I'm also in a hatchback and love it.

Just off the top of my head, here is what I would do first.

  1. Cover back and side windows, cut out Reflectix and with spray glue adhere black cloth on the outside. They should just compression fit in the window. All the better if you have tinted windows. I had my car tinted for this purpose. Tinted windows with black on the inside just look like SUPER dark windows. Keeps the light and eyeballs out, makes it looks like, "Just another car here, move along"
  2. Get a front windshield cover. My favorite so far is the Covercraft, something like this.
  3. I'm not sure your cargo area situation, but I sleep on an REI self-inflating sleeping pad, with a 1.5" mattress topper folded in half, on top of the pad. Sheets, and a sleeping bag. (although I recently upgraded to a sleeping quilt by enlightenedequipment.com and it is amazing)
    1. If you are in a warm area, get a fan. Best I've found so far that works is a stroller fan. Pretty compact and has a clip to hang it.
  4. I keep two or three DampRid going to absorb moisture and any smells. Others here disagree on the efficacy of DampRid. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ This is the one I use.
  5. Gym membership to shower and work out. (I have a large microfiber towel. It's small, dries quickly, doesn't smell and I hardly ever have to wash it)
  6. Place(s) to park at night. LOTS of information on here about that. But you figure out pretty quick how find and judge places to park.
  7. You don't need a cooler. I don't keep food in the car, I eat at the grocery store salad bar.
  8. You don't need very many clothes.
  9. You don't need much of anything. :)

    I think that covers it. If you have any questions just ask! Best of luck!!

    EDIT: clarified the statement on damprid
u/mastrkief · 1 pointr/EtherMining

So do you not have any intake fans at all? I was looking for a fan strip across your rig like what the Vedha Case has but I don't see any.

Also, it looks like you're powering your risers with the sata adapters that come with the risers. I really recommend changing over to using 4-pin molex or 6-pin PCIe directly from your psu. Those adapters are really cheaply made and they add another point of failure. Additionally, they're always molded connectors which are notorious melting because the plastic is injected around the cables which end up getting too close and then you can electrical arcs across two wires which causes the plastic to melt and the wires eventually fuse together and you get a fire. PCIe risers CAN pull up to 75 watts, but very rarely do they use that much, and SATA connectors are only rated for 54 watts so it's just not a good idea when it's not that much more work to power them directly from 6-pin PCIe or 4-pin molex. You may be fine for weeks or months and then one day you may not be. Also because of the arcing issue I mentioned above, I don't think its even that they run too hot, just that the wires get too close together which causes the arc and the eventual melting of the plastic.

So yeah, I wouldn't use SATA but if you're gonna use it I highly recommend either getting some adapters with crimped connectors like these or just doing SATA directly from your PSU with crimped connectors.

I live in Georgia and so I'm going to be looking at implementing either something like this or probably a grow tent in one of the rooms of my house that rarely gets used. If I had a covered porch I think I'd definitely use this method. Did you run the power lines yourself? How much work was that? 30amp 240v sounds so amazing when I'm dealing with 20 amp 120v right now. Not much room for growth right now.

Either way, great video and really cool for you to give credit to the person who inspired you. I saw you mention that you don't think humidity will be an issue but have you considered getting something like this as a just in case? Seems like a small investment to just hedge against any possible problems.

u/Dat_Mustache · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

Alright. I used to work for a company that made Power inverters, solar panels and batteries for RV's, backup systems for homes and businesses.

I've had this discussion tons of times with hundreds of customers.

  1. AC units are incredibly huge power drains. They are almost always not feasible to be run off of small vehicular systems or directly off of batteries.

  2. If you're on the West Coast or in LOW HUMIDITY ENVIRONMENTS --- Invest in a swamp cooler/Evaporative Air Conditioner. They are MUCH more efficient. Probably a great example for small spaces like vans: http://amzn.to/1RTUar9

  3. If you need an AC unit in more humid environments, try a dehumidifier ( http://amzn.to/1RTTySh ) ---- That'll improve interior comfort quite a bit. However, a rooftop engine-powered AC unit with a couple 200Ah AGM Batteries would be more ideal: http://amzn.to/1UBH0n6

  4. Another thing to consider with AC Units. They aren't going to run for 8-10 hours while you're sleeping. At least, not straight through. They'll turn on for 10-20 minutes, then turn off again once the temperature reaches a nominal setting. Once it gets too warm, the AC will turn back on again. So you're looking at maybe 3 hours of runtime if it's not sweltering.

    Fortunate for desert climates, the temperature drops 30-60 degrees at night. Not so much for sub-tropical and more humid climates. So a simple fan or again, a swamp cooler will do.

    Lastly; I'll second what everyone else says. Rooftop AC unit+Genset+Batteries is ideal. Having an Inverter/Charger that prioritizes batteries over the alternate source of electric (Genset) is going to be probably the absolute best setup and what I recommend.

    Something like this: http://amzn.to/22Fud6y which has a battery priority mode and auto-generator iginition when it senses the batteries reach a certain level. It will then utilize the genset to charge the batteries and pass-through the power to run the AC if it also kicks on until the batteries reach your preset level of charge.
u/paperclipgrove · 5 pointsr/MPSelectMiniOwners

There are lots of options, but for just getting started I suggest:

Hatchbox PLA 3D 1.75 mm. This particular one is black, but get the color(s) that suit your fancy!

I suggest this one because:

  • PLA is easy and forgiving to print with and doesn't cause crazy fumes. (Still print in ventelated area though). If this is your first experience with 3D printing - stick with PLA for at least a spool or two!
  • Hatchback hasn't given me issues yet. Good quality.
  • Price is Right
  • 1.75mm fits the standard nozzle the printer comes with.
  • Hatchback was my first - so I'm irrationally attached to them

    There are dozens of brands of PLA and most of them will work just fine. Feel free to experiment. I use $20/kg as my standard "this is an OK price" limit for standard PLA

    Be more mindful when switching material types. PLA is forgiving, but hates heat/sun. Its also not overly strong. ABS is apparently strong, but a pain to print on these monoprice printers (requires high temps) and the fumes are toxic. Wood was fun - until it clogged my nozzle. Apparently you need a larger nozzle to print wood without clogging frequently. Whoops!

    Anyways, when getting new filament:

  • Get a different color/brand because it's fun or it fits your needs. Variety is the spice of printing!
  • Get a different material type (PLA/ABS/Nylon/etc) when your print requires a different type of material. Research the material requirements first to make sure your printer and setup can handle it (heat/ventilation requirements).

    Side note: store your filament is a dry place. 3D material tends to absorb water from overly humid air. When the filament does this, it doesn't print as well. I keep mine in air tight storage containers with one of these Renewable Dehumidifiers
u/TherionSaysWhat · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Welcome to the wonderful world of kegging! Enjoy 30 min packaging days, fewer trips to the recycle, and never having to soak another bottle ever.

Friendly suggestion: Buy humidity reducing devices like the Eva-Dry 333. Especially when it's humid out, at ale serving temperatures you will likely get plenty of condensation in there. I had about a small pond in there when I got back from a longish vacation after forgetting to reset the dehumidifier. Okay, hyperbole, more like a puddle but you get the point. Those Eva-Dry things are rad.

Also carefully consider the length of your lines. BeerSmith has a good article to start with. It's shocking just how much this affects the pour from your faucets.

Finally, sit back and enjoy. Personally I still bottle a couple of batches per year for special brews but my keezer has been a huge upgrade in enjoyment and time savings. Cheers!

here are tips i can add to the pile; get an accurate remote thermostat or humidistat for your window A/C units.


thermostats built into most A/C units are cheap, inaccurate and cycle your unit on/off unnecessarily.

what i do is plug an A/C rated appliance extension cord into this thermostat, then my A/C into the extension cord so the distance between the A/C and the thermostat is now across the room. this separate thermostat helps keep your A/C unit from cycling too much by moderating the temperature where you actually are in the room.

when you plug your A/C into this thermostate, set the A/C thermostate on lowest and fan on always. that way when the remote thermostate goes on the A/C will always be on Cool+Fan no matter what the temperature is.

some new A/C units have temperature sensing thermostat built into the remote control that you keep accross the room from the A/C unit window, so look for this feature when you are buying a new window unit as it should help you be more comfortable at higher ambient temperatures without your A/C cycling too much;

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0036WTWCQ (i do not own this A/C, i just link it as an example)


if you really want to save money on A/C, you could set your unit to go on/off based on HUMIDITY, not temperature. to do that you will need to buy (and apply the same way as the above a remote thermostat);


so when the room Humidity gets uncomfortably above 50%, only then will you let the A/C kick on more for it's dehumidification ability, then it's cooling power. once the air is lower in humidity you should be fine with nothing more than a box fan to circulate air against your skin for cooling.


if you live in a dry heat zone, combine a fan with a evaporative wick humidifier. as the water evaporates it takes heat energy out of the fan blown air and moderately cools the room. the added humidity will also make you feel more comfortable in the dry air. this approach is commonly known as a desert cooler. evaporative wicks can last all season if you use a capful of bacteriostatic solution in the water. to clean a wick, simply allow it to run dry for a few hours.


u/Backonredditforreal · 6 pointsr/gundeals

I should’ve clarified and said “for now” regarding the size haha. Tactical guns are hard to fit but otherwise I have 8 guns on one side and 4 on the other but those are all tactical guns so they take up twice as much space.

