For anyone looking for silica gel/desiccant, there are some inexpensive, readily available sources.

1. most people know of this: damp-rid, or damp-off

2. the little packets found in shoe boxes. just go to a retailer that sells shoes, and collect the little packets, cuz they just throw them away..

3. And finally, there are two kinds of cat litter, the regular "traditional" kind, and theres this new kind where is crystals. Tidy cats makes it and it runs about 8-12 bucks a container. Anyways, the crystals are made of silica gel, so its a perfect source for drying, if you can't find desiccant anywhere.

hope this helps

i haven't tried it yet, but it is made of silica gel, so i'm assuming it would work the same as the others.. if anyone wants to try it, let us know how it works out for ya.

peace

If you use silica gel, is it supposed to touch the mushrooms?

I've used silica gel cat litter for almost 2yrs. now and it works great it has the colored indicators that tell you it's time for recharging, it doesn't clump and is reusable. It's always a good idea to keep the shrooms off the silica if at all possible and it is :wink: when using finer silica gels some can be entraped in the gills/whatever now this isn't going to harm you it can certainly give you an extreme case of cottonmouth and resulting thirst will make your journey a less enjoyable one. BTW this spaceage cat litter also works great for carbon scrubbers for those of you who know what those are :wink: GL guys
