You know. like.... the silical packages or whatever that absorb air and moisture in food or stored pills?
I'm gonna put some of my bean and rice stockpiles into buckets and I want to add some of those to keep them safe for longer.
Where do you get them? Like.... what kind of store would have them localy?

I purchased from sorbentsystems.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the 2k cc absorbers.

Here is a link to their Mylar bags page: (20x30 for buckets)

We put food grade plastic bags in our buckets and then drop a little dry ice in the bottom of the bucket (about a fourth of a cup) then pour the grain, beans, or rice over it and leave the lids off till the dry ice evaporates. After that, just tie the plastic bag and install the lid and you are good to go. We've done it this way for fourty years. That said, oxygen absorbers work very well in very humid climates.

Warning: Botulism poisoning may result if moist products are stored in packaging that reduces oxygen. When stored in airtight containers with oxygen absorbers, products must be dry (about 10% or less moisture content).

You can buy them cheap here...