If you need help with moisture, I use these in my safes for ammo and guns.

Since I’ve been buying them, this looks like the third gen.

I also use pistol hangers which help immensely. The ones I got were $7 for 4 at the time but are more now. They’re a great cheap way to help with organization.

u/aelric22 · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

Definitely buy plastic in bulk if you're planning on using that to save money and profit long term. If you have one near you, Microcenter has PLA, PETG, ABS, and many other assorted filaments in many different colors for sale starting at $14 per (2kg spools I think, been a long time since I've checked the mass amount on my spools period). Some people have had issues with the Inland filament, but I've never had a single issue. My favorite is their off color "cream" white PLA. These are usually distinguishable by a Green dot sticker on the box. Produces a really nice surface finish, and even better after sanding.

However, I also suggest you invest in a storage solution. What I've gone with:

- For storage if you have a Container Store near you (or just get something similar): https://www.containerstore.com/s/clear-weathertight-trunk/d?q=weather%20tight&productId=10024301

- For filament dehumidifying: https://www.amazon.com/Improved-Eva-dry-333-Renewable-Dehumidifier/dp/B000H0XFCS/ref=sr_1_41?keywords=rechargeable+silica&qid=1570113444&s=gateway&sr=8-41

I have filament from when I first purchased my 3D printer in 2016, and after continuously storing it in this solution since, it still prints effectively and cleanly with minimal to zero water vapor related issues.

u/OsbertParsely · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Same problem. Looks like the previous homeowner renovated and took out the fans at some point - oddly enough we still have the exhaust pipes leading to the roof. Didn’t realize this when we bought the house; we had the beginnings of mold/mildew problems after the first month.

Get on amazon and get you a countertop dehumidifier and always shut the door to your bathroom when you aren’t using it. They are about $50 bucks apiece. We got one similar to this one but not the same model. It should have at a minimum an auto-cutoff switch for when it’s full. Some of the fancier ones have humidity sensors and can be programmed to shut off when the ambient air reaches a certain level of humidity (e.g, 35%). This can save you on electric in the long run.

But honestly we just keep the doors to our bathrooms shut all the time - we have dogs that absolutely love the filthy bathroom trash so we’d be doing that anyway - and we keep our little humidifiers running 24/7. We have to empty them about twice a week but as they sit on the counter it’s not a big deal. Extra electric cost is worth it because the extra dry air in the bathrooms means we have pretty much zero mold or mildew so the bathrooms stay cleaner for longer.

u/camham61 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

You can look at my recent post to see how mine is coming. I am doing it with a new 7.1 igloo that I got from best buy for about $200 tax included. I bought a 3 tap system from kegconnection with a dual regulator and all stainless hardware and perlicks. That came to about $370, which is a lot BUT everyone recommends it, and if you're going to fucking do it, you might as well fucking do it right.

I probably spent close to $100 on materials for the collar, BUT this is my first real project and I didnt have a lot of tools/screws/misc stuff around to put that together so about $30 of that would go there.

I got a temp controller on amazon for $16 and an extention cord at home depot for ~$10, and have some leftover electrical accessories from my previous TC build so YMMV there.

I bought these dehumidifiers on amazon for $32

I bought two converted ball lock kegs from cornykeg.com for $100 with shipping and it was a breeze to clean them even thought they said they would be cleaned already.

I then got a 10lb steel air tank from adventures in homebrewing for $60 which I thought was a steal (steel hehe).

So this puts me close to $900. Which is $300 less than a very DIY-spirited blog post like this says it will cost. Sure I havent bought the last two kegs, but I then would still be $200 short of it.

There are some suggestions by the other guys in here that will save you money, and I'd say that my attempt is a little bit of combining both.

Hope I was some help!

u/Cemeterystoneman · 3 pointsr/Firearms

>WWII era rifle with a wood stock

Really any wooden stock/wood should be kept inside/temperature controlled. If you are unable to secure wooden/more sensitive firearms indoors (you totally can, even if its disassembling them but I get personal preference) you would do better to disassemble the firearm keeping the wood indoors and the receiver/action (metal) would be fine in the safe

As the other user mentions, humidity/moisture will be the issue. This isn't inherently produced in the cold so thats not the problem, what can become a problem is temperature fluctuations can create humidity/moisture build up resulting in moisture on the firearms - it sounds like you're going to be storing these unused for some time so that is something to consider, you can purchase a rechargeable dehumidifier like one of these to throw into the safe and recharge every month or so to prevent this from happening.

If you plan on not using certain or all of the guns for a long time you might also want to consider rubbing them down with a silicone cloth(this can be used on any part of the gun even stocks/wood) which will prevent moisture from attacking the metal/absorbing into the wood.

Depending on what kind of plastic/synthetic stocks extreme cold could weaken them over time but I don't believe it will be a major factor. Electronics (sights, lasers etc.) don't typically hold up to extended cold but if there ok-good quality you should be fine.

Personally my vote would be to get a safe in a more temperature controlled location sometime in the future but I also have a lot of firearms I wouldn't want to keep exposed like that, for the short term (one winter) you should be fine.


u/AlexandriteRae · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

Is the flooring already secured onto the metal? You reeeaaaallllyyyy need to put down a moisture barrier. Rust and mold are the van killers, and it’s way too easy for moisture to get trapped behind the paneling. Either way definitely get a dehumidifier. At the very minimum, one under the sink next to your water tanks and one by the bed area. These Are awesome, reuseable (for like. 10 years.) and good for small spaces.
Best of luck to you, safe travels!

u/-sub · 2 pointsr/shrooms

Don't take the lid off. Can you put a fan inside the closet on the floor facing away from the sfgc on the lowest setting?

Evaporation triggers the growth of pins and a good indicator that you're lacking FAE is "fuzzy feet" (it looks like fluffy growth on the base of the stipe growing upwards) -- if you have more than a half inch of fuzzy feet, u need more FAE.

rice is a bad idea. it doesn't work for phones and it's an urban myth. don't do that either. your best and most inexpensive bet is to construct a desiccant chamber and couple that with a fan if possible.

here's a desiccant product u can get online or at lowes/home depot/walmart and some more information about using dessicants for drying

good luck.

u/deadaluspark · 16 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I have one thats rated for down to 41 degrees. I had to use it extensively on the place I just moved into. It had leaks all over that I had to fix up to bring down the humidity (I live in a very rainy city, and when I moved in, it was at 75% humidity inside with the temp at 50 degrees. Not good.) I had it running, with no heat on in the house, constantly, for the first month. During the night it was dropping to about 48-50 degrees in the house and I had zero problems. I've gotten it down to 35% humidity in here and have been able to completely manage the mold problems that were beginning to form in the house.

Now, all that being said, I can't recommend it as BIFL simply because, well, I've only had it a few months. The other problem is, this is technically an older model, and the newer model from the same company is not rated for down to 41 degrees, which is why I purchased the older model to begin with.

Here is the Amazon link to the dehumidifier in question:


There's definitely negative reviews in there. The two main things to remember with this model is that it has an internal filter with an oil with a very low viscosity in it, meaning if it has been on its side, or turned over, or anything, you need to stand it up right for like a week before to start it up, to ensure that the oil is in the proper place and doesn't end up killing the unit (the result of many bad reviews.). The other is people complaining that it drips all over their floor. In my experience, if you mis-install the bucket, you can get a leak, and when you remove the bucket, if there is still water draining, it WILL drip, drip, drip into a little reservoir, but that fills up fast, and then will drip onto the floor. Basically, you just have to take your time with this thing and not expect to set it up in five minutes after getting it in the mail and expecting it to be perfect without ever looking at it again.

