Say you got your ammo for your food Or your guns like I actually make packets to put my gun cabinet Which is actually really easy to do You can find like an old candy tin Poke a bunch of holes in it line it with the coffee filters, and I just filled up with the silica And you know throw in the gun cabinet in a corner somewhere out of the way You can buy packets that will tell you when they need recharge some were kind of pricey and When I’m going to show you is really super cheap way to make your own little silica packets doesn’t matter if you Pack your animal loose Get off Throw a packet you make in one of these bags in each bag or if you you know leave it boxed up You know you can [just] throw a silica packet on the top but you know this method you can make a lot of silica packets and basically you’ll never really ever have to buy or Mess with it again if you want to refuse it can and also you can just recharge But it’s really easy to do doesn’t take that long That’s hot to it shall.

You’re just going to take your coffee filter To meet usually kind of helps to go ahead and kind of give it a quick little cold right there I just have an old scooper that came with the one of my supplements workout supplement tubs, or whatever I just dump that bad boy right in there Technically, I think I’ve seen another video a guy does kind of the same process here making his own stuff of packets and he mentioned It’s like two tablespoons per se ammo can type surface area that you want to keep dry But I just throw in just a big scoop of this and all the day Once you get it in there kind of want to do this a little bit loose. [I’m] loose side Don’t really want everything compacted or tight The more surface area you’ve got for this the probably the better We just got to hold it up like that Take away your twist ties oh And twist the tie. Oh my guard skis as simple as that there you go a silica packets Talking earlier about like gun cabinet stuff like that you can take like a [tin] like this perforate a bunch of holes into it Line it with some coffee filter and literally fill the whole thing up With the silica putting your gun locker in a corner [somewhere] where you know you’re not going to knock it over There’s other things you can get to like Go to like Walmart you go down the aisle or they got skills and stuff. They’ve got like these little greasy pots I forget what they’re called But they have a bunch of perforated holes and a twist on top and the holes are small of that You don’t even have to do [that] call people thing just filled up with the celica I’m sure if you go through like the candle aisle they might even have something there It’s long the same lines, but you know use your imagination Spend a couple bucks buying one or just take a couple minutes and punch a bunch of holes enough Attending that you just have to have lying around but Yeah, here’s a nice cost-effective Really cost effective. I mean compared to making your own of these make it a bigger as as small as you want and You know you don’t [have] a lot of stuff that you really need to store a long term or whatever Eight bucks will definitely go a long way so hope that helps you guys out a how much suggestions throw at the bottom and Thanks for watching you
