More dessicant Q's.
    #3177530 - 09/25/04 01:57 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

    So for some fucking reason epsom salts are just not doing their job.  So, I got some ice salt (Calcium chloride and, hrmm, I think sodium chloride??).  Anyway, does this stuff need to be baked like Epsom salts do?  I'm staring at a bunch of little pearly beads here.  Are they saturated now or vat?  Shanks!!  :grin: :thumbup:

Are you fan drying first? I myself only use silica gel (cat litter) without a problem. I've seen that shit (salts) liquify/clump far too much :frown: GL

  Yes!  I promise you, hyphae, 4-ever!  I fan dry!  I just don't know what's up with the salts.  Just need to know if I ought to dry out these ice salts 'fore I stick 'em in a dessicant chamber?  :grin:

I'm about ready to try out the Epsoms but I dehydrate them before going into the Epsoms chamber fully. I've just been noticed they're sucking moisture back up after a week even when stored in an "airtight" container and wrapped up in trashbags..hopefully spreading some of this at the bottom will do me ok..

Good luck with your new salts though.

Baking em to start off would be a good idea, it will give you a bit more drying duty before yuou have to start messing with clumps. Dont let the salts get overly wet and clupmy, try to catch it just as its starting to clump and bake it then.

Scatmanrav, mabey use a few quart jars or a large pretzel tub and keep your dryed salts in that between spaced out harvets.
