Need Dessicant Help
    #621377 - 04/28/02 03:43 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

i Need Help in the Drying and Preserving of my Mushrooms.
i've read the MMGG, and it's become my bible.
i've checked in the paint departments of hardware stores, and have went into a paint devoted store (colour your world)

but when i ask them for a "carton of Damp-Rid or Damp-be-Gone (Anhydrous calcium chloride)" or something that would dryout a damp closet, no of them had any clue to what i was talking about.

i live in canada, so if anyone knows any stores, or ways of asking to get this product, i'd appreciate it a great deal

with Regards~~

Go to a craft shop. Buy some silica gel flower drying crystals. Be sure to fan dry first and don't let the shrooms touch whatever you use.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

what i meant is, in what instance, would a drying product be used, for it to be in a auto department.
for instance i went into the paint store and said i needed to dryout a damp closet before i was to paint it. if i went in to the auto department, what could i use as an excuse, so he'd know what i want. do i said i need something to take the moisture out of my engine, or what. i dont what to just say take the moisture out of the air, because thats getting vaige, and he may recommend something i dont want.

got suggestions?

I too was looking for dessicant and went to almost every department store looking.... could never find it...till one guy said that i was in the wrong department.... instead of looking in the painting department look in the cleaning department.... once i started looking there I found it. ask for it by name DampRid is what I use...

hope this helps

You can also use epsom salt to dry with. Bake it in the over to make sure there is no moisture in it. Then you can use it to dry with. And you can find it almost anywhere...
