These small silica bags are usually found in shoe boxes, as well as inside shoulder bags and other leather and leather-like products.
After taking your shoes or bag out the box, we usually throw them away.
The silica bags are filled with a substance called silicon dioxide. This substance can be of great importance around the house. These bags will dry everything in their closest environment.
Here are some tips on how to re-use them:
Save your drowned phone
You probably heard about the “rice trick” for this kind of accidents. But if something like this happens again, replace the rice with the silicon balls from the silica bags, because they’re much more useful
Put them in your gym bag
Because their main purpose is drying stuff around them and taking out the moist, put them in your gym bag, where bacteria from your sweated clothes is most likely to develop, because of the damp and moist environment. They will probably remove the odor as well!
Continue the lifespan of your razor
Put the silicon balls in a plastic container and after shaving, leave your razor inside – you will be amazed how long it will last!
No more foggy car windows
Put some of the silica bags under your windshield and never wait for your windows to defrost in winter. You’ll save yourself the effort of cleaning the foggy windows by yourself, and also – you’ll be on the road faster.
Continue the lifespan of your make up
This goes for the make -up that’s in powder form. Just put silica gel bags in their environment to make sure they don’t get greasy and ruined.
Save your Jack O’ Lantern
If you put a silica bag inside your jack o’ lantern, you will continue the lifespan of its shell.
Save tour old photographs
Photos are a really precious memory. Too bad they deteriorate with the passing of the time. Put all of your old photos in a box together with a couple of silica bags and save them from dampness and going yellow.
