Prevent Water from Ruining a Cell Phone
Similar to the way that rice works to absorb the water your phone may have been subjected to, silica gel packets work in the same way. Cover your phone in them and wait at least twenty-four hours before powering your phone back on.
Cameras are used to document memories in picture form. As such, should you go from a cold climate to a warmer one, your camera might be exposed to condensation that could leave marks across the lens, or affect the camera’s internal mechanisms. By taking out the memory card, battery, and even the lens if possible, place the remaining parts of your camera with silica gel packets, and the condensation will be dried away.
Silica Gel Packets are usually something we notice in the bottom of dry goods or in shoe boxes that we throw out without much thought. Before doing that, however, we should really consider just how valuable these little packets are.
It turns out they have many practical applications! To learn a few other clever ways to utilize silica gel (yes, for survival as well), head to the next slide.
Good for snacks!
Thanks for this! Any closet could certainly benefit from something that helps keep the moisture level down too. Silica gel would work perfectly!
Put them in your map case
Not much potential left in used ones…

We have cans full, lots of uses for them
Ignites when mixed with potassium permanganate
I keep em in my gun safe.
Stops my hooks from rusting in my tackle box and all my gun cases and ammo.
I save them to put in ammo can. Not really sure if they’re doing anything but I would like to believe so
always save them for the gun safe…
I see nothing but the purpose they are made for????
I put em in my ammo boxes
My gun cabinets are full of these
So are my foid storage containers
I do the same thing. Put them in my gun safe. I also put them with my cast iron cookware.
Use these for my tackle box
I already reuse these for my magic cards
Ammo boxes, gun cases are my uses for them.
Lmao… or just eat them

I have used these in my gun cabinets for years. A lot of people use expensive de humidifiers for no reason. Anywhere I store weapons including knives, you’ll find these packets there and they work perfectly !
been keeping mine you’ll need them some day
I keep one in with my char.
No, throw them out. Once they are expressed to the air they are ruined. Too much moisture in everyday air to be useful.
For river folk helos absorb all your s**t
