    Default Question on Dry Box

    Hi guys... I had a question on Dry Box. My dad gave me his dry box which has many small moth(dunno how to spell) ball right at the bottom of the box. It is a 15 yrs old dry box.. I would like to check with you guys out there whether do I need to change the small moth balls inside? If need to change, where can i buy it? Or do you think it can still use it? Thank you in advance. =)

    15 years? I don't think moth balls last that long, should be silica gel and yes, if its as long as you say it is, you do need to change them. Also check if the rubber sealing of the dry box is cracking or cracked, that would mean that your box would not be air tight.
