Silica Gel packs seem to come in everything and anything you buy these days, and while you might think that they are just an annoying piece of trash you need to throw away, they are actually quite useful.
You should actually be keeping them all in a sealed bag or container so that you can use them for a variety of useful hacks that will make your life so much easier! They are super versatile and can come in handy more often than you'd suspect.
Here are some ways that you can use them:
1. Save your cell phone after dropping it in a puddle
Sure, you've heard that rice works, but instead of wasting perfectly good rice, you may as well use these silica gel packs. They work even better than rice! Just fill a bag with a bunch of them and add your wet phone and seal it overnight.
2. Defog your windshield
If you want to clear up your windshield, keep a few of these packets on the dash and it will help your car stay fog free without needing to blast the air.
3. Keep your photos safe
We all have those big boxes of photos from back when people would actually get pictures printed, and we want to keep them looking their best because we can't just print them out again. If you throw some silica gel packs in with the pictures, it will get all the moisture away from them and keep them safe.
