| Dave, I think the silica puts the moisture the same place the dryer puts one of my socks from time to time. |
Nope. That's not what happens at all Mark.
See, as we've seen, the moisture stored within the silica packets can undergo an explosive remoisturization. So don't go around stabbin' them with pointy objects. You never know when the absorbed moisture will be released...
Now, as to the whole dryer/sock thing, I have a theory. Based upon my observations, I'm always out a couple of socks. BUT, I always have far too many coat hangers.
So, logically speaking, it's obvious to me that socks are the larval form of coat hangers, and the heat of the dryer causes the metamorphosis into their adult form.
