Introduction: Scent-Repressing Storage Container
This instructable demonstrates how to build a scent-concealing storage container, intended to subdue the smell of the object(s) that it contains. This is an extremely simple instructable, but so far it seems to be quite effective. I've been testing it for several days now, and the scent of the object is nearly undetectable to the average human nose.
Step 1: Materials
You will need: -Smelly Object -Quart-sized plastic ziplock bag -Rubber-band(s) -Silica gel packet(s) -Zippable glasses case or pencil case, or similar small container -Gallon-sized plastic ziplock bag (optional) WARNING: The ingestion or consumption of a silica gel packet or its contents can result in sickness or death. Keep all silica gel and silica gel packets and all similar substances out of the reach of children, animals, and the mentally disabled. Be sure to properly dispose of silica gel. Under no circumstances should a silica gel packet be opened or ruptured.

Step 2: Bundle It Up
Bundle up the smelly object by placing it in a quart-sized plastic ziplock bag, sealing the bag, rolling it up, and wrapping one or more rubber-bands around the rolled-up ziplock bag.
Step 3: Pack It Up With Silica Gel
Pack the bundle you made in the precious step into the glasses case (or another similar container) along with one or more silica gel packet(s).
Step 4: Seal It Up
Close, zip, or otherwise seal the chosen container. For added scent-concealment, place the chosen object in a gallon-sized ziplock bag, and proceed by wrapping up the gallon-sized ziplock bag with rubber-bands, creating a bundle as in Step 2.
