Don’t Throw These Out. These Are 6 Awesome Uses For Silica Gel Packets.

image via –

Silica gel packets come in many of the packages, boxes, and things that we order online or buy from the store. Shoes and purses often have a packet tossed in them and even some bagged foods, like jerky, come with a pack of the little beads. They serve a very important purpose and are there to adsorb excess moisture from their surroundings, thus keeping the goods they’re packaged with dry and damage free. If you thought you read part of the previous sentence incorrectly, you didn’t, because adsorbs is the proper word for what silica gel does.

It’s a desiccant, which means that it adsorbs and collects moisture on it’s surface, rather than absorbing it into itself as a towel or sponge would do. Silica’s porous surface works to pull in moisture because water molecules have a lot of places to grab onto and just one of the beads can hold almost half its weight in water, that’s a lot!

We often toss silica packets out after we receive them with whatever they came with, but you should start saving them instead because they have a lot of great alternative uses. This video covers a bunch of the ways silica packets can make life easier and below are some of the best uses for them.

1) Keep car windows fog free- fog and moisture build up on car windows is dangerous and annoying, to diminish and prevent it simply place a few silica gel packets around your car and near the front and rear windows to keep fog from building up.

2) Prolong the life of expensive razors- leaving razors near or in the bathroom and shower can greatly diminish how long they last by dulling the blades. Make them last longer by wiping off the razor and storing it in a container with 4-5 silica packets.

3) Save a water damaged phone- if you ever drop your cell phone in water or it somehow manages to get wet, try this; remove the battery and memory card from the phone then place it overnight in a container filled with silica packets.

4) Safe keep old photos- preserve your memories and keep them dry by tossing a few packets of silica gel in the box they’re stored in.

5) Keep pet food fresh- pet food seems to always get kind of mushy and soggy when its kept in the bag it came in. To avoid this, store food in a separate container and tape silica packets to the underside of the lid, your pets will thank you!

6) Prevent rust- tools often take a beating and many end up covered in rust. If you toss a few silica gel packs in your tool box it helps keep them in good, rust-free condition and makes them last longer.

She Drops Hydrogen Peroxide In Her Ears 3x Per Week For a Month. The Reason Is Unexpectedly GENIUS!

image via –

Hydrogen peroxide is something that most people keep on hand at home. The bottled solution can usually be found in the medicine cabinet or stored under bathroom sinks and lasts for years. While people tend to only use it when they need to clean small cuts or scrapes, there are many other ways it can be utilized that go beyond first-aid.

The health and beauty, cleaning, and disinfecting tips that follow below are resourceful ways to save money and clean up around your house. All you need is the standard 3% hydrogen peroxide concentration, which can be found in any pharmacy or store. Depending on what you wish to do, you may also need a few other basic things, like a spray bottle, baking soda or water. Either way, these are all very simple and effective:

Clean stains on tile or stone counters- In a bowl combine hydrogen peroxide with flour until a thick, pasty consistency is achieved. Apply the paste over the stains so they are completely covered and then place a layer of plastic wrap atop it. Allow it to sit overnight while it works its magic, then remove and clean away the paste. The stains should be gone or vastly improved.

Remove wine stains from carpet- Mix together equal parts hydrogen peroxide and liquid soap. Apply it to the stained area and let it soak in for at least one minute. Using a towel, carefully blot it up while trying your best to avoid rubbing it in, before washing the spot with warm water.

Clean windows- Simply spray peroxide on the glass and wipe it off with a clean cloth. This works for other types of glass beyond windows that you may wish to clean. Clean humidifier- Pour a little bit of peroxide in with the water and run it through as normal. Any mold and bacteria that may have been present in the machine will be killed. Clean shower curtains- If your shower curtain and liner are safe to put in the wash you can treat them prior to washing by spraying hydrogen peroxide on them liberally. It will help to remove any mold, mildew, and soap scum more effectively.

