Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 500ml Dehumidifier Desiccant / Silica Tub for Damp, Moisture & Mold
I have never tried one of these before and OH BOY!! it really works.
I used it in my bedroom as I live in an old house and does get very damp, especially the windows (not double glazed).
It is a 3' X 4' window so not too big but I am amazed at how well this thing can absorb the moisture.
After 3 days of use it is noticeably heavier because of the water it has absorbed. The sunshine (if we ever get any) will help to dry it up in the daytime.
The top half of the container is full of the absorbent beads and the bottom half is where the water drips into through a filter.
The instructions said the white beads will eventually turn to a jelly which will then come to the end of it's life.
I will come back and let you all know how long this has lasted but remember my house is a damp house but yours could last a lot longer anyway.
I received this in 24 hours of ordering so no problems with the seller.
It is lovely to get up in the morning and see there is only very little mist on the window glass. Normally the water is running down the glass.
If you have a bigger window than mine then maybe you will need more than 1 but at this price it is well worth it.
When you take off the lid for it's first use, be sure to not take the absorbent white membrane off with it as this needs to stay on.
I presume it has to stay on for safety as not to have the white absorbent beads showing.
I will definitely buy some more from this seller because at £1.65 and free delivery you just cannot go wrong.
So if you have a damp room or a damp shed or a damp anything, this will be ideal to keep the moisture at bay.
I do not think it will be much good in a very wet room such as the bathroom but certainly good enough for a damp bedroom.
