After-Reading-This-You’ll-Never-Throw-Away-This-Bags-Again…-5-Is-My-FavoriteYou know those little white silica gel bags that come in the box with your brand new heels, purses, and handbags?

We all think of them as pointless at best and annoying at worst. We even consider them toxic. The truth is that there is no poison in them whatsoever. They are filled with a substance called silicon dioxide which shouldn’t be eaten, but it can be very useful around the house. Silica gel is a desiccant, which means that it absorbs and holds water vapor from the surrounding air.

Here is how you can use them:

1.Save your old photos

Old photos usually deteriorate with time, which is really sad because they are the sole reminders of our past and are quite dear to our hearts. Put a couple of silica gel bags in your box of old photos to save them from the dampness that can ruin them.

 

2.Put them between towels

Prevent your towels from getting damp and smelling unpleasantly by putting a few of these in the towel cabinet.

 

3.Make your razors last longer

Instead of leaving your razor around in the bath where it’s always wet put it in a plastic container with a few silica bags inside. It will make it last longer.

 

4.Save your drowned phone

When your phone drops in water and gets all wet instead of putting it in a jar of rice try the same with silica bags. Fill a jar with them and put your mobile in, it will be much more effective.

 

5.No more foggy car windows

I most definitely adore this one, since foggy car windows cause me a lot of problems especially in this damp weather season. This goes to all you drivers out there; it’s a true lifesaver in the winter. Instead of Waiting for the air conditioning to do its job, which in older car models can take forever, put a bunch of these silica gel bags under your windshield from the inside immediately. You’ll see that tomorrow your windows won’t be foggy. It’s the fastest way to stop your windows from fogging up and you’ll save yourself the 10 extra minutes needed to clean them up.

 

6.Put them in your gym bag

These bags’ main purpose is to absorb the extra moisture and protect your shoes. Bacteria mostly thrive in damp and moist environments so they can help you eliminate the dampness and germs from your gym bag. They can also eliminate the foul odor.

 

7.Save your make up

Every women needs to have a bag or two of silica gel in her make up purse to stop the powdery make up from curdling.

 

There you have it, 7 fun and useful tips which can make your life easier. Next time you buy something with silica gel bags in it don’t throw them away, they can be quite useful.
