Rated 5 out of 5Â by dcline Makes a Real Difference
I ordered these moisture absorbing hanging bags to put in our laundry room and two closets. Each location borders the garage or an outer wall and none have an HVAC vent to help circulate air. Because of this, these locations tend to be warmer and more humid than the rest of the house in the summer.
I felt that I immediately noticed a difference the day after hanging these in each of the three locations, but not seeing any liquid collected I convinced myself that it was only a placebo effect. However after a month of use the bottom of each bag was indeed full of moisture removed from the air, and clearly the difference I noticed was indeed real.
Disposal and replacement is somewhat inconvenient, but much cheaper than adding ductwork and more convenient than a permanent solution. These are definitely a quick and easy temporary solution for humid locations

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kens Works well as advertised
We placed one bag in the water pump and water softener room under the basement stairway, and one unit in the basement room where the furnace and water are located. I'm no chemist, but within days, the dry material in the upper part of the bag began pulling moisture out of the air and the bottom part of the bag had water in it. The rest of the basement living area has a de-humidifier set at 40 and the basement is not damp at all. This really works.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mykhailo I tried one for me and in a week I recommended this wonderful absorber to my neighbor
That was'n easy to find the right moisture absorber on Internet - too many of everything. But when I came to Home Depot, I asked for assistance and got help at once! You'll find these absorbers in the department of paints.
Thank you Home Depot!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PJCC Hanging design is better than their refillable containers. Fresh smell that's not overwhelming!
Unlike many products I experienced for the first time from Home Depot, this was an old product I was very familiar with. I recently purchased the Refill Pouch to use in my DIY container.
The hanging design works in a household of pets. The smell is fresh and doesn't overwhelm the senses or bring on sneezes. It has a MFG date stamped on it.
A poorly designed closet with no vent next to a shower, in humid Florida yet, is never used to hang my clothes because of moisture. This is attractive and absorbs quickly.
As a DIYER, my first instinct was to create a way to refill the pouch. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jayp Very Effective Dehumidifying Action
I hung the moisture absorbing pack in our clothes closet about 10 days ago. I live about 200 yards from the ocean, and the house environment is very humid. I enjoy the fresh air in our home, and therefore don't like to leave my house closed and conditioned, unless the temperature is very hot (80's). However, I try to minimize the dampness in my clothes closets by keeping the closet doors closed. I find it difficult to judge the moisture content in the air unless it is overly hot and oppressive, But today, I observed about 6 oz of water in the collection bag of the pack which suggests to me that this pack is doing it's job. It feels comfortable in the closet area and the clothes are clean and dry.
In the past, I had also used this absorbing pack in my car, after I had inadvertently left the car door window open during a rain storm. In that case, it took about 2 weeks, but the dampness on the seats and carpet were substantially reduced using this product, and the reservoir in the pack was completely filled with water. However, the pack did not remove the musty smell that had accumulated -- it was necessary to air out the car (in the garage) and use other products designed to eliminate smell.
This is a good product intended for small enclosed areas.
