Pet store :wink: in the cat litter section (the silica gel spaceage cat litter). Works great and it's cheap!

Wow shoulda had those little cans of it at the hardware store, like near the sump pumps and other keep-the-basement-dry products, since that's where they get used alot.

You can use epsom salt from general stores and supermarkets, just bake it at 400* F for 4 hours in a tray. Or you can buy damp rid online.

yes but i doubt the 10% silica in the kitty litter absorbs as much as straight salts.

Pet Gold has a 100% silica gel cat litter GrOwer and I have used it exclusively and is one of the best I've used and will vouch for it! Pet Golds CRYSTALS Premium cat litter Trust me bro it's just another common source FYI and is a good thing to know :wink:

this is silly... kat litter? epsom salt??

its this simple go to home depot go into the paint section, find paint thinners, youll see a prodect called Damp-Rid, Damp-be-Gone, and Dri-Z-Air to name a few... They are easy to find and are small crystal dessicants that can be used in an air tight chamber to dry the water out of your precious mushrooms. FUCK kitty liter do it da right way!

They weren't talking about just plain kitty litter, but some special crap which is 100% silica gel (not clay or anything lame like that).

But also I agree it should not be hard to find the damp-rid, etc.
