I am at a loss in finding the small silica gel packets for the interior of my housing. Anyone have any suggestions?

go to "Search" and type in "silica" and you will get a bunch of threads relating to sources. Set the date for "Any Date". TedJ

Go to your local pharmacist. They have plenty that come in the bottles of pills. Ask them to put them aside and you will have plenty within a week.

I am fortunate to have a number of clients that are pharmacies and they gladly obliged.

Also, shoe stores!! They are frequently packed in the cardboard boxes with shoes, and also inside of purses!!!

And best of all, they're free!!
