How DampRid works

When DampRid’s all-natural 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.

DampRid Moisture Absorbers work in three phases:


Crystals harden as they collect moisture

DampRid crystals work immediately to absorb excess moisture from the air. The crystals harden and form a solid mass. Then they begin to dissolve and liquid will begin to drip into the bottom chamber.  It may take a few days before liquid begins to drip.


Liquid drips into tub

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


Replace when crystals dissolved

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, discard in trash.  Empty liquid into toilet and refill basket with crystals.


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.
