Since I was a kid, I have been throwing these little silica gel packets away. If I knew back then what I know now about silica gel, I would have a whole house full of these babies! In layman’s terms silica gel soaks up moisture.

I am sure you have many of these Silica Gel packets from a new purse, shoes, headache medicine, beef jerky or any other random item.
