Geek Tip: Use Silica Gel to Absorb Condensation on Your Gadgets

Anyone who's dropped their cell phone into a pool or toilet or worse (yikes!) knows that gadgets + water = not cool.
I've told you how to fix your submerged gadgets with rice (it totally works, BTW), but I have another piece of advice regarding the big, bad moisture monster.

To prevent damage to your tech from condensation or light moisture (especially good for damp bags in rainy weather or humid areas), keep packets of silica gel in your gadget bag. This is especially important for cameras and lenses.

Oh, and those silica packets? They come with just about every pair of shoes you buy.
