Desiccant in the U.K.
    #963127 - 10/15/02 03:28 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

I'm new to this but can't find the answer to this question.

Do any of you 'researchers' know where I can find desiccant in the U.K. and in what form do I need it?

I now have all the kit ready to go. Still waiting for the spore syringes to be delivered though. Do they always take as long as 3 weeks to deliver?

You can usualy find "epson salts" at any druggest or grocery store. It works fine as a dessicant. Bake it. It will solidify. Bust it up & it's good to go :laugh:.

Delivery time often depends on who you order from & the distance involved. If you oreded from a US vendor. 3 weeks is not unreasonable. I would give them an EM, just to verify the date it was sent.

6T  :tongue:

Cheers for your quick response. I think I should be able to find some Epsom Salts no problem. How long do I need to bake them for and at what temp. or does it not matter? Once done do I just use it as ordinary desiccant as in the teks?

I think I'll stop worrying about the syringes and give it a little more time I'm just looking forward to getting started.

go to homebase or b&q and they have those small dehumidifiers for ?3. open it up and it has some dessicant which you can use to dry.

Bake for as long as you please. The object is to remove any moisture -- in it. 30 minutes @ 400 F - would be fine. Then, use as you would any dessicant. It works well in a one gallon type jar w/lid. A kilo is only about $2.50 (usd). You just rebake & reuse as needed. 6T :tongue:
