Desiccant is an example of a survival staple that many people probably do not think about. It absorbs moisture in closed spaces like, food containers, firearm storage, and electronics safes. Using a desiccant can prolong the life of these items for months and maybe even years longer than without desiccant.
- Keep firearms and electronics free from moisture when you store them
- When storing firearms or electronics, store them with some type of water absorbent
- Drywall makes a great water absorbent
“”…here in the US, there is a huge supply of desiccant that you can readily use in a pinch if you can’t get a hold of silica gel.””
