How to Reactivate Silica Gel in a Microwave

How to Reactivate Silica Gel in a Microwave | SilicaGelly | Silica Gel Desiccant

Want to reactivate your silica gels?

Just to throw it out there, all our silica gels and desiccants can be reactivated. This is the reason why we include some (if not all) orange indicating beads into the silica gel packets. The main purpose of these orange silica gels are to indicate whether the silica gels have been used (saturated). The way to tell is that the orange beads will turn green.

We do not advise you to reuse silica gels because the process can be troublesome and tedious, but we still want to let you know that our silica gels are indeed reusable.

How to regenerate your silica gels?

A microwave can be used to draw out water from the silica gels and to render it fit to be reused. 

1) Remove silica gel beads from the packaging
2) Place the silica gels in a microwavable container
3) Set the microwave to a medium heat 
4) Heat the silica gels
5) Remove the silica gels and mix with a spoon (Repeat steps 4 and 5 if necessary)

It takes about 6-8 minutes to 1kg silica gel. The beads will turn back to orange once they ready.

Please do this at your own discretion.
