10 genius ways to reuse silica gel packets

  1. Keep your important documents and memories safe: store family photos, passports and birth certificates in plastic sleeves to keep them protected. Tuck in a few silica sachets to keep them dry
  2. Preserve leather and suede shoes: Pop a gel sachet into each to combat any moisture
  3. Preserve tools: keep tools rust free by keeping a silica sachet in each toolbox or storage box in the shed or garage
