When you buy new sneakers or shoes there are few bags in the box. Probably many of you throw them in the trash. But you are making big mistake because are very useful around the house. These bags are filled with a substance called silicon dioxide. This non – toxic inert desiccant will dry out anything around.
Here are some uses of these bags:
Put Them Between Towels
You can put few of these bags in the towel cabinet and in that way you will prevent your towels from getting damp and smelling unpleasant.
Put Them In Your Gym Bag
These bags are great when it comes to absorbing any extra moisture and protection of the item they are added to from growing bacteria or mold is the main purpose of these little packets. So, you can add one of these guys to your gym bag and they will eliminate dampness and germs. In the same time will freshit up because bacteria thrive in damp and moist environments. They can even remove a very foul odor.
Save Your Drowned Phone
You should not despair if you drop your new phone in water and it gets wet. Try the same with silica bags instead of putting it in a jar of rice. It will be much more effective if you fill a jar with them and put your mobile in.
No More Foggy Car Windows
We recommend you to put a bunch of these silica gel bags under your windshield from the inside immediately instead of waiting for your windows to defog, which in older car models can take forever. Probably this is the fastest way to stop your windows from fogging and you’ll see that tomorrow your windows won’t be foggy. This will save you the 10 extra minutes that you need to clean them up.
Save Your Jack O’ Lantern
You can add a silica bag in the inside of your jack – o – lantern, and in that way you will extend its shelf life significantly. Nobody wants to smell a rotting pumpkin breaking down on the porch in the fall.
Save Your Old Photos
We all have old photos that evoke our memories every time we see them. Unfortunately, with time they usually deteriorate. In order to prevent that, in the box with old photos put a few silica gel bags to save them from the dampness that can ruin them.
Save Your Make Up
In your make up purse put one or two bags of silica gel and prevent the powdery make up from curdling
Make Your Razors Last Longer
In a plastic container put your razor, together with a few silica bags inside instead of leaving it around in the bath where it’s always wet. It will make it last longer.
