BHEESTIE Molecular Beads (TM) contain tiny pores of a precise and microscopic size that are used to specifically target and trap water molecules eliminating moisture from within the sealed BHEESTIE Bag (TM). Our beads are engineered to adsorb water up to 22% of their own weight.
As the humidity of the air contained within the sealed BHEESTIE Bag (TM) decreases, the hidden moisture contained within your electronic device transforms to a gaseous form and mixes with the air in the bag. This process continues until the moisture from your device becomes permanently trapped within the BHEESTIE Molecular Beads (TM). In most cases this takes between 48 and 72 hours. The trick is to keep the bag sealed and the target environment contained.
Unlike rice or silica gel, the BHEESTIE Molecular Beads (TM) continue to adsorb water beyond equilibrium humidity. Silica gel or rice that has absorbed moisture will actually release water into a dry atmosphere. BHEESTIE Molecular Beads (TM) are designed to keep the water molecules trapped within and can actually be used to dry out saturated silica gel and dehumidify rice. (Although our legal team states you shouldn’t do this for your bento leftovers or any rice meant for food consumption.)