Hydrogen peroxide in ear- To clean your ears and remove wax build up, soak a cotton ball with peroxide. Tilt your head to the side and gently squeeze the cotton ball to apply it into your ear. Wait a few minutes while gravity does the work for you before tilting your head the other way and draining it out.

Clean makeup brushes- In a cup mix equal parts hydrogen peroxide and water together. Place the brushes in the solution for at least five minutes, remove and rinse. Do this weekly to keep your makeup brushes clean and free of bacteria. Disinfect sponges- Soak dirty, smelly sponges or rags in peroxide for 20-30 minutes, then rinse and dry them off. Disinfect cutting boards- Spray on a layer of peroxide and wipe them clean.

Brighten whites- Instead of bleaching white clothing, soak them in hydrogen peroxide for about 30 minutes to remove stains and yellow discolored spots. Wash immediately after soaking and only use this on white clothes because peroxide will remove color!

Toothache relief- Mix equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide before applying it to the infected area. Try your best to hold the solution in place for at least a minute, then rinse your mouth out. This also works for canker sores, simply swish the solution around for a minute or so and then rinse.

Clean and disinfect toothbrushes- Soak the bristle end of the brush in hydrogen peroxide for a few minutes, then rinse it off thoroughly under hot water.

Whiten nails- Mix together peroxide and baking soda into a paste and then cover your nails. Keep it on for three minutes before rinsing nails clean with warm water.

In addition to the above uses, hydrogen peroxide is also an excellent, non-toxic, and cost effective way to get rid of mold. Mold is one of the most stubborn things to effectively remove. The nasty spores can infect and spread rapidly through an otherwise clean home and it thrives in damp, dark, wet places.

Some types of mold are extremely unhealthy, and potentially deadly, to breathe in or be around. The accompanying video shows the best way to deal with mold removal using hydrogen peroxide, so if you’re dealing with the tricky stuff you’ll definitely want to check it out.

Here’s how to do it; Pour some hydrogen peroxide into a spray bottle, apply it directly onto the moldy spots, wait at least 10 minutes, then wipe it off. This should work well on a variety of surfaces, and since it’s an antibacterial and anti-fungal solution it works fast to kill the mold spores.

These lesser known uses for hydrogen peroxide are handy resources to keep in mind because you never know when you may need to use them. Hopefully they will end up saving you time and money now or in the long run!

The video you are about to watch below, will actually cover 20 different benefits, in depth, only some of which are discussed in this article.

FOOT OR FINGERNAIL FUNGUS, is a very uncomfortable condition that, in feet (known as athlete’s foot) can result in rashes that burn in between the toes and on the feet and between the toes. In both hands and feet it can also occur under the nail bed, causing constant pain.

Soaking fingers and feet in Apple cider vinegar for 10 to 30 minutes daily, until the fungus is gone, is one of the best solutions. The bowl of vinegar can be slightly diluted with water, if it causes any burning sensation.

An UPSET STOMACH can be, somewhat surprisingly, calmed down by a small amount of apple cider vinegar diluted with water or apple juice. This is particularly useful when the cause of the stomach pain is due to a bacterial infection, as apple cider vinegar is a potent enemy of bacteria.

Adding 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to one cup of cold water, 2-3 times per week will ADD SHINE TO YOUR HAIR. The video will also discuss how it treats dandruff.

This next one amazed me! According to “Greatist”, adding 10 ounces of vinegar to 10 gallons of water can make your garden grow…by spraying and KILLING the ROOTS of WEEDS!

GETTING RID OF HEARTBURN with one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and a glass of water, certainly seems counter-intuitive. If you have acid stomach why would adding acid help? Well, it turns out that it, in fact works, by balancing out low acids in the stomach.

There is nothing worse than the horrible grip of a LEG CRAMP that wakes you out of your sleep like a claw. According to “Reader’s Digest”, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of honey mixed into a glass of warm water gets rid of the cramp!
