Mind you this was in the 50's...
I'd be interested to learn how these ("they fit inside a waxed cardboard box with a shelf to stop them falling to the bottom, the water is attracted and then collects in the bottom") actually work - I can't quite make it out - must be me...
The ones I have are the 100g size.got about 20 of them.
We use the large ones that we get from our local Brico store for about 1€ each, they fit inside a waxed cardboard box with a shelf to stop them falling to the bottom, the water is attracted and then collects in the bottom so they last a long time and seem to absorb many litres of water.....
Useful things to leave in where damp might be a problem - we empty the water out every few weeks.
I thought that most of us have some common sense.

What that video forgets to tell you is that when the silica gel is saturated with moisture it is about as much use as (insert your own metaphor - nuns, the Pope, teapots & etc) until it is dried out again in a warm dry place.
Obviously not located in the area you have been drying out!
I have just bought some big ones to place in the wardrobe and other lockers that have faced into all the driven weather we have had over the last year.
Will obviously when I can get into the van, open top vents and doors to let some extra air sweep through.
So thanks Kev for that. you can now have a turn at the piano.
Hang onto your bags, silica bags that is.
They could be the answer to MoHo dampness, cures flu too
