Blue Pink

How to safely handle and reactivate blue/pink indicating silica gel?

The cobalt chloride that gives it the blue/pink color indicator is a carcinogen. Are they any precautions I should take when handling it (like can it be handled with bare hands) and when heating it in an oven to reactivate it? Will heating it in an oven release some of the cobalt chloride either in a gaseous or minute solid form? Should I get a cheap oven to exclusively heat them?

Thanks a lot in advance!

The best advice I can give you, is get rid of it. They list Cobalt Chloride as a hazardous substance in the UK and must be disposed of as a hazardous chemical. Rules aren't as stiff in the USA against this substance, yet. So it's up to you to decide, but when there are alternatives available (mainly what they use in the UK) why not use the alternative without the Cobalt Chloride and the worry?

Look for the Orange Indicating Silica Gel, this does the same think without the Cobalt Chloride!
