Whether you purchased a new pair of shoes, an electronic item or pretty much anything these days… the box containing these items has silica gel packets. They are ubiquitous to any product where moisture can potentially ruin a product, but most of us throw away Silica Gel Packets without giving them a second thought.
In fact, I was only vaguely aware they served any purpose at all – “they absorb moisture” was what I was told as a kid and after that, I never really gave them any thought at all.
In reality, the moisture absorbing power of Silica Gel Packets has many more applications than their intended purpose. You can use them just about anywhere moisture is an issue or to absorb moisture if something that is water sensitive is exposed to the elements.
Once you see these awesome ideas on the next page, I would be willing to bet you will wonder how many you have thrown away over the years that you could have reused.
