I use silica gel. Just keep the mushies off of it with wire mesh or chicken wire. I've had smaller mushrooms fall and had to pick them out of the silica gel, but the silica gel doesn't stick to them or cause any harm.

The blue crystals contain heavy metals. If the shrooms dont touch there wont be a problem...if they do you may get sick but chaces are extreamly small if at all present due to the very small amount the shrooms would touch and they wouldnt absorb much, then you dont eat many mushrooms at a time when you do eat...

All in all, dont swet it but try not to let them touch the stuff.
