desicant question
    #3014979 - 08/17/04 08:17 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Could I possibly use clean cat litter or floor dry as a desicant.

Does Wal-mart sell desicant?

Thanks

Cat Litter? Probably not...

What I do know is that wherever you buy it, look for a product called damp-rid (dessicant with a fancy name)

In fact, I bet it is at Walmart, because I bought mine at home depot and saw it a few days later at Brooks Pharmacy. So yeah I bet its at Walmart.

Yes silica gel cat litter works very sweet as a desiccant in part because it is one! :wink: Pet Gold

There are several types of sdessicant available, they do not all perform the same.

clay: found in "desi-paks" it doesn't pull moisture out of the air all that great, and needs recharging frequently. If saturated, it can add water to the air.

silica gel: OK but pricey. Don't get the indicating (color changing) type

Drierite: great but pricey

Calcium Chloride: my favorite by far. This is what is in Damp-Rid, and others. Has a very high affinity for moisture, will continue o pull water out of the air even after it has absorbed a good amount of water.
