Can you go into detail of how to use epsom salts as a drying agent? Do i make a box with a screen top, and put a pile of epsom salt underneath the screen, then lay the mushrooms on top? Thanks for the info  :thumbup:

What I do is....place some in a sealable bowl(tupperware).....then lay a paper towl over the salt( a few layers thick).......then you can lay the shromies on the towl.....seal the bowl...wait a few days....checker out!!

Replace salt as needed!!

You should be able to get a dessicant from your local supermarket. I assume you have one somewhere...

Just get stuff that's called DampRid or something similar. Small containers that you put in a cupboard or bathroom that soak up humidity. A tray on top holds the dessicant, and there's a reservoir underneath to hold the water it draws in.

I used epsom salt and it seemed to work pretty good. But on pay day I'm gonna buy some drierite. As far as the epsom, I put a few table spoons in the oven at 400 deg. for 1 1/2 hours to get the moisture out of it.

You might need more depending on how much shrooms your drying
