Silica Gel Uses
Silica gel packets (found in shoe boxes, electronics, and many Asian snack foods)
If your phone ever gets wet, place it in a plastic bag full of silica gel packets, and leave it overnight. The packets will dry out your phone better than rice, and increase the chances of saving your phone!
You can use the silica gel packets to de-clump salt, sugar, or any other ingredients that tend to clump up when moisture gets to them.
Tape a packet or two to the inside of bulk snacks. This will keep them from going stale longer.
Keep old photos and documents safe and dry in storage boxes by throwing in a couple silica gel packets.
Need to pack a damp swimsuit? Place it in a bag with a bunch of silica gel packets (the more the better!) and throw it in your bag. The water will be sapped right out. (This is also great in gym bags!)
Windshield fogging up? Save time by lining your dashboard with silica gel packets. The moisture will be whisked away.
To recharge your packets, place them in the oven at 275ºF/135ºC on an aluminum foil-lined baking tray for about an hour, or use a dehydrator if you have access to one! Enjoy these tips, and remember to dehydrate them again every few months.
