Silica, or silicon dioxide (SiO2), is the same material found in quartz. The gel form contains millions of tiny pores that can adsorb and hold moisture. Silica gel is essentially porous sand.
silica gel is a desiccant -- it adsorbs and holds water vapor


‘Recharge’ your silica gel sachets
After a while your gel sachets might stop being as effective as they once were. This is because they have reached the maximum amount of moisture they can absorb. The good news is, they can be ‘recharged’.

Silica gel can adsorb about 40 percent of its weight in moisture and can take the relative humidity in a closed container down to about 40 percent. Once saturated, you can drive the moisture off and reuse silica gel by heating to 140 C for approx 3 hours or choose a warm, dry day and lay the gel packets outside in the sun for a few hours. Then they are good to go again.

Whichever method you use, allow to cool and store the gel sachets in an airtight container until you are ready to use them again.



Some other typical uses for Silica Gel

Store in camera bags. Silica gel will absorb moisture to keep your lens from fogging or streaking, especially after you've been snapping photos in cold or wet conditions.

Use Silica Gel in your toolbox. The gel will absorb excess moisture and help keep your tools rust-free

Dry out electronic items such as cell phones, wireless microphone transmitter/receiver, hearing aids etc. Remember after the device has gotten wet, do not turn it back on! Pull out the battery and memory card and put the device in a container filled with several packs. Leave it in there at least overnight. Note that if your item has been dropped in salt water the Silica Gel will dry out the item, but it will not remove the salt, which will cause corrosion.

Moisture can wreak havoc with paper. Use Silica Gel with your important documents such as photosor personal doscuments
