Musty Instrument cases: Damp Rid is wonderful for removing must.
Damp Rid is designed to be used in the container it comes in, but this
may be too big for the instrument case--you may have to improvise. Once
you've shut the Damp Rid in the case, you should probably leave it
there undisturbed for several weeks. If you open the case to take a
peek to see how it's working, you will allow the case to fill back up
with humid air & the Damp Rid will have to pull all of that new
moisture out of the air. Be careful not to bump the case--as the Damp
Rid absorbs moisture out of the air, it dissolves, leaving an orange
liquid in the container. Jeanne
