Barbara, I don’t have a specific situation to report, other than many of the institutions in our NC C2C community have problems with controlling RH levels, esp. in the summertime. At our workshop we pass out silica gel packets, discuss their use in creating a microclimate, and that’s how the question came up about DampRid. The participant has used it with success in her personal spaces but not in collections.
I really appreciate the wisdom you all have shared here (Dale’s points about dust and accelerated chemical reactions, in particular) and have passed it along to our workshop group. Thanks!
