yeah, it should work dunno why noone uses it now. maybe you need too much, which makes it to expensive.

Explanation: Usage of salt in earlier days

Get an American Harvest Snack Master dehydrator, if you have any volume to dry. Set it & forget it. They are only about $40 new at most big Mart stores.

A product called DampRid works pretty well. Do a search for it on the internet so you know what it looks like or search the boards here at the shroomery. In my area I believe Lowes was one of the few stores that carried that product. Also I hear cat litter works pretty well if it is high in silica. Tidy Cats brand has something called dehydrated crystals in it, that would probably work well.

Just put your fanned shrooms on a layer of dry rice. Cracker dry in a day.

Right now i've got what i'm estimating was around 80g wet shrooms fan-dried for 2 days + placed in a glass jar with 10g of anhydrous Magnesium Sulphate popped in there.. the nice thing about MgSO4 is that it's 51% water when it's crystallised, so all you need to do is give it a heating to dry the water out, it'll turn to greyish dust, then you sprinkle it in your jar and it'll suck all the water out of those shrooms extremely effectively. better than any commercial dehydrator. you can buy it in 500g loads at the chemist's..

most you can pop in the oven on a baking sheet and dry it out, it's usualy reusable until it's become nothing if it's bakable

In the humid environment I live in a fan works to get them close to dry but it takes desiccant to get them cracker dry. Maybe in drier climates a fan will do the whole job... :cheers:

true, when rh is high they dont get crackerdry. But as spacevox said, rice is a very good alternative for that.
