I purchased a couple of these Dessicant Packs. There is a dark green dot on the lid. There is nothing orange as described. Is the aluminum tin supposed to be opened? After several months of use, I placed it in an oven overnight at 250 degrees, and nothing changed as far as I could tell. The dot is still dark green. There are no instructions whatsoever on how to use what appears to be such a simple product.
Asked by: David
As you already know, the placing the pack in the oven for 3 hours at 300 deg, the pellets will turn orange, telling you its recharged.

I Don’t Have A Oven but Is it gonna work if I let them dry in direct sunlight?
Asked by: Jc
You can use a food dehydrator to dry out your Ruggard Desiccant Silica Gel Packs, I like the food dehydrator better then a oven. You need to be sure to use the high temperature setting on your dehydrator.

Asked by: Roger
No, you do not have to activate it since it was never used. Once you see the changing of the color, that is when you want to put them in the oven.
