So I put together a cabinet/shelf thing for our conference room today. Looks really nice. We also added some nice new leather chairs to replace our old ones (that would commonly just “fall” to the lowest height, giving the person seated a good ride). Both items came with those little packets of Silica gel.
Now each packet said clearly on it, “Silica Gel. Do Not Eat.” I’m sorry, I’m not trying to be mean, but do we really need that? I mean, c’mon. Who buys a new pair of shoes and thinks, “Wow, it came with some candy!” It’s Gel. You just don’t eat it. And if you’re dumb enough not to know that, then eat it. It can’t make you any worse off.
Great site dedicated to Silica Gel here.
