Both displace moisture cutting down on bacteria. Because, of the granules , sugar is slighly abrasive therefore honey works better.

Electronics are fine but this clad collar with cloth in the middle is horrendous for heavy usage.
Their roller collar replacements are better/easier if not in 100% condition but still poor.
Collars have to be so thin to pass thru/around device that I cant find a good replacement?
