Just use a fan. If you can spare a couple bucks...go to Walmart and buy some deccicant.

Here's what I do.

I use a small plastic container and put some baked rice in it. I drop my shrooms there and fan them for 4-5 days. I then put them in baggies with, again, some baked rice in it and store the bags in an airtight glass jar. 2 weeks later, they are bone dry and can be preserved for many months I guess..

I found that baked rice is a good alternative to desiccant. Don't underestimate this shit!

Hehe no.

  Just plain old rice that you put in a baking pan and bake at 350F for about 30 minutes.  Plain old rice is white.  30 min baked rice gets brown,  that's what you want.

  Bake rice can absorb humidity.  It's a good alternative.

Don't know if this is "the cheapest" depends on what your drying. My dawg uses a large chip and dip bowl that is seperated into 6 segements. He cut the bottom off so he had a bottomless sectioned tray. Then filled a small rubbermaid with ice melt. Put down a layer of screen, and in front of a box fan. 2 days max here.

Yeah I just got back from a trip the other day (a real trip) and stayed at a Best Western-I went downstairs and there was rice in the salt shaker near the breakfast shit. My step-mom asked some old woman working there what it was for-apparently it keeps the moisture out. So yeah-prolly works fairly well.

$5.00 or less method ( prefered method )

go to lowes or home depot and buy a $5 box of damp - rid and put in bottom of tupperware container, put shrooms on top of a grate or screen ( not sitting directly on top of damp-rid ) and they will be dry in 5 or 6 days. check the FAQ'S it's all there. my method is the no muss no fuss way, the faq's will give you better info.

Even easier than that is just going to Wally World and getting the premade Damp-Rid trays. They have a layer of damp-rid in a filter with a tray already attached to collect that nasty brown h2o that seeps out of the damp-rid as you dry the shrooms. Just put the tray in the bottom of a tupperware, put a screen over it and heap on the shrooms. Place the whole mess in front of the fan for about 2-3 days and you're set. Cost ~ $4.

I've let shrooms just sit out before in my room (with a dehumidfier running) and they dryed out quickly

I was looking into a food dehydrator, but they all use heat. Did you find one with an option to turn the heat off? Which one was it? Or did you take the heating element out?
