My buddy swim has always used damprid to dry his babies, he had a buddy bring him over a box on his way to his place but his buddy brought a new kind he has never seen. Damprid with fresh sent, made for inside closets or something, it has a sent to it. Does that mean its sketchy to use, will the scent transfer to the babies? Does anyone else have experience with this or could give swim any insight, thanks

love, peace, compassion and respect

Agreed.
You might be able to spread it on a cookie sheet and bake the scent out- but I doubt it.

Find some silica gel. It's sometimes sold at craft stores or Mall-Wart for drying flowers. It's rechargeable, so you only buy it once. Dry the freshies with a fan until they're all shriveled up (dehumidifier in the room sometimes helps), then crisp 'em up in a bin with a bowl of silica gel set in it (a trashbag under the lid makes it airtight if needed). Don't set the mushrooms directly on the silica gel, and don't breathe the dust, especially right after taking out of the oven from recharging.

i like using a bunch of the little silica gel packets that come in medicine / vitamin bottles - no contact issues there either

300 degrees F will dry it right up. Just 20-30 minutes.

i wouldnt bake the little packets, maybe if the gel was in loose form - the packets might ignite - i just replace them if they get hard but there might be a way to reuse them

I've baked those little packets dozens of times, until they fell apart. Then I just put the loose silica in a glass bowl that comes with a plastic lid. That way I could put the lid on when I wasn't using it and put the whole bowl in the oven to recharge it (no lid of course). Never having to pour it from from one container to another prevents a big cloud of silica dust from filling the air. I recharge the packets at around 250 degrees, since that degrades the packet more slowly than higher temps did.

Clouds of harmful dust? Seriously? Why not just use a fan and a strainer. Swim taped a tapered strainer onto a small fan, just set the mushies in there, turned it up, and had dry mush in a matter of hours. Why make it more complicated or hazardous than you need to? Is there some advantage I'm not seeing here?:eusa_wall:lol:

dehydrating them fast and completely with a dessicant means there's a proportionally lesser chance of anything harmful growing on moist areas, even if it's not perceptibly wet,, ps thx for tip on baking packets

I live in a place that gets too humid for fan drying to work well enough, among other things.
