How DampRid Works

DampRid lowers relative humidity to 50%, a level that mold and mildew cant grow, once it gets to 50% it will slow down to maintain that level and restart when necessary. When the white pellets are exposed to the air, they absorb excess moisture and dissolve into a brine (salt solution). They won't dry the air to a level that damages plants, animals or clothing. This formula is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and septic safe. The DampRid moisture absorber works in three phases:

  • DampRid Phase 1Phase 1: Excess moisture is absorbed into the white calcium chloride crystals. The white crystals begin to harden and form a solid mass, they have not yet dissolved, you may see liquid dripping into the bottom chamber of the product at this stage.

  • DampRid Phase 2Phase 2: At this point, excess moisture will most likely be dripping into the bottom of the product. Approximately 1/2 to 3/4's of the white crystals have dissolved.

  • DampRid Phase 3Phase 3: In phase 3 all of the white crystals will have dissolved and the bottom of the product will be full of moisture. You will still see a small line of yellow freshener beads in the top chamber of the Hanging Moisture Absorber.
When finished with the DampRid product, discard it and replace with a new one. For refillable products, empty the collected liquid into the sink (with running water) or toilet and refill.
