Would any of you possibly have seen anywhere which sells the sachets of Silica Gel (like you often find packed in items like cameras, MP3 players etc etc).
I'm looking to buy some to keep with my dried fish foods (flake, granules, sticks etc) to help reduce the amount of dampness which always seems to 'infiltrate' containers once opened - invariably spoiling them before they can be fully used.

I'm almost positive that i've seen silica gel for sale in arts and crafts shops before. Not sure if they come in the little sachets or 1 big container but might be worth a shot to call up a few craft stores?

I was wanting some of that for camera bags.

How about shoe shops....where people don't want to take the box.

Radionics do boxes of 50 packets for €35+V.
Part no:601-041. To re-charge them, pop into a warm (110-120) oven for an hour.

Got two bags of the sachets from 7day shop about a year ago, to keep with camera lenses. They were pretty cheap, the postage was the dear bit.

Just a thought but why not try some of the big clothing retailers like Dunnes or Pennys and the like? Their bound to have some lying around in boxes or bags and no doubt some decent skin behind a name tag will help you out.

I work in a retail shop and throw tons of them out. Can't move without tripping over them in the stockroom. I can grab as many as anyone wants and give them out? PM me.
