like the tile says, can you dry out and re use dessicant? I have a dehumidifyer in my basment so i was thinking of hanging the bags in front of it and hopefully unhydrating them.

Some of them you could recharge by microwaving. Check the packaging if you still have it. It should say.

silica gel can be recharged... put it in the oven at 250 for at least 5 hours... if its the indicating kind, bake till all the colored crystals are blue, if not, bake for like 9 hours to be sure...

dri rite isn't silica gel, i don't know hot to recharge that...

drierrite can be recharged as per their website. You bake it in the oven or microwave it. www.drierite.com I think is the website. Supposely some of the best dessicant to use.

Damp rid, the closet crap claims to go to mush and says nothing about reuse.. but that could be a marketing gimmick.

i don't know the brand names in the USA but i use Calcium chloride, which turns to a liuid when full - pop it in a disposable tray and stick it in the oven on the hottest for a couple of hours, works very well. but becomes a hard brick which need breaking up which can be a pain.
