Skipper the cigar aFISHinodo Wrote:Pete, I live on Long Island. It is very humid here in the summer. When I used the beads I used 65%. If it isn't difficult to return and exchange for the 65's go for it. They are expensive and you may find the 70's too wet for your liking. Besides, at 70% you are flirting with mold issues if the temp goes a little high. And yeah, I think your mixing theory would be right.    
   Good call, Skipper... not that I doubted you.  I've had my 65% beads in my coolidor for a few days now.  My RH% has yet to hold a perfect 65%, but I've pretty much been around 67% for most of the weekend - which is fine with me.  It shot up to 70% yesterday morning when I was digging around for a stick, but as you know it was fairly humid all weekend. 
     Regardless, the additional "cushion" for RH% deviation has proven beneficial.  If I had the 70% beads, and my RH% shot up like it did yesterday - I might've had problems.  With the Summer heat and humidity soon upon us, I don't need that worry... especially with my first box purchase on the way!  Thanks, Skipper!

     Had to resurrect this thread, as it's meant to be hot and very humid for days on end in the Northeast.  My coolidor peaked at 75-degrees yesterday while I was at work, so I moved it down to the basement.  Of course, that won't help in keeping my RH% down.  I have 65% beads, and I'm floating around 70%-71% at the moment. 

     So, what should I do to help keep the RH% low?  More specifically, I've not spritzed the beads for a couple days.  Since the humidity is too high, should I NOT spray them?

     I may be wrong, but I'm thinking you can only use water - and distilled water at that.

You mean the 50/50 stuff?  Don't do it.

I have read not to use anything but distilled water with beads.
