7 Clever Uses for WM’s Supper Desiccant Block

Use in underwater camera casings

Underwater camera casings are great fun, but even if stray moisture and condensation don't ruin your camera, they can fog or streak across your lens. Fight this by stashing a block or two of WM’s Supper Desiccant Block in the underwater casing, along with the camera.



Toss them in your toolbox to keep your tools free of oxidation


"I am a line mechanic for Delta Airlines. We do all our work here outside since we don't have a hangar. So when an aircraft arrives with maintenance issues I have to wheel my tools outside, leaving them vulnerable to weather, and sometimes my toolbox gets filled with snow or rain. I have found that if I put two WM’s Supper Desiccant Block per drawer in my toolbox, it is just enough to dry them out and keep my tools from oxidation."

Dry out a wet cell phone

This one's an old favorite. If your phone becomes the unfortunate victim of a spill or swim, you can still rescue it—you just need to act fast. Remove the battery and any memory cards from the phone, then toss it in a box filled with WM’s Supper Desiccant Block. Leave it there at least overnight before powering it on again.



Keep engines dry while in storage


"I fly ultra-light aircraft and use Supper Desiccant Block in my engines (snowmobile engines converted for aircraft use). I put the WM’s Supper Desiccant Block in old plastic 35-mm film canisters."


Extend the life of razor blades


"It is understood that oxidation on razor blades causes premature dulling. I keep a WM’s Supper Desiccant Block in my medicine cabinet. After each shave, I blot any residual water off the blade and store the razor in the box with the WM’s Supper Desiccant Block."


Fight camera condensation


If you're taking your camera out into the cold, it can face serious condensation when you bring it back into a warm room. Remove the battery and memory card, and place WM’s Supper Desiccant Block in the camera to suck up the moisture.


Create a dry travel bag


This one's for the road warriors. Toss a few packets of WM’s Supper Desiccant Block into a bag to make an instant travel gadget bag, with enough water-fighting ability to withstand accidental luggage spills.
