has damp rid ruined them?
    #4665910 - 09/15/05 05:43 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

So let's say you put some damp-rid in a container, put a paper towel over it and lay some shrooms on top. They end up drying out, but the paper towel gets wet, and the shrooms end up smelling like the desiccant. Are they ruined? Is there any way to salvage them? Help would seriously be appreciated....

IT READS A WAYS DOWN REFERING TO DAMP-RID "Also, it is highly soluble in water so that even if you place your mushrooms on paper covering it, it will still find a way to get in your mushrooms. On the other hand, it is not toxic like the silica gel indicator crystals. Still, if you have the unfortunate experience of eating some Damp-Rid, it tastes like shit and will make you as thirsty as hell (will set the stage for a really bad trip)."
ITS UP TO YOU... I DID THE SAME, BUT I PUT MY SHROOMS IN THE PILL FORM.

I LIKE IT THAT WAY MUCH MORE...I JUST DO! YOU ALSO WOULDN'T TASTE THE DAMP-RID.
THE LINK I USED TO MAKE MY DAMP-RID CONTAINER IS NO LONGER THERE OR I JUST CANT FIND
IT  :foreheadslap:

IT CONSIST OF AN AIR TIGHT CONTAINER WITH MESH ABOUT 2 INCHES FROM THE BOTTOM, THEN A SCREEN OVER THE MESH (TO HOLD THE DAMP-RID) WITH DAMP-RID OVER THE TOP....THEN ANOTHER MESH ABOUT 2 INCHES ABOVE THE DAMP-RID (THATS WHERE I PLACE THE MUSHIES) CLOSE THE LID AND IN ABOUT 3 DAYS THEY ARE CRISP ENOUGH FOR MY PILL MAKING.

IT'S UP TO YOU IF YOU EAT THEM. PERSONALLY I'VE NEVER BEEN BOTHERED!

HOPE I WAS TO ANY HELP! :cool:

Yea, I wouldn't eat em. You need to suspend the shrooms above the damprid on a screen or something that wont absorb moisture.

thats why you want to fan dry for about 24 hours before putting the mushies in the desiccant. that way there won't be so much liquid to be sucked out that will end up on the napkin.
i had some aborts that did the same thing in a real small drying chamber, and i was ok when i ate em.

we'll they're cracker dry now, and most of the damp-rid smell has left them.

There are "safe" to eat right? I did look at that faq after the fact, which seems to warn more against side effects than physical harm. I couldn't die from eating them could I? Does the dyhydration come from digestion, or simply having them in your mouth?
