Surely you have ever wondered. Maybe you’re guessing something, but when you really understand what those little bags we find in shoe boxes when we buy a new pair are for, You will never throw them away again…
These sachets contain a material called silica gel or Silicagel. It is a chemical substance with a crystalline appearance and very porous that is considered as one of the products with the highest absorption capacity. At least, of those that are currently known. For this same reason, it is often used to reduce humidity (up to 40%) in enclosed spaces such as cardboard boxes.
So, these sachets can have a life beyond fulfilling their function in storing bags and shoes. For example, in case you spill water on your mobile phone or computer, you can skip the trick of drying it with rice and use the silica. They will be of great help when it comes to getting a quick dry.
However, it is not the only alternative use that we can give it. If you have married or have given a nice bouquet and you want to dry it, these bags will help you to have some beautiful dried flowers. You can use these balls for about 2-3 days (if we exceed this time, they could dry out excessively). You can also use them to save seeds of said flowers or other plants you have at home.
And it is that, you did not know but the possibilities of this product are many because it is a chemical compound that helps metals to be preserved much better. That being the case, you can keep one of these bags in your jewelry box so that your jewelry is better preserved.
In addition, it is also a product capable of neutralize the bad smell. You can put it near the garbage can at home so that the kitchen does not smell so much. Above all, if we have thrown away something that gives off a strong smell.
