[VIDEO] Why You Shouldn’t Toss Silica Gel Bags
You know what they are but not what they’re called. And you probably throw them out right away. Don’t! We’re talking about those little white square bags that come in shoe boxes. They’re commonly known as silica gel bags. No, you’re not supposed to eat them, but they are nontoxic.
The little beads inside are a powerful desiccant: they absorb many times their weight in moisture to keep items dry. That’s why you’ll also find them in boxes containing expensive equipment like computers and cameras. You may have used similar products, like Damp-Rid, in your closets.
Whatever you do, don’t throw them out until you’ve seen this video.
