easily reusable calcium chloride drying chamber

i put 1kg of calcium chloride in a large pyrex dish (chicken roaster) i then put a wire mesh cut to size on top of the calcium so it is about 30mm above it resting on the curved sides of the pyrex. to make it all airtight i put silicon grease (the stuff that doesnt go hard) around the lip of the lid where the other lid goes on (vaseline would probably work too). when the calcium starts to show signs of being wet just take the grill and lid off and pop it in the microwave for 40mins on full power. it turns to a slush but eventually dries out completely.

Calcium Chloride is a great drying agent even better than dessicant says here. Other alternatives can be found here and is a great example of other stuff to use to dry product. http://orgchem.colorado.edu/hndbksupport/drying/drying.html

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.
