Silica gel?Desiccant
    #1952206 - 09/25/03 09:08 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

the title is a little misleading but i was at an autosupplies store recently and i was out back getting the parts i needed when i noticed they had huge bags of what was labeled silica sand, its used for sand blasting.
anyway for a huge bag it was really cheap.
does anyone know if silica sand has the same absorbant properties as silica gel?or is it too fine?


thanks

Silica sand is not a desiccant. It's used for sand blasting. Go to a big hardware store; in the paint department you'll likely find DampRid. It's cheap and does the job.

Good luck.

Upon advice from GregHimself, I purchased the Silica Cat litter at Safeway some weeks ago, and it has served me quite well since.
