Just though I'd let everyone know that you can often buy silica gel cheap near the cat litter of the big box stores. It's sold as an odour reducer for cat litter. I just bought a 2 lb. bag for $8. Says "Dust free, non-toxic" on the bag, and has the blue indidcator crystals in it. I'm gonna use small double-lock freezer bags and poke a bunch of holes in them with a pin and toss them into my 5 gal buckets. This way I can take the crystals out of the bag and bake them on a cookie sheet when they need it.

2 lbs for $8 ???? .... Wally World sells Fresh Step brand cat litter for $13 for a 10lb bag .... only commonly sold cat litter that is 100% silica gel ...

more expensive silca gel is sold in craft stores (Hobby Lobby) for drying flowers ....

There are two kinds of silica gel. The hard kind that absorbs humidity but not liquid water. And the kind that absorbs liquid water and turns jelly like. This doesn't absorb humidity. If it did, it would be saturated by the time you finished it and would weigh a ton when you bought it.
