amounts of substrate here and there doesn't pose a health risk. Like Andy said they don't eat on paper towel or in a Rubbermaid in the wild and they seem to do fine If you're worried just dry off the meal with some paper towel to prevent a lot of eco earth sticking to it. That's when she's on f/t of course lol