It's really a great dehumidifier if you pay attention to it and are patient with it. Once again, the main reason I am suggesting it is because of my success at running it at low temperatures. I am not suggesting that this model is BIFL considering I have not owned it long enough to call it that.

Good luck!

Applying sprays/traps as people mentioned will help lower the numbers, but it doesn't remove the conditions that attract silverfish/bugs in general the first place. If you don't get rid of silverfish you might end up attracting house centipedes (ive heard) and i'd rather gtfo than deal with that lol. This is what I did to keep them out of my dorm:

- Number one thing is to keep your suite clean, especially for people renting in older homes off campus. Silverfish eat starchy carbs. Declutter your space: no piles of paper, cardboard, nor clothes, nor food crumbs on the ground. place things in plastic tubs and food in tight sealed containers if you have to. Vacuum biweekly, do laundry often (and this includes your bedsheets)

- Additionally silverfish love humid environments. And its gonna be humid a long time cuz of the rain october - april. I bought this dehumidifier from amazon a while back. A lot of bugs also dislike the smell of spices. I purchased cinnamon essential oil from amazon and just placed a tiny bit in vials around the room. With the combination of those two, I stopped seeing them completely within a couple days.

I do videos for on my Hobie 16 when I'm at regattas and for fun. I'm usually camping so at night I have my GoPros charging in my tent. Even with using the anti fog tabs my videos always fogged up. The can look completely dry, but when the electronics of the GoPro warm up any bit of humidity goes right to the lense. The trick I learned is to always store my gear in a dry box with a mini dehumidifier. This was a complete game changer and I intend to modify my dry box so I can pass power into it for charging while all components that are used on the water are kept as dry as possible. The only place I store my GoPro gear is in my dry box now.

The dehumidifier I use:

The dry box I use (thinking about getting a bigger one though):

Video from July before I used the dry box and dehumidifier (you can see fog rings at various times):

Video from November after leaving my equipment in the dry box for a few week (zero fogging even with 55 degree air temps):

Laptop to free up space on the SD cards is a great call, but I would recommend having additional SD cards so you don't have to wait 20 to 30 minutes for a full SD card to download to your laptop if you want to make a quick swap.

For being out on the water I would never trust the jaws or suction cup. For doing video on big boats I use this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0062U2M4E/ with some adapters to get it to GoPro mounting system. There are also GoPro handel bar mounts that I would put around various poles on the boat.

For on my H16 I use these adapters that I have permanently riveted to a couple places on my boat. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005YVTK42/

No matter what kind of attachment I use I also do a safety line with some high strength kite string.

Oh, and the expanded batter packs are a must. They can fill up most of a 64gb card on one charge.

And don't skimp on the quality of your SD cards. GoPros write a lot of data quickly and the cheep ones can't keep up and will ruin your video...or just give up trying.

u/ttmmm2001 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I bought a similar small peltier style unit because my very large whole house style unit was too big. Mine (and yours) do not have an adjustable shut off point like my large one does, however I wouldn't worry too much. These only pullout less than a cup of moisture per day, more like quarter cup if that. For me it was enough to lower my humidity from 60-65% to a much better 45%. I leave it on all the time and it never goes lower than that.

Humidifiers work better when humidity is high, and decrease in efficiency as humidity gets low. I don't think a unit like this would ever reach even 20-30% before it got to a point where it just can't get anymore water out of the air.

Here's the unit I got:

Not a pellet user, but I use plastic bins for storing grain. If you're going to use a plastic bin, consider investing in a dehumidifier. The eva dry sells on Amazon for about $20 and it is rechargeable. Good for keeping your pellets mold free and dry

Collecting games and systems can be a very exciting and rewarding hobby. I would start by picking a collecting goal before embarking on this journey. Here are some items to consider.

  • Do you only collect games that you want to play, or do you want to include other criteria?
  • Do you want to collect from a single region or all regions -- such as only NA copies.
  • Just the game disc, game and cover, CIB?
  • Are you including Special Editions and cover variants?
  • Where are you going to store your collection? (Don't overlook this item and it's impact on your partner and housemates.)
  • Are you looking for promotional materials, posters, and other Wii-branded tchotchkes?

    Here are some links you may find helpful.

  • Spare Game Cases. You may find it easier to by a dozen or so and keep them handy. You may find the perfect game, but the case is ruined, has a sticker on it that won't come off, or it's just the wrong case, but the rest is fine.
  • The Cover Project. You may find that some games have missing covers. This side has a repository so you can print off Game Covers for many games and regions.
  • List of Wii Games. The fine folks at Wikipedia have curated a list of Wii games from across regions. You can peruse this list to help your formulate your collecting criteria.
  • Silica Gel Packets. I keep these stored with games packed away in boxes. Humidity is a silent killer of retro games -- Disc rot is real!
  • Mini Dehumidifier. I keep these in my enclosed bookshelves.

    Good luck and have fun!

Congrats! When we moved into our home we got this one I believe: https://www.amazon.com/First-Alert-2013F-Water-Protector/dp/B000MPMEZ2/ref=sr_1_10?keywords=first+alert+fire+water+safe&qid=1558365343&s=gateway&sr=8-10 has worked well so far, the latch is very strong, but I think the keys are a weak point on all these types of safes. I just leave ours unlocked honestly and just use it in case of fire. It has plenty of space to hold all our documents, passports, checkbooks, debit cards, birth certificates, whatever. One thing to note is that waterproof safes can get moldy. To solve that, We also put in an Eva Dry: https://www.amazon.com/Improved-Eva-dry-333-Renewable-Dehumidifier/dp/B000H0XFCS/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=dehumidifier+plug+in&qid=1558365429&s=gateway&sr=8-3 which works amazing. Just take it out every few months and plug it in for a couple hours and it's ready to go back in and keep everything dry.

u/rlaptop7 · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

Sticking it in a oven you can run at 105C for 8 hours is a great way.

Otherwise, you could build a descant bag. forget using rice, it doesn't work terribly well.

You can use descants based on calcium chloride.

The stuff is available retail as a product called "damp-rid"


Put it in a rather air-tight box with the descant device in the box. It may take days to dry the pla well.

Place a small fan in the box to circulate the air to speed things up.

Best of luck.

Yeah, your best bet is probably going to be a big box sports store or home improvement store - you probably won't be able to get a safe, just a cabinet.

As for the dehumidifiers, I would get something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Stack-On-SPAD-100-Wireless-Rechargeable-Dehumidifier/dp/B001F0IH22/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&coliid=IB29TIBYSLO33&colid=PASR3FR09ZE6

u/WhatPlantsCrave · 2 pointsr/CryptoCurrency

FYI OP, What you have there is a regular fire safe. As others have pointed out it's no good when it comes to burglars...but it's halfway decent at protecting papers and documents through a fire.

If you are worried about protection from fire and storing electronic media, DVD's etc...What you should have picked up is a fire safe rated to protect Media. They have SIGNIFICANTLY more fire protection/insulation and will give your device a much much better chance of surviving a fire. Not sure where you're located but here is one on Amazon.

Two more notes...remember fire is put out with water...so it wouldn't hurt to put your flash drive in a small watertight pelican case within your safe.
For those mentioning humidity in a safe this item does a great job and is reusable vs. many other other items which are one time use.

u/cakefizzle · 1 pointr/leopardgeckos

I read the reviews on that one as well, it appears to work best for really small spaces, like safes and storage boxes. One like this might work better for you. It says it will work on a small to medium sized room.

This is the dehumidifier I was thinking about. It doesn't have a compressor and I've read others post about using ones like this with the Peltier technology with success. Hopefully it'll work out.

If I upgrade to a larger chamber I'll probably spend a little extra and get a better controller too. But for a first one I'm hoping this works out.

