The reasons why you should keep silica packets

Must See 05/07/2019

Whenever you purchase something new, there is almost always one or a couple of those tiny little silica packets. 

Rather than just tossing them out into the rubbish, you can actually reuse them in a whole range of ways.1. Extend The Life Of Razor Blades

Excess moisture can cause razor blades to get dull quickly. So pop a few silica gel packets into a container and store your razors inside. 

2. Dry Out A Wet Mobile Phone

We all know you need to act quickly if your phone gets wet. Dry off the phone as much as you can with a towel, and remove the SIM card. Then put it in a ziplock bag or airtight container filled with silica gel bags. 

3. Unfog Your Windscreen

This is an impressive one. To prevent your windscreen from fogging up in the morning, place some silica gel packets under the windscreen on the inside of your car. It will help stop painful mornings waiting for your car to unfog.

4. Preserve Your Makeup

Just throw a silica packet in your makeup bag to help prevent your products from splitting or sweating on hot days or while travelling. 

5. Inside Storage Containers

If you have big plastic containers full of important documents, old school work or just simply household odds and ends you should pop a couple of silica gel sacks inside the box to absorb any moisture.

6. Look After Your Luggage

Throw a few silica packets on the bottom of your suitcase to absorb moisture and prevent your clothes from getting clammy when you travel.

But if course if you're going to keep them, make sure to store them in a safe location away from small children and pets. You don't want them to accidentally eat one!
