Epsom salts as desiccant.
    #510787 - 01/05/02 06:27 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

HI,

I have heard people using Epsom salts as a desiccant with good results. Do the salts need to be baked in an oven to dehydrate them before use. I have done this but not tested them yet. They turn from a see-through crystal to a white powder/crystal when baked.

Help appreciated,

Alkaloid.

They work well. Before use dry them at 400F for 60 minutes. They will form a big lump which you will need to crush before use. Or even better.. go to a craft shop. Purchase silica gel flower drying crystals. They are reusable and seem to work faster than epsom salts.
