I'm sure that all of us game collectors are a bit worried when it comes to our game collections staying in as pristine condition as possible, so I have a question that hopefully no one thinks is strange:
Are there any long term effects from using "silica gel" packets for storage usage on video game items?
Specifically, if I wanted to put silica gel packets in the boxes that carried cartridges, consoles and even those newer DVD style snap cases, will that possibly damage the contents?
They have these silica gel packets packed in with food items and clothes, so I personally don't see a problem with using them, but I just wanted to get the opinions, expertise and technical knowledge of this community.
Asking a question like this at gamefaqs or cheapassgamer would probably yield undesired results.
