    I think drywall gypsum works too, dry it out in the oven first.... Google it.

    You can get a package of cat litter made of silicon desiccant beads. I don't have the bag anymore, otherwise I could tell you the brand name.

    I got some at Bi-Mart. I think it was just called World's Best Kitty Litter or something like that. It's pure silica beads. Just don't get the scented kind. I bought some and a pair of Leggs stockings. Just cut them to the size I wanted, filled them up with kitty litter and tied them off. It's a poor man's safe dehumidifier.

    I work at a pharmacy and could save you the dessicant packs that come in the med bottles, if you wanted to come pick them up (gresham area).
