Silica Gel Packs
« on: January 26, 2022, 03:38:06 PM »
Been using the Dry & Dry brand PET Blue packs for a few years, and I think they're great. They're rechargeable by defrost nuking or in the oven (I use the oven at 200 degrees for 2 hours). The packets are clear plastic, and when they turn pink they're full. A couple hours in the oven and they're dark blue again.

I use them in all my gun cases, such as a rifle case where I'll toss 3 packets each in them. They'll work for about 4 months before needing to be recharged. Just some assistance to beat the rust. Very cool.

Thanks for the heads up about this.  I live in a high desert environment where its pretty dry most of the time except for the summer when it can get pretty hot and somewhat sticky so moisture forming on my firearms is not a big issue in my area.
