They’re the tiny packets that come with new shoes and bags, to absorb moisture and keep the product dry while it’s waiting to be sold.

And now that you’ve got them anyway, you might as well find some other uses for them. We trawled the net searching for useful tips:

  • Just a few in your sweaty gym bag will prevent bacteria growth and bad smells.
  • Keep linen closets dry.
  • Accidently dropped your smartphone into the water. The silica gel can be used in exchange for rice, if you need to fix a wet phone.
  • A few pieces of silica gel in a bag will keep everything dry including your makeup and travel bags.
  • The silica gel can also be used to dry flowers faster.
