cat litter

Post by Subsonicnat » 05 Feb 2019, 22:02

Hi Guys,
Have you been suffering misted windows.???. if so,,,,,
Two Socks,Preferably washed,lol,,, FILL The Foot Part With CAT LITTER.
Just Twist the top couple of times,,,TURN BACK OVER ITS SELF.
Put The Second sock over the First,,Twist once,,DOUBLE BACK Just to make it neat..
Leave in for a couple of days,it should start working,After a few Weeks/Months depends if you have a wet dog in and out,,under normal conditions nearly all winter..
if it stops working because it is too damp,POP ii in the MICROWAVE for 10 mins..
Good as New..
Cat Litter about £1:50 for a VERY BIG BAG..
Make them up for the whole family,, or put some 1/2 in that room that always seems cold..
I have one in the shed as well,does need heating after about a month though,Damp in there.
Does the job though..My Daughter is over the moon with the ones I gave her,,Does have a dog who likes water though...

That's how propreitary dehumidifiers (are supposed to) work - except they don't!

Any particular type of litter? A sock full of the cheapest kind that got damp would be seriously unpleasant.

Hi Van,
Well I bought mine from ASDA,it cost about £1:50 for a huge bagfull.
No it doesn t smell at all, it is NEW LOL..
Have Had Mine in the Front dash for about 2 months now,and the daughter has her s in for nearly the same amount of time,but she does have a wet dog in the car at times,So did suffer misted windows..{NOT ANY MORE}. :-)).
Swears by it in fact.. Would put it in the microwave more often than me for said reason..
I have one in the shed as well,it did get quite heavy with damp,But 10 mins in microwave sorted that out as well..I DO HAVE QUITE A LOT LEFT THOUGH.
Giving it away to family there is so much.. :-)).

I wasn't thinking of the smell but the fact that the cheap (china clay?) stuff turns to sticky white mud when damp. There are still grey patches on the road outside the house where I'd sprinkled it on oil spillages 2 or 3 years ago.
