    Kitty litter set- up.

    So many of you have P.M me regarding Kitty Litter set up. Figured i would get you all started here are the basics.

    Whats the R/H in your Home?
    I ask you this because in new York where i am it is close to 90% outside right now 75% in the house. I have been running dry litter in my humi since spring. I probably wont add water till December soon as the heat goes on full time. Even then i run a humidifier in my home. and try to keep it no less than 50% in the home at all times. so i add just enough water to bring it up to the 60-63% i am looking for. You see the litter pulls the excess moisture out of the air. My humi is 60 -63% running dry litter. Since April if it gets dry for a couple of days then it releases the moisture it has collected. So hydration is really not necessary unless it is dry for extended periods of time. Like winter when it gets bone dry. Then i add an oasis set at 65% the litter does the rest. An active passive set up. Many of you tell me you add water to the litter and the R/H is 80%. That's because you shouldn't be adding anything . When the R/H in your home is higher than you want in your humidor. Even then never hydrate more than 50% of the litter. Hope this answers your questions.

    My office hovers around 50%rH, I put in plenty of litter, sprayed it lightly (about 40-50% wet) and it holds at 65%rH like magic. I'd swear this stuff was designed for humidors. Even with winter approaching the rH doesn't change significantly in the house here in North Texas. We'll see what happens but I don't expect much to change.

    As a side note, try mentioning kitty litter on some of those *other* places on the internet! They all swear you're crazy! Talk about a flame war! The bottom line is, just try it! If you watch your hygro until you are convinced then you have nothing to lose but $10 for 10lbs of litter. Compare that to the $32/lb for the beads! I'm sure the beads work and are a great product specially made for the purpose, but I swear to you that the litter does too.

    Remember, we aren't talking about the gravel type gray rocks that you automatically think of with kitty litter. These are white and opaque, just like the other stuff. It honestly looks nothing like kitty litter. Just call it gel and nobody knows the difference.

    Thanks for the info, I was actually wondering about this the other day. Lots of people talking about using kitty litter but not actually explaining how it's done!

    I'll probably try this when I move to a winecooler...

    I went with the KL on a second whine-a-dor and you were spot on with the set up. I appreciate you sharing the info.

    I have no use for cats they are to selfish! Love dogs they are kind loving compassionate, but kitty litter is alright!

    What kind of kitty litter am I looking for? I have shilalas beads in my humi and cannot get it below 72%. It's about 75 in my home. And how much would
    I need for a vino 28?

    Any unscented silica will work. Put a small dish or Tupperware full in a humi i guarantee in no time you be around 60%. In a vino 28 start with 2 pounds add as necessary.

    for what its worth I have a 50 bottle fridge and have about 4 lbs mostly dry in mine. I find that the cooling plate in the back will condense and release water when it cools/warms and the litter just regulates the humidity.
