Epsom salts is indeed hygroscopic and there is even a warning on most packages not to leave them open to the air.

This is my desication tek. And it's reusable forever too. Just bake them and they will dry out again and break them up with a hammer and reuse forever. Safe, cheap and environmentally friendly.

Edit: I posted about this in mushroom cultivation last year and I just bumped the thread for you. It has some details and will be a good reference. Here it is.
