silica gel fun

What happens when you mix Silica Gel with water? Silica Gel, these little pebbles inside of food packagings (like my emtpy Sushinori bag here) which are supposed to absorb any moisture…



…well….it starts to react with the water and jumps up and down (just like popcorn!):



“Silica Gel has been the favored desiccant of the government and industry since World War II. It prevents rust, corrosion, tarnish, oxidation, mildew, fungus, mold, odor, spoilage, spotting, toning, and stains. Silica Gel is an extremely important substance in the world today, which makes it especially unfortunate that so few people give it the respect it deserves.” (source)
