I Love Not Wasting Things

Whenever I find out that I can use something I normally throw away, I love it. Usually it involves me making extra meals from scraps that would normally find their way into the garbage. Today, however, it’s silica gel bags, and this video has me convinced.



Thanks for that, Business Insider! Dorky American voice-over aside, I will be testing some of those life hacks next time I come across those silica gel bags.

    One of the more eco-friendly ways of recharging those silica units is to lay them out on a dish or pan in a hot attic space. This a bit lower temperature than recommended so it will take days, instead of something like 12 hours at 250F, but the heat is free in the summer.
