silica gel
    #1088678 - 11/26/02 09:40 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Is silica gel a good dessicant? I've read that it absorbs up to 40% it's weight in water, as opposed to drierite which absorbs 10%, yet drierite is recommended in the FAQ and not silica gel. Why?

Silica Gel is a good dessicant although I've never come across drierite here in the UK so can't give any comparison there.

Hope that helps in some way !  :smile:

thanks for the info, I've put about 53 grams of wet mushrooms in a tupperware sitting on top of a paper towel covering a litre of silica gel placed in the bottom. I didn't think the 3 chamber thing would really be required, and i didn't have the tooks to make one anyway. Do you think this will work?

You can get silica gel at your local shoe store, there is a lttle bag in every box.

I find just laying them on the counter in a warm room overnight dries them fine!
