    #2886201 - 07/13/04 03:04 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

do grocery stores sell damprid or any other kind of dessicant? any other stores like hobbyshops sell it? no wallmart around so i'm looking for alternatives...i don't want to order dessicant from the net if i don't have to. if it is found in a grocery store what section? thanks...if this doesn't work i'll go w/ baking some epsom salt.

damprid can be recharged in the oven, but it does form one big clump that needs to be broken up, it isnt the funnest stuff to handle....

Call a hobby shop/craft supply store and ask them for "the stuff that you dry flowers with." They should know what you mean.

Go to Walmart, in the craft section you will find silica gel. It has indicating crystals to tell you when to recharge them in the oven. Works great.

There's no specified amount to use. If you have more, then the more the better. But buying one of those containers at Walmart is more than sufficient. Just spread the silica beeds out onto as much surface area as you can.
