Do you know those packs of silicone gel that you get when you buy a new purse or shoes? They are meant to absorb moisture. So don’t throw them away, collect them and use them in the household. And here’s how!
If you drop your phone in water it’s not all lost yet. Take it out of the water as fast as you can, then take it apart and take out the card. Put if between your collected silicone gel packs and leave it there for a few days. Don’t charge it until you are sure that it’s completely dry because you could cause a short fuse and destroy your phone.
If you want to protect old photos, a journal or diary from your childhood just put packs of silicone gel between the pages. They will keep them dry.
If you or a family member collects post stamps, old money, pictures or napkins, keep them with a few silicone gel packs so you can be sure that moisture doesn’t destroy them.
The purchase agreements for your apartment or car, your birth certificate and other important documents will be safe from moisture if put them next to a few packs of silicone gel.
Things in Boxes
Things that you don’t often use you can put in cardboard or plastic boxes in the attic. To protect them from moisture just throw in a few packets.
Christmas Tree Decorations
You pull them out only once a year, so silicone gel packs will help during the rest of the year.
