Most SILICA GEL desiccants have a color indicator built in. If it is blue then they are ok but if they are pink they will need to be dried. It is easy to "recharge or dry" them. Place them on a metal cookie sheet or something similar then put them in the over with the temp at 250 degrees. Leave them for a couple of hours or see if they change color back to blue. You may have to leave them in the oven all night to get them dry.
There are also clay desiccants. I am not sure how to recharge them, but I presume it would be similar.
Hope this is of some help

I can't wait until I get them so I can use them in the pantry with my the plastic containers. Now I need to find a cheap source for buckets with gasket seal lids! I hate paying shipping to order them, but don't know where to buy them around here.
Thanks Campy and Nyte!

On buckets, many of the free buckets from restaurants/bakeries have gasket-seals on their lids. I find uses for the ones that don't seal as well too tho. Be sure to pry the gasket out when you wash up those frosting buckets or whatever tho.
and yes, you CAN get pickle smell outta the bucket....tho it takes a little work/time.
