Desiccant
    #1311335 - 02/16/03 10:01 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Couple of questions about desiccant and preserving mushrooms.

1. Does desiccant loose it's efficiency? For example that packet that came with my coat. Will it still work after 12 months?
2. Where would you typically buy desiccant?
3. Is there anymore information on the Honey preserving method? How common is it used? How does that work?

Thanks. I appreciate any help. As you know I have a growkit which is behaving it's self and working well for me. The next natural stage is to know what to do with these mushrooms.

Thanks.  :wink:

Once it has absorbet the ammaxium amount of water, it stops working, yes.

Look in tesco ext for it in the cleaning chemical area it comes in these handy window sill container to stop humiderty build up on windows.A refill is about ?2 but they work for a while before you need a refill.Most places do it b&q homebase anyhardware shop.
