Hot to Reuse Silica Gel Powder (Reactivation):

Warning: If overheat (oven or Full power microwave oven), silica powder will lose the ability to hold moisture.

Silica gel powder can be "reactivated" by baking in the oven and using lowest power settings in the microwave. I also bought some of the little humidity indicator cards so I can monitor the humidity in my containers.

  1. Oven: Place in the conventional oven (electric) for 0.5 to 1 hours at 100-130 Celsius (DO NOT exceed 140 Celsius).
  2. Oven; Depending on the beads' condition, they may take shorter than the recommended time.
  3. Microwave: Microwave for about 7 to 12 minutes at lowest heat mode, avoid overheating, best to microwave 3-4 mins, 1-2 minutes break and repeat couple of times.
  4. Sun Dry: Place desiccant sand evenly spread on a large tray, place it on the direct sunlight. Sun dry may NOT work well to remove 100% moisture from silica, best to use oven meathod.
