When to recharge Epsom salts/dessicant?
    #3028548 - 08/20/04 02:54 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

    So, a thought experiment: 
      Say you've baked about 2 pounds (2/3 of one of those milk containers of Epsom Salts) of Epsom salts and broken it up and put it in a large rubbermaid container (say one that'll hold  a few dozen cookies).  You've dried out some fruits from your pitiable casings (dry weight ~ 10g ).  You're wondering when the Epsom salts need to be recharged. 
      What should one look for to know when you need to bake the salts again?  Discoloration?  Smell?  Clumping?  Many thanks, all.  :grin:

if epsom salts are in play then i would say that they are fine to reuse (certainly 2lbs of it is still useable after drying 10 grams). when you put new fruits into the dessicant chamber and you wait a few hours and check it again you'll be able to tell if they aren't drying. if they aren't drying then recharge the epsom salt.
