You can get 1 lb and 5 lb bags at craft stores like Michael's and JoAnns fabrics,it is used for drying flowers. it also comes in small packets in every electronic thing you buy. It also comes in Beef Jerky packages. Don't throw them out when you buy something new. keep them for an occasion like this.
