These bags are often found in shoe boxes and are filled with silicon dioxide or silica. Most people find these silica bags useless and often annoying.

However, these bags are a lot more useful than you might think. Actually, you should keep them, because if you throw them you will make a mistake.

They are not useless nor toxic, but very practical and beneficial, instead.

1. Put them in Your Wardrobe

Putting these bags in your wardrobe you will prevent the spread of moisture. Furthermore, you can prevent the unpleasant smell that goes hand in hand with moisture.

2. Prolong the Shelf-Life of Your Makeup

By placing a few of these bags in your makeup case and you will keep your makeup longer by preventing the moisture in your powder makeup.

3. Restore Your Water-Damaged Phone

It sounds suprising and incredible, but silicon dioxide is actuall able to restore your water-damaged phone. In case you face a situation like this, just put the phone among four to five silica gel bags, and they will absorb the moisture and dry the phone.

4. Keep Your Workout Gear Dry

Because silica absorbs moisture, you should always keep several silica bags in your training bag along with your workout gear, so that you prevent bacteria proliferation. They will also help you get rid of the bad odour and keep your bag nice, dry and clean.
