You recognize these silica gel packets. They often come with a new pair of shoes, a bag or backpack, in pockets of new coats, etc. You know what these are – or, at least you know where to look for them to throw them away. But wait! Don’t throw the gel packs out yet! These seemingly useless little bags are actually pretty handy. They work by absorbing moisture to keep things dry.

Watch the video below to find out the brilliant ways you can use these little packets around the house! For example, you can save your phone from water damage way more effectively than using rice. Instead of putting your phone in a bag of rice, simply put it in a ziplock bag filled with silica gel packs. Leave overnight up to a few days to give time for the moisture to be absorbed. Your phone should now work perfectly! See what other hacks we have below!
