When we order new gadgets, new pairs of shoes, or any bags, we get those small silica gel sachets with them. They are not simply added on to contribute to the presentation of the brand new thing, but it is there for a reason. Silica shows desiccant properties, that is it absorbs moisture from its surroundings keeping the area dry and moisture-free. It acts as a drying agent. The directions on it suggest that you have to throw it out, however, it can be brought to use at home and can be used for various purposes. Just be careful of keeping it away from the reach of the kids
Rescue a wet cellphone
Did you ever experience your cell phone in fall in a bucket full of water or a pool? We all know the traditional method of using rice to dry a wet mobile, but the rice kernels can enter the charging connector or earphone jack.
Use silica gel to efficiently dry your phone without causing damage to the ports. Take a bowl and fill it with gel packs. Bury the phone until it’s absolutely surrounded by the silica gel packets. A minimum of 24 hours wait is expected before you switch on the phone
