Pour some Dri Splendor into a bucket or other container that is large enough for the flowers or other items you want to dry. Dri Splendor is often sold in 5-lb. bags at craft stores, such as Crafts, Etc.! (see Resources).
Put your flowers into the bucket filled with silica gel, making sure the flowers are completely immersed in the beads.
Let your flowers dry for a few days. The larger the bouquet, the longer the drying process.
Fish your dried flowers out of the Dri Splendor--carefully, to avoid breakage. Gently shake off the excess silica gel.
Pour the Dri Splendor back into its package or into a zip-top plastic bag. Dri Splendor is reusable, making it an economical household item.
Things You Will Need
- Bucket Flowers
- If you have a cat and suddenly run out of cat litter, you can use silica gel as a replacement until you can get to the store. You can also store your garden tools in Dri Splendor to prevent rusting.
