    Default DampRid, drying crystals, or Similar?

    Rain is really getting to me (and I never thought I'd be sun starved in the DR). I put all my clothes out to dry a few days ago and now my closet is starting to smell like mold again.

    Is there anything similar to DampRid here?

    I've never used this or similar products, but I remember them being referenced in pre-AC era Florida. I guess I could find a house with AC instead.

    I think I used to buy damprid in Pricesmart when I lived in a humid apartment.

    I'm thinking of biting the bullet and trying to buy a dehumidifier.

    that's what I did later after using damprid (and we were going to have a newborn) worked like a charm. 7000 pesos if I recall well.

    There is a local band that is a LOT less expensive than DampRid.

    We'd buy one DampRid for the little plastic container, and then refill with the less expensive local brand that comes in a bag.

    My girlfriend said that "es para los ricos" and the dominicans just wait for the weather to change. I replied that I qualify.

    I'll go hunting. The dehumidifier sounds good too. I'm sure it kick off some heat as well.
