Can't find a dessicant. Alternative ways to dry efficiently?
    #1505074 - 04/29/03 05:57 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Joey Joe Joe Shabadu lives in Toronto and has been all over stores trying to find a dessicant, with no luck. In about 2-3 weeks his shrooms will be fully grown (amazonians), and he needs a good way to try them. He has a small fan to fan-dry for the first 24 hours, but can he continue with this method until they are full dry?

Any help, suggestions, or comments are greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hey... This bum I met in your area couldn't find ANY dessicant either.... Know where he finally found it?

White Rose: In the flower drying section....

30$ for almost 2 kilos... And you can microwave it once it's used up so you can reuse it over and over again....

if you have a credit card, go to www.drierite.com

what you want is regular drierite, 10-20 mesh. 1lb should do.

if not - fan will work if you let them dry for a week

What stores are you looking in? Dessicant is actually fairly easy to find. Drierite is availabal at most hardware stores. Walmart carries Drierite also. You might even be able to find some in a grocery store.

If you can't find any dessicant your next best bet would be to air dry the shroom, or use a fan. Dehydrators work well also.

Ah, WhiteRose...Joey hasn't thought of that one yet (weird...the store is like a 5 minute drive from his place).

I guess now he can fan dry for a day, then make a container to finish drying them out with the dessicant.

Thanks for the info guys.

I searched the whole store and found nothing.

I wouldn't know. And the people working there aren't much help either. Not only do they not know what the word dessicant means, they stare at you like morons when you try to explain it. Well, best for me not to turn this into an angry rant, everyone knows what I mean.

The three wallmarts I have visited do not carry it. I found it at Lowes.

Air drying works for my ferret. He gets a rubbermaid container, puts a wire basket in there, and a wire rack on top (this allows air to be pulled from the bottom) Line the bottom of the rubbermaid with paper towels. A 2 section window fan set on top at "high" in a dark dry room gets them dry in about 2 days, putting a room dehumidifyer in the same room (or use a closet) gets them in about one day..

Stick it inside an air conditioner where the air comes out. Super dry air.

Most grocery stores carry Damp Rid. You can find it with the cleaning supplies.

Epsom salts. Bake them in the oven until dry like when reusing any other dessicant and use like any other dessicant. Can be found at pharmacies, supermarkets, etc. Chemically known as MgSO4. It's non-toxic which is a plus, but still try not to ingest it, it's a laxitive. It's usually in a paper milkcarton type of container.

Calcium Chloride is better. It's sold in the auto supply area to melt snow and ice.

although not from experience (cause i use calcium chloride=ice melt) i hear its the same oven heating thing. and for downward spiral, ice melt is defineltly available and works just as well as one of those dessicants u might have to get online.

P.S.-kitty litter silica gel pellets work fine too, just not as fast but with less maintenance
