DampRid is a disposable, non-electric dehumidifier; it works by absorbing excess moisture from the air. DampRid contains a desiccant, a substance that sustains a dry environment by absorbing moisture. Unlike other dehumidifiers, a desiccant dehumidifier removes moisture without the need for electricity or batteries. DampRid is a convenient way to eliminate stale, musty odors while preventing damage to valuables. DampRid’s crystals absorb excess moisture in the air to create and maintain the optimal humidity level in your home, storage area, cabin, or boat wherever moisture is a problem.
How a Disposable Dehumidifier Works
When DampRid’s crystals are exposed to air, they absorb excess moisture and gradually dissolve into a liquid brine (a saltwater solution). DampRid never dries the air to a level that damages plants, animals or clothing. Our proprietary formula is septic-safe.
What is a Desiccant?
A desiccant is a hygroscopic chemical that sustains a dry environment by absorbing moisture. A hygroscopic chemical is one that attracts and holds water molecules from the environment.
Why use DampRid?
DampRid products have been removing moisture from the air in homes throughout the country for more than 70 years. It’s cost-effective and simple to use. And unlike sprays, candles and air fresheners, DampRid attracts and traps excess moisture to eliminate musty odors. It only takes a few moments to put any DampRid product to work, and many of our products are refillable for extended use. When the crystals in your DampRid product have fully dissolved, you simply empty the brine in the toilet and refill your container (for refillable products).
Eliminating moisture means fresher, cleaner air and no musty odors. Learn more about the importance of moisture removal for fresh indoor air.
DampRid can be used in a variety of places, including:
- around the home
- in basements
- in closets
- in vacation homes
- on stored boats or RVs
Disposing of a Desiccant Dehumidifier
DampRid may last up to several months, depending on the conditions: temperature, humidity, placement, room size, etc. For refillable DampRid products, empty the liquid into the toilet and refill with new DampRid crystals. For disposable DampRid products, simply discard them when the crystals are gone, and pick up new products at a store near you. When using or storing DampRid, keep it out of the reach of children and pets.
