Large lime desiccant packet from Kurosawa Lime Industry Co., LTD printed in blue. Image captions read “do not open”, “do not eat”, “do not make wet” and “keep out of children’s reach”. Shipped as a drying agent in a package of nori (seaweed). This packet was a gift from Sayuri.
This is a 900-gram hydrosorbent silica gel box and the largest specimen in our image collection as of the posting date. Inside the box is a drawstring bag containing silica gel beads. Designed to protect up to 66 cubic feet of space from moisture, my friend and former co-worker Ryan uses it to protect his gun case from moisture. On the bottom of the box is a moisture indicator card.
