Anhydrous calcium chloride aka Damp-rid (Home Depot/Paint Section). The mushrooms don't ever come in direct contact with this shit so it's cool. put the dessicant bowl in a bigger tupperware bowl (with a snap on lid) lay some mesh over the smaller bowl inside (i use a plastic mesh) put the mushrooms on the mesh and snap on the lid.

You could buy some silica gel from a craft store.

Hi:

FYI - Anhydrous Calcium Chloride is what Drierite is made of. It never melts and is non-toxic. Shrooms can be put directly in contact with it.

Calcium Chloride is what Damp-Rid is made of and it disolves into a liquid when it gets saturated. It is also non-toxic, but shrooms can't touch it because it will transfer moisture back to them.
