1 gram of silica gel/desiccant = 1 litre of space
Just imagine for your container, how many litres of water would it take to fill it up? If you think 1 litre, then our 1 gram size would be sufficient. If you think maybe 5 litres, then you would need the 5 gram size. As simple as that.
Open the main seal to activate the silica gels/desiccants, place them directly into the space that you would like to dehumidify. That is it!
Storage for your bags, shoes and clothes.
Have bags, shoes or clothes for storage? Place together with some silica gel packets to prevent your clothing/shoes from moulding/turning yellow. Have some items you hardly use and want to keep for long term storage? For greater effect, seal them in a plastic bag and place one packet of silica gel inside, you can ensure they will still look brand new after a year.
Place with your photos and albums.
Keep silica gel packs where ever you store physical copies of your photos and albums to prevent damage due to mold and discoloration.
