Question on DampRid dessicant
    #2306943 - 02/05/04 11:34 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, so I took the advice you guys gave me on my last post and went out and bought some DampRid dessicant. If you wanna see which kind i got click here, http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.a...Y-PLST-0-BRAND. As you can see, its basically a cylinder type container w/ a lid, and inside of it there like a holster witih holes that is elevated a couple inches fromt the bottom. I put about an inch of the damprid beads on the bottom of the jar and threw my shrooms in the holder then put the lid on. Will this be sufficient enough? Sorry for posting such a lame ?, but wasnt sure when i read shroomgod's tek on dessicants :P

I haven't had any good luck with DampRid, honestly, I just reccomend fan drying them. I think it was just a waste of money, really.

It's amazing how dry Damp-Rid gets 'em.  And quickly too, as long as they're relatively dry from air/fan drying.  When ya take 'em out they are hard as rocks and brittle as, um, pretezel sticks  :smile2:.

A fan blowing over your shrooms and not directly on them works just as good and doesn't blow them on the floor.  :wink:

only thing i dont like about damprid is the messy pile of pink shit in the bottom of the dessicant chamber...  fukin nasty...




Change it before it turns to soup.  Shit's cheap enough if you buy the big refill cartons.

I can use a handful for a few weeks. Just don't put real wet shrooms in there. Fan dry for at least a day.

Another thing that seems to increase lifespan is to pluck out the beads that begin to cluster together. You can tell they're getting wet by their shiny look.

look at the MMGG for a good drying chamber tupperware bowl (the big one called THE BOWL) works well. washcloth in bottom of bowl to catch water hardware cloth above that to hold the damprid and another screen above that to hold the fruit. I rarely fan dry just toss em in there and in 2-5 days they're cracker dry and ready for the freezer.

I dont fan dry, just directly into a damprid container. It works fine, just takes an extra 3 days.