I don't have an ID for you, but if they are growing in your house, that probably means the mycelium is eating the wood in the walls/floor. This is bad for many reasons, main one being your house is literally rotting away. Get some bleach/lysol/any heavy duty disinfectant, and clean the area very well. Soak it If you have too. If you don't have one already, it'll be a good idea to get a dehumidifier and leave it running for a few days to completely dry out the area. After that, keep a boat size tub of damprid in there to help prevent moisture in the walls again. If they keep growing, you'll need to get a professional to rip out all the rotten wood and replace it all. This will be expensive. Try not to let it get that bad.
Best of luck!

u/KnottilyMessy · 11 pointsr/CleaningTips

It might be the humidity. Closets are generally dark and can get damp fast. If the closet is in the basement or an enclosed area of the house with little ventilation, it can lead to must smell.

As another user commented, start by cleaning everything out and wiping down all the surfaces. If you notice mold, take precautions and call a professional cleaning service.

Once the closet is clean, you have a few options. You can use cedar wood chips like these to help keep your linens fresh smelling and free of insects (as an alternative to something like mothballs). If the humidity is a problem, then you need either a cheap hanging dehumidifier bag or a portable dehumidifier if the problem just keeps coming back.

Hope this helps!

Edit: fixed links. Also wanted to mention that whichever dehumidifier option you go with will need to be replaced/emptied regularly.

Here's mine. I run a magnetic drip tray, magnets are strong enough to support a full growler. I recently moved the gas manifold and CO2 tank outside because I had a series of leaks and that was an effort to eliminate one of the potential causes. I use an Eva Dry and a small USB fan and together they do a great job keeping things fresh and dry.

u/generic_user48 · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

Insulation question. Did a quick search and didn't find too much on what I wanted to know.

We did most of our insulation with polyiso and a little bit of reflectix to cover gaps. I doubt the reflectix will do much, but it's better than bare metal.

A friend recommended denim to stuff in the nooks and crannies, so I went ahead with that, but now I'm having some concerns about if it will mold. I've heard denim is mold-resistant, but not impervious to mold. We have a roof fan and are getting window vents to keep air flowing. I also have some passive dehumidifiers.

We aren't living in the van, just using it for (mostly) weekend trips, but maybe a one- to two-month stint here and there. We didn't install a heater, but have a Mr. Heater Portable Buddy. I know those cause quite a bit of condensation.

TLDR: should I rip out all the denim I stuffed in the nooks and crannies? I do not want to do fiberglass, and wool is a little hard to get here, AFAIK.

P.S. How do you guys do the flair? I've got a 2019 Promaster WIP.

We have 3 of these for three separate rooms where there was condensation and mold on the windows all the time, and the closets were damp. We LOVE these machines.

>A dehumidifier outside of the tent might work.

Ambient RH is 14% currently. I live in an arctic desert, so a dehumidifier outside the tent won't do much. I got something like this on the way. I don't expect it to do much , but if it gets me down 5% or so I'd be happy with it. I'm also using CaCl2 AKA Damprid, and it's brought levels down about 10% or so.

What is your RH in the tent with the PM plants? Nice looking undercurrent you got there. I'm assuming your rez is inside the tent then?

u/intldrugsmuggler · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

i'm running same size tent and i will run this in the muggy summer time. although you should keep your exhaust fan on 24/7 not only to keep humidity low but also for a constant supply of fresh air. you dont really need to run one honestly but it does help reduce mold chances and that.

It is obviously a HUGE risk, but the alternative is getting rid of it and having nothing. So, really what do you have to lose? Be creative, and do your best to weather-proof and critter proof it. They even sell mini dehumidifiers (https://www.amazon.com/Improved-Eva-dry-333-Renewable-Dehumidifier/dp/B000H0XFCS/) you could stick in the cabinet to keep it dry internally. Odds are you'll be shit out of luck in a year or so, but you are already shit out of luck with no space in the house so... good luck!

u/ZombieGrot · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

Yes, and probably better to do it that way than baking. Using heat can also drive off other volatile additives and compounds.

I'd use something like this (Just one example picked from Amazon; there are other, similar products.) for the desiccant, since it's rechargeable. Toss in an indicator strip. You're probably good when it reaches equilibrium at 20% in the container.

Once you have multiple rolls of filament, I'd suggest getting a well-sealing plastic box for them to store them with a mini dehumidifier. I got this one, no power needed except when refreshing it: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000H0XFCS/

I also found the following useful for the build which others had already mentioned:

  • a screwdriver-style Allen wrench for 2.5mm since that's by far the most frequently used
  • flush clippers
  • good illumination, get an extra lamp if needed
  • a granite countertop for checking if the frame is level

    Enjoy the build! I'd recommend using the online instructions and checking comments left by others.
u/DaoDeer · 1 pointr/3Dprinting


($6)Wires:For the MOFSET mod


($6)Wire spades:For the MOFSET mod

($8)Assorted M3 Bolts:You need some for a few mods and for the bolts you will inevitably strip on this cheap wonderful machine

($13)Longer assorted M3 Bolts:For a few mods

($9)M4 Bolts:For one of the mods

($9)Metric allen wrench set:Had to order one of these since metric tools aren’t common round these parts

(~$20) PLA of preferred choice- You’ll run out of the sample bit quick so go ahead and order a roll or two to be prepared. You will note some upgrades require ABS so a small spool of that to your order will also help.

($6)M3 Lock nuts:Critically needed for a simple mod

($10)Threaded rod and nuts:Please note that this item seemed difficult to find online. I recommend going to your local hardware store and getting two 5/16” rods of at least 16” in length. They should have an assortment of threaded rod in various lengths available. Also note that the pitch of the threading matches the nuts you buy. Further instructions regarding this can be seen in Azza’s Z-Axis braces below.)

($6)9mm Wrench for the nozzle: Don’t wait for your first clog, go ahead and have this on hand to remove/change the nozzle. Note to only tighten/loosen the nozzle when heated.

Below is the order of printable upgrades I recommend but I suggest you mix in a few other prints along the way because this is a hobby after all and you should be having fun. It helps to have your quality as tuned in as much as possible for some of these so be patient and keep trying if you need to.


Spool holder- temporary : Until you can mount your spool on top of the enclosure or any other personal preference.

Belt tensioner- print x2


Shielded stop button

Cable relocator : It’s a pain, but if you spend the time to do this and turn your extruder motor 90 degrees then you can get the full Z height without ruining your cables. It does involve opening all the cables to the PSU and feeding a few extra inches back through the cable chains.

Cable shroud : Looks nice if you do the cable relocator.

The following need to be printed in ABS:

M3 Bed Nut retainer: 10/10 upgrade. I know they look worse than the nice metal stock ones, but these help keep your bed level longer.


Glass bed Holder

Now that the first major round of printed upgrades is done it’s time to shift to a few more supplies to pick up to really fine tune the machine.


($5)Radial fan: For CiiCooler

($5)Glue sticksThis and a glass bed is magic

($25)Borosilicate glass 8” x 8”

($26)Y-Carriage plate upgrade: This has been a nice upgrade as I now only need to relevel the bed every couple weeks instead of every print. Check out this guide for a ‘how to’ as well as a free upgrade by shifting your Y pulley over.

($15)rechargeable dehumidifier: For keeping in the bin with your opened filaments

($9)Extruder gears: Might be able to hold off on these, but will need eventually. If for some reason you have a Maker Select with metal X-axis blocks (V1 and V2, but not V2.1) then this is a must. You can follow this guide for a how to.

($28)Metal extruder plate and lever: Not needed, but nice.

($14)Noctua 40mm fan: Not needed, but makes the printer a lot quitter. A LOT quieter.

($50)MicroSwiss All Metal Hot End: The destruction of my PTFE tube by this point pushed me to doing this upgrade. If needed you can follow this guide for replacement. Remember to tighten/loosen when the nozzle its hot.

($6)Ceramic cotton: Tore off the stock one when replacing for the all metal hot end by accident. At least its thicker than stock

Now that the printer is in its final form, its time for the enclosure which is a stacked Ikea Lack hack.


Spool holder

Pi Case

120mm fan cover

Fan grill

120mm fan PSU modification: I edited this to fit upside down since my PSU is mounted on the underside. This was nice since I blew the 40mm fan anyways so it made everything a lot quieter than before.

IKEA Lack filament guide

Webcam holder: This is one I designed specifically for the webcam I happen to have lying around. The camera mount piece can be changed out no problem though for what ever webcam you have or buy. The SketchUp file is included on Thingiverse for such purpose.


($20)2x Ikea Lack: Luckily there is one right down the street from me. I am located in North America though, so we do not have the STUVA, if you live literally anywhere else you may check in to this as an alternative.

