How many times have you chucked away those little silica bags that we find in almost every newly bought item?
How many times have you not actually even realised they were in your new package?
Perhaps they’re still lurking there now as we speak.
You may have thought the bags were useless once the product was out of transit, and the big DO NOT EAT on them might have freaked you out enough to bin them instantly.
But while you must of course never eat the gel, and the bags MUST be kept away from babies and animals (mainly because they are a choking hazard), the contents of the bags are not actually toxic.
The silica gel bags are filled with a substance called silicon dioxide, a non-toxic inert desiccant that has the power to dry out moisture.
So, it turns out we should be paying more attention to these tiny little bags.
Because, apparently, there’s a tonne of uses for them that you might never even have known about.
Here are the best ways you can use silica bags around the house:

You can save your drowned phone
It turns out rice isn’t the only way to save a phone you may have accidentally dropped down the toilet. Filling up a bowl with silica bags is apparently ’10 times more effective than rice’.

Save precious memories
Putting silica bags in a box of old photos will save them from any dampness – which can really ruin a lovely photo you wished to save forever to look back on over the years.

Protect your make-up
Putting a bag or two in your makeup bag will stop your powder-based makeup from going claggy and difficult to apply.

Put them in your gym bag to eliminate odour
The silica will absorb the excess moisture in your gym shoes after a workout – which is particularly handy since many of us go to the gym then leave our kit in the bag for the rest of the day. Or week. Bacteria thrives well in a moist environment, so by eliminating dampness the silica bags will help keep your gym-bag germ- and whiff-free. A win/win for all.

Keep your bath towels from smelling
Putting a few of these bags in between your bath towels can help prevent dampness and the smell that comes with it – leaving your bathroom smelling of nothing but air freshener and good times.

Keep your car windscreen clear
Pop a few on the dashboard to prevent moisture build-up that causes condensation on the inside of the windscreen. In winter, it will also help prevent freezing on the inside. May take a few days to become fully effective, so be patient.

Keep jewellery clean and shiny
Moisture leads to tarnishing and discolouration of silver. A couple of bags in your jewellery box will slow down the process.

8. Silica gel can also be taken out of the package and consumed with garri and real cold water in place of peanuts.

9. Silica gel can also be used if you run out of noodle spices.



Warning: Do NOT try this at home. You will not live to tell about the taste.
