3. Should the container be air tight?

Yes, HyDry™ will adsorb humidity from whatever air it can reach. If the container is not air tight, HyDry™ will adsorb humidity from the air that is outside as well as inside the container, rendering HyDry™ much less effective.

7. How do I know when to replace HyDry™?

For long-term storage: If the recommended amount of HyDry™ is used and if the container is truly airtight, 3 months is a reasonable time span between replacing or recharging HyDry™ . HyDry™ should be recharged or replaced whenever the container is opened, or whenever the contents show evidence of humidity intrusion. For frequently opened containers: Once the protected space has been breached repeatedly, beyond a total time of about one hour (this time will vary depending on humidity in the surrounding air), HyDry™ may no longer be effective and new or recharged HyDry™ may be required.
