People believe that the silica bags we often find in shoe boxes are toxic but they’re wrong! There isn’t any type of poisonous substance in those bags. Silica bags are filled with silicone dioxide, which you shouldn’t eat, but you can use them for many other things in your house. So stop throwing away the silica bags and re-use them for something else!
Here’s how to use the silica bags:
1. Place Them Between Your Towels
By putting a few silica bags between your towels, you’ll prevent your towels from getting damp and smelling unpleasantly.
2. Put Them in Your Gym Bag
The main purpose of these bags is to protect your shoes and absorb moisture. Putting the silica bag in your gym bag will eliminate germs and moisture from your gym bag. It also eliminates the unpleasant odor.
3. Save Your Drowned Phone
Your phone got all wet and you don’t know what to do? Fill a big jar with silica bags and put the phone in the jar. The bags will take the moisture out of the phone.
4. Make Your Razors Last Longer
To make your razors last longer, don’t leave them around your bath tub where is always wet. Simply keep them in a jar filled with silica bags.
5. Save The Old Photos
Unfortunately, photos fade over time, which is really sad. Place a few silica bags in the boxes where you keep your old photos to protect them from dampness.
6. Save Your Makeup
Put a few silica bags in your makeup bag to prevent curdling of the powdering makeup.
