33 CHEAP HACKS TO SAVE YOUR MONEY

CHEAP HACKS

Though silica gel packets clearly instruct you to throw them away (and not eat them), you can actually keep them for a variety of unexpectedly practical uses around the home. Silica gel is a desiccant, a substance that absorbs moisture, which makes these packets perfect for keeping things extremely dry and moisture-free.

Commonly found in bags of beef jerky, dried seaweed containers, vitamin bottles, and in boxes of new shoes, silica gel packets can help rescue your wet cell phone, slow down the tarnishing of your silverware and tools, prolong the life of your jack-o’-lantern, and keep your gym locker from smelling funky.

The great thing about silica gel packets is that you can recharge them in the oven if their moisture-sucking capabilities are beginning to run low. Simply spread the silica gel (removed from paper packets) on a cookie sheet and bake at 250°F for a few hours. Afterwards, place the silica gel in an airtight container until you’re ready to use them again.