($80)Plexi glass for enclosure: Could be cheaper alternatives, but it looks cool

($9)Foam pads for feet

($42)Raspberry Pi3: For OctoPrint. I also suggest using a different USB cable than the stock one provided by Monoprice or you will have issues.

($9)2x 120mm fans: Used for the power supply cooling and enclosure

($6)Rocker Switches so that the enclosure fan can be on for PLA, but off for ABS

($15)Dimmable LED lights

($10)8mm LED light connectors

$250 printer + $452 upgrades/parts + ~$80 PLA/ABS to date

But yeah, if it's cool get a nice Dehumidifier. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Frigidaire-70-Pint-Dehumidifier-Effortless-Humidity/dp/B00UWP07LK/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1518672680&sr=8-6&keywords=dehumidifier&dpID=316rM8FWZvL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

No exactly ideal, depending on your region in the country. Pick him up some of these or something similar for Christmas.


M44. The original officer filled out the form wrong.

>getting a good cleaning soon though

Good. Don't try to scrub off the existing corrosion for now. Make sure it goes into storage with a good coat of gun oil.

Eventually, you would probably like to take the barreled action out of the stock to inspect the rest of the corrosion on the piece, and re-oil the underside of the action.

Awesome setup and gorgeous woodwork!

Wanted to share some advice on the Keg Freezer setup as I have built a couple of these now.

Make sure that you have a temp controller that handles a 5 min cycle delay. Most digital temp controllers have this capability but the first one I bought did not and I had to replace the freezer after about a year due to compressor failure.

Also you mentioned moisture issues, you can take a look at these devices available on Amazon. I use these in mine and it helps quite a bit and all you have to do it plug them periodically in to re-charge.


u/gpuyy · 2 pointsr/Charcuterie

Case hardening can be a real problem, especially with a mixed-meat product like Salami / sausage / etc - can easily lead to rot.

Good that you have your humidity under control.


A controller like that with an ultrasonic humidifier will sort it out for you easily.

Add in a small & cheap computer fan and you're set

If you're in a small-ish 1 bedroom apartment, I found that the passive dehumidifiers work just fine. Maybe get a couple and keep one in a general area and one in the closet to protect your clothes and shoes. I think you can get them at any hardware store or order a reusable one off of amazon.

My roommate and I had this little guy in our bathroom to keep the moisture down and it worked great! https://www.amazon.com/Improved-Eva-dry-E-333-Renewable-Dehumidifier/dp/B000H0XFCS/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1487965909&sr=8-3-fkmr0&keywords=passive+dehumidifier

u/MoJoSto · 4 pointsr/askscience

you might also try Glycerol, but that's likely about the same viscosity as Mineral Oil. I think in terms of low volatility and still bacteria resistant, ethylene glycol (antifreeze, with or without water) would be your best bet.

You may also be able to try doping your water with a salt to keep it from evaporating. Fully saturated Calcium Chloride won't evaporate (the calcium chloride actively draws water from the atmopshere). It almost certainly wouldn't grow anything, though as a downside, if its flowing, salt crystals may creep out of the solution on to the walls of your container (especially if its really concentrated).

u/Poopkitty · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

I'm probably not a lot of help . . . but. When I have "handwash only" clothing, I wash them with a delicate detergent (like Woolite or baby laundry soap) in my washer. Only a very small load, and on the delicate cycle. On cold only. Then I take them out and hang or flat dry them. Do you have somewhere outside that you can dry clothes? The sun does an amazing job of taking out smells, even when it's cold out. They sell little flat/stackable mesh shelf thingies for flat drying sweaters and things, too. like this! Oh! And if you MUST hang things indoors, a dehumidifier helps a lot. I have this one in my bathroom. it's little and cute but effective.

u/brewerintexas · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use two of these in my fermentation chamber. It keeps everything really dry. I've found it helps the most when fermenting ales in the 60 degree range. It's a perfect environment for mold to grow. Moderate temperatures and high humidity. Since I started using those things several years ago that problem has been eliminated. Great thing is, when they're full you can just plug them into an outlet overnight and they're ready to go again.

u/nsomnac · 3 pointsr/FixMyPrint

Start with drying your filament or dumping and buying new.

Filament that’s been left out absorbs moisture just from the humidity in the air.

I bought a 5 gallon bucket along with an air tight screw top lid and one of these Rechargable Dessicant modules. Lock your filament in here, put that bucket in a warm place for a week and it should dry out. There’s a modification to this setup where you place a work light with a metal shade inside the bucket at the bottom with a low wattage bulb (40W) along with dessicant. You need a little shelf inside the bucket to sit the filament on. The turn the bulb on, close the lid, and wait overnight. You have to put holes in the bucket for this technique but it’s faster. IMO, save the $$ from building this heated chamber, buy new filament and have just the bucket with dessicant for storing when not in use.

If you have access to a large enough dehydrator or you have an oven than can go very low (100°F), that will work too.

Once you’ve dried out the filament your prints should improve. Heck I found that prints improved drastically from putting brand new filament in the bucket for a day.

u/Big_Red_Pig · 1 pointr/Leathercraft

Not sure if this is the place to ask this, but here goes. I have two nice leather jackets in a closet that is also used to store some firearms in. It's been getting fairly cold and a little humid in the room/closet, so I decided to purchase a goldenrod dehumidifier to mitigate any rust that might occur. To my knowledge, the goldenrod heats up the ambient air slightly, decreasing the humidity in the area (ideally a safe, but I'm working with what I have).

Will this environment be bad for the leather coats? They can always be moved to another closet, but will again be exposed to the cold and somewhat higher than I'd like humidity. Thanks all!

u/AtomicCrab · 2 pointsr/BookCollecting

You should look into the little rechargable dehumidifier bricks that you put into gun safes. At least we do over here in the States. Basically it's this plastic thing filled with stuff and you put it wherever and it will absorb moisture from the air in that area. It changes color when "full", then you plug it into a micro USB outlet for 10 mins or so and it is good to go. I have a dozen or so from Amazon and they work great at keeping my guns rust-free, I imagine they would do the same thing for books. Bonus points if it your bookcase has a glass front.

Hey! That’s interesting, so..

I used potassium bitartate for the sour part, no idea why honestly might have it mixed up with the citric acid or might have read that is a valid substitute.

So I can use citric acid AS a preservative?


  • if you coat in citric acid (so it takes the moister out) then place it close to a dehumidifier, would that make the dehumidification process better or worse? Because you take it out of the candy and more “readily available” to the dehumidifier.

  • my budget is under 50 bucks. I found 2 options:

  1. the Eva dry : it’s small and apparently works without battery. Has some type of crystals that absorbs water for 8-10 hours and then you place it in an open area and it “discharges the humidity”.
    Pro: I think I could put it in a big sealed tupperware with the candies,

  2. pro breeze : this one is probably bigger and uses a cord with plug. that apparently works without battery and I think is a bit bigger.
    Probably doesn’t fit in a tapperware and has a cord so wouldn’t be able to seal the tipper or the cupboard.
    Pro: probably a better product and might actually use it around the house

You might even try something like this small dehumidifier. It's what I use in my "dry box". The box sits on top of my enclosure, and has a small hole leading down into the printer. I keep 2-3 rolls of filament in it at once, and that dehumidifier.

Once the crystals turn blue, I plug the dehumidifier into the wall for a couple of hours to dry it out, and right back in the box it goes.

This system has worked great for me for the past year, and was less than $30 total.

Grab a couple of Ikea 365+ boxes with gasketed lids (792.767.60), and Eva-dry E-333 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier at Amazon to store your filament in. These gasketed bins aren't the larges,t but they do seal really well.

I also have Ikea Samla bins that I added my own gasket to and printed clips for, as well as Sterilite 24Qt latched bins as well for my filament storage..

as for their translucent filaments, what temperature are you printing with it at? I dont have the MMU2, but I do have the MK3s that has the tapered extruder. I have found that some materials require higher temps to print properly. I normally print with the AB PLA at around 210-215c, and I have not experienced any issues with that filament. Sometimes you need to print at a higher temp than what the filament says on the package with the newer extruder.

If you can swing $18, these renewable dehumidifiers do a pretty good job at keeping moisture down. Never used it in a grow tent but have used in fridges and works well. Can just plug it in for like 12 hours once it "fills up". You could probably just leave it plugged in in your tent too, but it generates a small amount of heat.

