I just bought D'Addarios two way humidification system, and a hygrometer to measure humidity in my acoustic cases. Living in South Carolina where we're about 20 inches over average rainfall this year it has been very humid (above 90% most of the time for several months). Of course it is not that humid inside my house or my guitar cases, but I find that the humidity reading inside the guitar cases is about 65% which is higher than I would like. As the weather gets colder and I turn the heat on I'm sure indoor humidity will drop, but may not do that for another month or so. So what is recommended to remove some humidity from the guitars? I put some "dryrite" packets in each case. I assume they are silica gel. It brought the humidity down a little, but it is still higher than I would like. The packets I used were old and have been sitting in the room where I keep my guitars absorbing moisture for a long time. Any ideas other than silica gel packs or bamboo charcoal? I did read one guy who said you blow your hair dryer in there, but that didn't sound like such a good idea.
