As you're probably aware, silica gels are great for absorbing moisture, in fact they're the best items around for this purpose. As bad odour is formed due to nasty bacteria that is around, silica gels will absorb unwanted moisture such as sweat, therefore ousting bacteria and removing any lingering stench. Just place a few packets of desiccants into your shoe box, gym bag, clothes cabinet, boxes and it will help to eliminate the smell!
Our distribution centers are cleaning surfaces according to CDC guidelines and all workers are implementing “social distancing” practices to be extra safe. Everyone who can, is working from home. If you’re concerned about the safety of receiving a box in your home, the World Health Organization has more info on the topic here.
