We recently started using an Himalayan salt block. We cleaned it as per the directions, and the storage said to scrub it, dry it, let it air dry, and store it in an airtight container.
It seems clear that these storage directions are intended to make sure we keep the block as dry as possible. I thought it would be even better to toss a silica pack or two into the airtight container, since silica packs help keep whatever is in their container dry. The instructions certainly don't suggest doing this, presumably because silica packs aren't common items to keep around. (If it matters, I scavenged this one from a bag of jerky we had eaten.)
Is there anything wrong with this idea? My understanding was that the silica packs keep their silica all inside the packet, and draw the moisture into the packet, and that it shouldn't interact with the salt block at all, but there's a fine line between food chemistry and magic for me.
Should I toss a silica packet in to the container that has my salt block?
