Using water softener as desiccant
    #4504924 - 08/06/05 10:42 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Ok I went out and bought some chemical grade water softener (99.95% pure salt)... will this work as a desiccant?  And do I still have to bake it to get moisture out?  I don't think there's any moisture in the pellets.

Thanks :smile:

salt will absorb water... there are better alternatives like silica gel

if you dry salt , in a overn for 200 deg for a hr , it will do the job better than you think ^
