How DampRid works

When DampRid’s all-natural, calcium chloride 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 and friendly to the environment. When using or storing DampRid, keep it out of the reach of children and pets. While many of our products are refillable for extended use, simply discard your DampRid product when you are done.

DampRid Moisture Absorbers work in three phases:


As excess moisture from the air is absorbed into the DampRid crystals, they begin to harden and form a solid mass. Then they begin to dissolve and liquid may begin to drip into the bottom chamber.


Accumulated moisture will drip into the bottom chamber, and about half to three-quarters of the crystals will dissolve.


All of the DampRid crystals will dissolve and the bottom chamber will be full of liquid. In scented/fragranced DampRid Moisture Absorbers, a small line of freshener beads will remain in the top chamber.


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.