In Hawaii there's humidity everywhere and it can be bad in Hilo. If you have things you really need to keep dry like camera gear, important personal stuff I would suggest going to Costco, buy a big cooler, put you important stuff in there and also put in there some big silica gel canisters which will keep the cooler's contents nice and dry. They look like this: https://smile.amazon.com/Dry-Packs-Gram-Silica-Canister-Dehumidifier/dp/B003QZ6PZ0/

For closets you can buy dehumidifier rods. You can find them locally at stores like ACE Hardware and probably Walmart, Kmart or Target. They look like this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DBTCFGY/

For a beer you can drop by Hilo Burger Joint, Hilo Town Tavern, Cronies, I've had friends go to Margarita Village (by the pier), you can also do some tasting at Mehana/Hawaii Nui Brewing (I believe they will refill your growler if you've got one from Kona Brew Co.). I'm not really a beer drinker so other folks may know better.

As for the rain, yes Hilo can be a rainy city but the Big Island has been kind of going through a drought so I wouldn't worry too much about it right now. Kona Longs Drugs usually has sunglasses near the entrance, Hilo Longs Drugs usually has umbrellas near the entrance if that's any indication.

The bag you link will not protect against humidity and the results mold and mildew.

A dry cabinet is a good idea, especially if you live in a humid climate. If you're in the Arizona desert, maybe not quite useful.

Dry boxes are super easy to DIY. Go to the Container Store and get an airtight box that's big enough to hold all your gear. Think giant tupperware.

Buy one of these put it in the box, keep the box closed at all times and you've got what you need.

Hard to give advice without knowing more details (e.g., size of fridge).

Normally I'd say don't bother fixing your rig, just go to craiglist and get a used fridge or upright freezer, but I don't know if you can do that.

Problem with a non frost-free fridge is condensation, which will make humidity hard to control.

Some people gauge humidity with a pan of salted water. A better way would be a saturated solution like these.

I use this dehumidifier, not 100% happy but it works for me. The ones I'd like to use are more for room-sized curing chambers.

You can also use it for ageing cheese, that requires high humidity :)

I'd use a hand towel to wipe down the windows daily. You could also look into getting a small dehumidifier. I recently bought this one on Amazon to stay on top of our bathroom that never seemed to be able to dry out. I've definitely noticed a difference since starting to use it. It pulls up to 8 oz of water out of the air daily, and it's small enough to sit on the counter.

u/the_original_cabbey · 3 pointsr/3Dprinting

Having just built one based on a design a local maker was using at a demo, it's not exactly a lot of time, or money. I got one of these at the local department store for $15:

New and Improved Eva-dry E-333 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000H0XFCS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_JrTHAVxFlcbzq

And a bin something like this for $9 (note this link is to a 6 pack, shipped... way cheaper to just buy one at a local store):

Sterilite 17571706 66-Quart ClearView Latch Box, Clear lid & base with Purple Latches, 6-Pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003EH1GH2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_Ry.pzbVP0W4RB

You can size the bin to your space and expected open spool count... just look for a latching lid and a lack of holes in the bin. I found the safety stickers about not letting kids play in the bin were a good hint that they sealed air tight. :)

Drop the evadry in the bin, load it up with filament and close the lid. Done. Cost about as much as a decent kilo of filament.

Every time I get a roll out or put one back I look at the evadry. When it is showing green I pull it out and plug it in in a bathroom overnight with the fan on. I had to do that about a week after setting this up. It's been months since and I've not seen any noticeable change in its indicator.

If I wanted to get fancy I could seal up the four small holes where the latches attach... but as long as I'm not having to do a drying cycle very often I'm not going to bother.

That ziploc storage bin looks perfect! going to my local walmart to see if they have one. Would you say the silica gel is better than one of these fancy dehumidifiers?

u/mrdomino- · 4 pointsr/NewOrleans

I have this Frigidaire dehumidifier:


It has great reviews, and I love it, but it isn't quiet. Just a mild background hum similar to a PC. It's not a miracle worker, but it helps, and it's nice to have a backup source of toilet flushing water for when the water pressure dies.

I'e made these 'quilt boxes' in the past. What I've do now is use a honey super with a dehumidifier in it like this https://www.amazon.com/Improved-Eva-dry-E-333-Renewable-Dehumidifier/dp/B000H0XFCS I'll place it over the top board hole, slightly rasied to let air circulate.

I'm in New England so it does get cold for prolonged periods. I wrap my hives with the silver bubble wrap insultation, e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Improved-Eva-dry-E-333-Renewable-Dehumidifier/dp/B000H0XFCS

u/fiola256 · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

Highly recommend getting one of these and stick it into your filament box.

it works really well and when it gets too moist (you can see the color change) you just pop it onto a wallsocket for 24hr and it's goo to go again.

beats collecting the little packets of desiccant and drying them in the oven :)

I had the same problem in a place years ago. Certainly let the landlord know. As an owner, I’d want to know. However, I’m not sure if they have to do anything. Anyway, I picked up a couple of these and put them in the high humidity areas. Worked wonders. Best of luck!

Any enclosed cabinets are going to retain moisture. Most houses should be built with this in mind. If you absolutely have to have something closed in then yes, you'll want something in there (full dehumidifier, heating rod, rechargeable dessicant) to absorb excess moisture. These work great for me:

I got an old fridge on Craigslist for $25 that I thought was a small personal fridge but turned out to be about 6 cubic feet (perfect for hanging). I’m not sure of the brand actually (maybe Kenmore). So far I’ve done a Bresaola and a Copa, both have turned out great!

u/MollydelMuerte · 2 pointsr/soapmaking

I keep mine on a wire shelving unit leftover from my college days (similarish to this
https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B06Y3M91XD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_uVMFzb0HH8QPN but with smaller spaces between the wires). I have no idea what kind of coating (if any) the metal has, so I lined the bottoms with parchment paper. Like you, I've only been soaping for a few months, but I haven't had any problems with reaction/rust. My soaps currently live in my bedroom, partially hidden from sunlight (due to space; I didn't even think about light when positioning it, to be honest). I keep my ceiling fan on all the time, and since I live in a humid climate, I also got a little mini dehumidifier that sits right next to the soap (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00LVN7BM0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_XYMFzb9PQ3QDM). I haven't experienced any orange spots.

If you find a cheap shelving system that's otherwise perfect, you might be able to rig up some inexpensive fabric curtains that would still allow for air flow but block some light.

u/CosmicRuin · 1 pointr/astrophotography

That's exactly what I was after as well. I'm also living in a Yellow-Red zone, and as my first adventure into permanent pier mounted and remote (powered & LAN) imaging, this seemed like the better/cheaper solution.

Brim Observatory

Photos of the build and finished observatory

I ended up coming across a design called Motel o' Scope on CN forums, and built the cement pier (12") and latch cover over the summer of 2016. It has survived almost two full seasons without issues, and two Canadian winters - this winter in particular has seen a lot of snow and -20C nights! I have a small ceramic bulb heater on a thermostat that keeps the inside around 5 degrees. My mount, scope and PC live outside now permanently.

It's an ingenious design really! The cover is latched in four places, two each side, and I added weather stripping and vinyl flashing over the bottom edges to prevent any rain running inwards. The scope is parked facing up, and the cover just lifts up and off, which I set on a tarp during use. I've had no issues with leaks or wind damage. To control the humidity inside (an issue during the Summer especially) I keep two Eva-dry Silica Renewable packs. They keep the humidity around 35-40%.

Dan's Pier Plates that makes the Motel o Scope hardware, also sells the pier mount plates. He provides all of the custom aluminum hardware to build the cover brackets and base. You do need to source the other materials yourself, like the foam board - he provides a detailed parts list, and was very helpful to deal with.

The aluminum hardware at the bottom clamps with rubber stripping under pressure against the concrete pillar, using long bolts/nuts - so it's easily detached if you ever needed to disassembled and remove the base altogether. There's a sealed board as a base surrounded by T-slot extruded aluminum framing. The actual cover is made of 1.5" hard-foam insulation board from Home Depot, and wrapped in Dacron fabric, primed and sealed, and painted with a UV reflective white acrylic paint - same sealing materials and processes used on small body winged aircraft.

u/Iandidar · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

Sure. It's not an original idea, I saw it on here and it looked like a good idea as I live in a very humid area. (76% average, 89% average in the mornings)

The box isn't anything special, it's just a zip lock weather proof bin I got a Lowes, similar to this.

