    Cupboard Moisture Control Dessicant Stuff

    Ages ago someone had industrial quantities of dessicant available.

    Cant recall who , but am after a quantity for a specialist dry storage room of approx 3.00 x 3.00

    have a heater , no drain point for a dehumidifier, so dessicant in a tub is probably my best option I think. Just trying to overdo the humidity removal if possible.

    I will check out the M10 - Bunnings type products

    I don't like the idea of a container of liquid in the gun safe which is what the damp rid stuff becomes as it absorbers the moisture . Silica gel dry in oven , microwave or leave outside on a hot day then back in the safe.

    Thanks guys - Bunnings have a biggish moisture removal thingy that looks like it will do the job.

    dont expect much moisture as there is a permanent heater in the room , just wanting to remove any extra moisture when the room is closed for long periods. Every little bit helps.
