Anybody try the less expensive Zorb-It or even the Humidipak sold my Planet Waves? I know there were humidy control products available for industrial use and came across the Zorb-It site.

I can't get my wife to use the air conditioner as much as I'd like, and I tire of schlepping my guitars to and from the dehumidifier in the basement.

Any suggestions for desiccants on the cheap?

Thanks for any opinions or input here.

Hello, I have been using the Zorb-it now for the past two summers. I like the product, I use two 4x4" pads in the case
of my D-03R. It keeps the inside case humidity below 60 %. Later in the summer the pads seem to max out and not work as well. I "dry" them out by rotating them in our computer room at work- 40 % humidity. This seems to keep them more active. I don't use an external  dehumidifier.or have AC - as I live in upstate NY, but summer gets, sticky. I take them out in the winter and use a dampit. They are reusable- like a desiccant but a different formula. I may buy a third pad this year, to always keep one "fresh",and rotate out. They don't cost much and the folks at Zorb-it are great to work with.

Thanks.

I don't want to fight with my wife over turning the AC, and I placed an order today.