Tossed in with the spools I have this little dehydrator.

The original post went much further than I did, putting in a shaft to run the filaments on and holes to feed them it through. I just store the spools and take them out as needed.

u/wintyfresh · 3 pointsr/GoRVing

Sounds like a nice setup! I pressure wash my trailer at the end of the season to get the dirt off and clean the gutters before the torrential summer rains the SoCal deserts see. If you're leaving it for long stretches some bug and moisture protection is probably a wise investment.

u/NoxiousDogCloud · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I have one of these, and for the budget minded it's not a bad deal. I think you'd be taxed to get 8 guns in there, but it's doable. Just don't put the popular one at the back or you'll have to empty the safe just to get at it.

And if you're looking for a storage cabinet, you could knock some shelves together and just use this thing to store ammo. It's handy.

A month or two ago they had the 8-gun safe on sale, so I upgraded to that. They're about the same size.

Don't forget a dehumidifier!

u/xrayphoton · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Looks good. I would suggest installing a computer fan to circulate air. You can wire it into an old cell phone charger to power it. And if you notice the freezer is getting damp inside, you can get a dehumidifier like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00BD0FN8A/ref=sxts1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494472933&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65

Thanks a lot!!! I was really unsure of which of the two to get, but Damprid seems to be more popular. And I do plan on fanning for 2 days beforehand.

u/boxsterguy · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I like the eva-dry renewable dehumidifiers. I got the two pack and use one in the keezer and one in my fermentation chamber. When the balls turn blue, just plug it in for a couple of hours to renew.

For a drip tray, I bought some strong magnets and mounted them on the tray. That's strong enough to hold a glass or two if I need to set one down, but still comes off easily enough for cleaning.

I haven't done a fan yet. I didn't think I needed one, but I've started getting some "first pull" foaming issues lately that I believe is due to temperature differentials for the beer in the line at the shank/faucet vs. in the keg. I haven't decided what I'm going to do about that yet.

u/mustrdgasnroses · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

It certainly can be a problem. I have a gun safe (fireproof & "waterproof") that I also utilize for MTG, and have had only mild problems, but the relative humidity in my home is on the low side.

If you're looking at a small document style safe (1.3 - 2.5 cu. ft), I recommend a cheap wireless dehumidifier like this:


The above is essentially the exact same product that Stack-On (a lower end gun safe manufacturer) markets to dehumidify their safes, but without the Stack-On branding and it's about $10 cheaper.

u/Lilusa · 1 pointr/needadvice

You can get some pretty cheap on amazon:

Also try opening the window.

u/heehee62 · 0 pointsr/vandwellers

There's ones made specifically for rvs now. Maybe the one tested before was just for closets. Most reviews seem pretty good on it.


u/alf3311 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Condensation is somewhat inevitable but you can combat it by making sure the keezer is as airtight as possible. Get a tube of silicone and seal up any gaps around the faucet shanks, thermometer probe wiring, etc. If the top of your collar is uneven you should also try to rectify that.

Once the freezer is pretty airtight you can deal with the rest of the moisture with one of these Eva-dry rechargeable desiccants (it will absorb moisture, then periodically you take it out and plug it in and it will heat up to drive the moisture off. Repeat.)

u/BloodofBoudicca · 3 pointsr/homemaking

You are correct to paint the surfaces. I recommend a product like this.

The humidifiers you have chosen are too small. Get two, one for each side of your home. And get bigger ones. Maybe like this one.

I would also take pictures of the water condensing on the walls. Document everything you are having to do including the money you are having to spend to make your home "livable" and protect the property of the the landlord. Stay in communication with the landlord and ask if you can deduct some or all of these expenses from the rent since you are helping to prevent mold damage to the property. Mold is dangerous and it is nothing to mess around with. I don't know what the laws are where you live, but the landlord should be inclined to help with this problem.

If the problem persists or the landlord is not responsive it might be a good idea to find another place to live when your lease is finished.

u/isanyonekeepingtrack · 3 pointsr/3Dprinting

My guess would be old filament as well, probably soaked up a bit of moisture making it even more brittle. You're printing PLA? I use 1.75mm and if I leave the filament loaded the unspooled part will become brittle and crack after a few days. Make sure you're storing your filament in a plastic container with a good desiccant pack when not using it.

u/anonymousforever · 1 pointr/RandomKindness

it's a product here in the us that is a moisture-absorber product. here is an example of the product as available on amazon. They have different bin sizes and even one that you can hang in a closet to keep clothes from smelling musty.

Hope this helps explain it. oh, and a bin type like this example would also keep pets from getting into it.

u/Arudinne · 2 pointsr/Prusai3MK3

I have 6 of these: https://www.amazon.com/Ziploc-WeatherShield-Quart-Storage-Clear/dp/B00MWTJXHS

And one of these in each: https://www.amazon.com/Eva-dry-333-Renewable-Dehumidifier-2-PACK/dp/B00LVN7BM0

It's worked well for me as I've yet to have an issue with moist filament, but I print in an upstairs room where the humidity rarely goes over ~35% unless it's raining, in which case it can get as high as 50%.


PLA is less susceptible to issues regarding moisture but that does not make it immune. AFAIK all of the common filaments (PLA, PETG, ABS & Nylon - more or less in that order) can all become moist.

I'd suggest getting a humidity sensor such as this one and see what the humidity is like in your basement: https://www.amazon.com/AcuRite-Accuracy-Temperature-Humidity-Monitor/dp/B01HDW58GS

Also, in my experience most PLA doesn't usually have much noticeable odor. What brand of filament are you using?


You may want to consider a dry box setup such as one of these:

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2778707 (I am working on something similar to this one... eventually)


There are also commercially available options.

u/ItIsNeverSimple · 1 pointr/NFA

Good looking setup OP. Add you a dehumidifier you can recharge and you will keep it from trapping moisture in there. I have two of these I rotate.

u/snyper7 · 3 pointsr/3Dprinting

Yup - two of each of those, mounted one in front of the other to double the depth. The specific top/bottom/left/right walls are these: small, large. The doors are Glassvik (small, large).

The lights are Omlopp spotlights on the top and Omlopp countertop lights on the bottom. There are ballasts and other stuff required too.

The shelf is a piece of melamine board and these shelf posts. The camera mount is one of these, although I'd probably go with something a little nicer if I were to do it again, and the cameras are these. I also have three of these dehumidifiers in the top and this humidity monitor. The door on the top is lined with this weatherstripping.

The rest of the construction is random hardware (brackets, screws, etc), and gaff tape.

If you aren't going to get a safe, you could get/make a wood box and put a goldenrod in it.


It's just a little like 1 watt heater, doesn't get hot just warm. Does wonders for preventing rust.

You don't need a goldenrod brand there's chinese ones cheaper (frankford arsenal or whatever)

u/Faloopa · 2 pointsr/Miata

A trombone brush works great for cleaning the drains behind the seat belt towers. Just be careful pushing it all the way through and yanking it back out: there are little rubber flaps at the bottom that can rip off if you jam them too hard.

As far as the water in there now, soak up as much as you can, dry with a hair dryer (being careful not to burn or melt the carpet), and if it's still a little damp an RV Dehumidifier can remove the rest of the moisture in the cabin.

u/Liberatingvoice · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

You are already ahead of the game with a air purifier and dehumidifier. Be sure to keep the dehumidifier empty. Also, there are lots of house plants that help with cleansing the air.

When I lived in basement apartments, I also used these types of products in my closets. They seemed to help.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

If you have standing water in your keezer you have a problem. I was having a lot of foaming issues with my keezer for about a year after I built it. As well, had lots of standing water in the bottom of the freezer all the time, and lots beading around on the inside walls.

Air circulation will help. I rigged up a couple of computer fans to some PVC pipe to suck air from the bottom and blow it around up top. Small rechargeable dehumidifiers also help, I have 2 of these in my keezer. One over by the fans on the bottom, and one on the opposite side on the hump next to my co2 tank. Insulating your collar will help too. I bought some rigid foam insulation and cut it go to around the wooden collar on the inside to help keep the cold better.

u/kbdrand · 1 pointr/cannabiscultivation

Why can't you buy a little portable dehumidifier? Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Breeze-Electric-Dehumidifier-Portable/dp/B01DC5PPWM/ref=sr_1_4?crid=37132OOBRTX9&keywords=dehumidifier&qid=1556039481&s=gateway&sprefix=dehumid%2Caps%2C149&sr=8-4

I would stick with the blowing the fan on the plants while hung. If you dry in a box, and for some reason something goes wrong and your fan dies you have more of a chance of humidity building up inside a smaller, enclosed space.

u/nacho2100 · 1 pointr/Charcuterie

Thanks for the critique. Here is a link to the dehumidifier

Essentially its a dehumidifier that sucks moisture out of the air. When it is plugged in, the heating coil causes the beads to release their moisture, essentially recharging the ability to dehumidify. I was hoping that by turning the circuit on with an inkbird or other hygrostat, I could set the dehumidifier to release moisture should my chamber get too dry.

Yes, condensation is going to be a factor if you don't take steps to keep it dry in cold weather.

I picked up These, and although they are currently unavailable they provide cheap insurance and piece of mind. Here is the next best deal I could find.

u/froggyrobotP · 7 pointsr/guns

That’s a good idea and make sure to get some rechargeable dehumidifiers...(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000H0XFCS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_-nMMDbAPMWAB7)

u/coug_dude · 3 pointsr/guns

I use a pair of these in the safe:

And make sure you oil you guns

u/mchicke · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I use this thing to prevent this problem. Works great.

u/wdjm · 1 pointr/DIY

Get a dehumidifier and/or find the water leaks. Even something like this would likely help.

u/atworkaccount789 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I have a similar set up with room for a carboy. When I started I had issues with leaks as well. Several inexpensive purchases have made all the difference:

  1. Use Metal Screw Ties on each end of all hoses: https://www.cabletiesunlimited.com/48s-all-stainless-steel-hose-clamp.html?fee=1&fep=1575&gclid=CjwKCAjwyOreBRAYEiwAR2mSkgiOzu-NcMud2_7SY3QnpViiOOjpOdYbQlTiXqrc3ShRpnI079ETQRoCt1wQAvD_BwE

  2. Use Keg lube: https://www.amazon.com/Learn-Brew-Keg-Lube-Lubricant/dp/B0114B4LBM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1541099323&sr=8-5&keywords=keg+lube

  3. Oftentimes the piece that connects the hose to the keg is actually 2 separate pieces. Make sure to use a wrench to tighten this as tightly as possible.

  4. Replace the O-ring between the CO2 bottle and valve semi regularly.

    Hopefully those four things should help cut down on any leaks. You can do all of them for under $20. You can also buy a cheap dehumidifier on Amazon to help with condensation issues:


    Last, I found who fills the CO2 bottle can make a huge difference. The bottle actually needs to be chilled to get a full charge of CO2. My local fish store is significantly cheaper to fill, but they never give a good fill; I have to pay extra at the Homebrew store to have them do it right.

I've used Stack-On SPAD-100 Wireless Rechargeable Dehumidifier for Stack-On Long-Gun Safes or something similar at a couple different jobs now, and they're great for places that don't have ovens available. Let them do their job, and plug them in overnight when they need recharging.

u/TSwizzlesNipples · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I had a Soleus that I got from Menards and the pump quit on me in about 2 months. I threw it out and got this. Works great.

u/totally78 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I have been using the slightly smaller E-333 and its been great so far.

u/Cecilia5026 · 1 pointr/Frugal

Just bought the mini version and this guy. Fairly inexpensive and work great.

u/Sxty8 · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

A renewable desiccant dryer would be a great addition to the filament cab.


I use this in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid to keep my filaments dry.

u/deadme4t · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Something like this might fit the bill.

u/bobroberts1954 · 1 pointr/Cartalk

Sop the water out and check it any time it rains. Get several pails of desicant to start sucking up the moisture. You can find such in the paint section and you can recharge it in your oven if funds are tight. That should hold till the shop is ready, it's probably something simple like the trunk gasket.

u/DrWangerBanger · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I have this one and I'm very happy with it. I only recently found out you're not supposed to use extension cords with it (or any other dehumidifiers) so maybe keep that in mind.

u/HarryButtwhisker · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

This right here

My first one I bought wouldn't even touch humidity, even though rated for that size room. Another redditor recommended this one and it has been nothing but perfect. It would pull a gallon of water from the air before lunch, finally installed a drain hose so I don't have to worry about emptying. It is now 100% maintenance free.

u/zero10 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Thanks for mentioning this! The shipping to Canada is prohibitive but this encouraged me to look on amazon.ca and I found these ones:


They are CDN $38.99 for a 2-pack or $24.99 each and seem to be about the same size as the Eva-Dry E333. I just ordered a pair that should be here in about 10 days. I've had a moisture problem in my keezer that is causing rust and mold and it would be nice to solve it!

u/mrs_shrew · 2 pointsr/needadvice

keep the area well ventilated and your windows open as much as possible. this has built up over quite a long time, most likely due to poor air circulation. wash your clothes and dry them thoroughly before hanging them up. buy a mini dehumidifier and keep it in the closet ( i got mine off amazon)

buy some mildew remover and wipe it over often, but be careful because that stuff is pure chlorine so will bleach EVERYTHING it touches.

to be honest i would remove all your clothes out of there and put them somehwere else, and have the closet for stuff you don't care about.

u/houndazs · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

I don't, but once looked into one of these. Maybe now is a good time to get one, because of this.

u/jasongill · 6 pointsr/Tools

on a more serious note, you need to get Zerust capsules and put them in your toolbox/drawers. A dehumidifier (especially one with a gravity drain to outside, or a pump to drain it automatically) in the shop helps quite a bit, too.

You need to get the humidity down. Even a dessicant canister or one of the renewable dessicant canisters will help

u/deltadude · 1 pointr/Frugal

They make the thermostats for converting chest freezers to kegerators. The temp sensor has thin wire that can run under the lid seal and one of these seems like the solution for condensation.

u/L_Cranston_Shadow · 2 pointsr/Silverbugs

>Maybe try some of those silica gel packets?

I've had a decent amount of success with reusable dehumidifying systems. This is the one I'm using now, although it's too soon to tell how it'll hold up in the long run (I've had it 4 months and so far so good though).

u/BajingoWhisperer · 1 pointr/Miata

My car gets like that if I leave it sit a week or two. I put one of these in the car last winter car was definitely drier but I also put a new top on last year.

u/atlanticbrewsupply · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

Either of those methods should work. Air it out for a couple of days after. Also I'd totally recommend a dehumidifier that you keep in the unit. I have a little rechargeable one that I was recommended by /r/homebrewing a couple years ago - the EVA-500 or similar.

u/crustymoldman · 1 pointr/Charcuterie

"Eva-Dry Dehumidifier" on Amazon. You can also try "Gurin Dehumidifier"


I have this one (it's not too big: 6.8 x 8.5 x 14)


Smaller one (which probably means it's takes longer to lower humidity)


To give you an idea what to expect when the dehumidifier turns on, here is a chart -- I have a bunch of temp/humidity sensors connected to an Arduino that uploads to the cloud and keeps history :)

  • http://imgur.com/DLmhnrv
  • The lines in the 76-80 range are humidity.
  • The lines in the 52-57 range are temperature.
  • When humidity reaches ~80, the dehumidifier turns on and pulls it down to ~77. Though the dehumidifier turns on @ 80, you can see there's a slight lag in moisture reduction because humidity climbs to 82.
  • It takes 5 minutes to lower the humidity from 80 to 77.
  • When the dehumidifier kicks on, it's generating heat so the fridge gets warmer which you can see in the temperature stair-stepping. Implying that your fridge will cycle slightly more often (in my case hourly).
  • The really big dips down in humidity are when the fridge cycles (cools). It temporarily sucks all that moisture but it quickly returns :)
u/thefirstgrowaway · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Thank you, I wish that would fit in my tent, but I can only buy the smaller ones as it has to go below my scrog, these are the ones I've been purchasing https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HXVUT7C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Stainless can still rust, though not as early. In either case, if you take care of your guns you'll be fine. No need for stainless unless you just like the aesthetics. Clean them after trips out in the rain, fog, marsh etc to get moisture out, then store them in a dry place. If you're really worried about it get some gun socks for $5 a piece and a dehumidifier of some sort and throw them in a closet. I just bought a couple of these ones that are well reviewed. I plan on putting one in my gun closet for extra rust prevention, though I wasn't having a problem with it anyway. The others are for a poorly ventilated bathroom and backups.
