Don't think you need this if your car has air conditioning as this takes the moisture out of the air.

See a lot of people with fogged up screens and think they must have their blower fans off or the air recycling button on.

I have three of these (one for each car in the family) and I think they're great. Even if your car has air con you can still get a build up of condensation on the windscreen when you're parked overnight (depending on the atmospheric conditions). These little things really do work and I've never woken up to a misted windscreen since I've had them. You just have to remember to "recharge" them by putting them in the microwave or sitting them on a radiator for a couple of hours when the blue circle on the bag turns pink. I paid about £6 each for mine so this is a great price.

Would this work in my kitchen cupboards I wonder. I live in an end of terrace and all my cabinets get really damp in winter and the refillable dehumidifiers are costing me an arm and a leg

I haven't tried them indoors but I can't see why they wouldn't work. If they can dehumidify an entire car then I would imagine they could easily dehumidify a cupboard. Alternatively, have you tried just leaving the cupboard doors open overnight?

Why is this listed as a tesco direct deal ? It's no good to most, but a tesco direct deal is available to all.

Thank you for pointing this out. I've just realised it's listed under a Tesco direct deal. It was probably because an auto-text when I posted this. I think I need moderator to edit this. I couldn't update the Merchant.

These are excellent, great for saving a few minutes in the morning and after work.

​Thanks for that might just buy one and see how it goes. left the cupboards open but that's not helped as three other gardens butt up to my kitchen wall so the soil from that makes the wall cool. I open the doors and windows when cooking but no use it's just 3 bottom cupboards the furthest point of the house which have an issue. was considering putting a sheet of insulation in the back of the cupboard and see if that helps at all.

That definitely sounds like it's worth a try. In the meantime, if you're already spending money on dehumidifier refills then I think it definitely makes sense to give one of these a try, even if you have to pay £6-£7 on Amazon.

voted hot with credit to the OP, not for the tesco specific deal but for bringing the product to my attention. I've needed something like this, but never gone out to find out if such a thing exists!

I already have the "Rechargeable Desiccant Mini Dehumidifier" that can be recharged by plugging-in into power socket, but that one takes a long time to recharge. And more expensive as well. I used it for my dry box. But this one is more efficient which only need 6 minutes microwave to recharge.

​​It sounds like you need an electric dehumidifier. It is well worth the initial outlay. We haven't had any issues with damp or condensation since getting one. We have a 'meaco' branded one which is great.

Suppose you could break them up and put them into little cotton bags and use them in your biscuit tin. If you could attach it to the lid, and away from the food.

One thing that I would like to pointed out, this item is useful to keep your lens/camera free of fungus as long as you keep them in a sealed box to make it as a cheap dry box, just add a hygrometer to monitor its humidity. Of course it can not regulate the humidity like a dedicated Digital dehumidify dry cabinet box.

Car air-con generally doesn't work below about 2-3 degrees (depending on car manufacturer) as they disable the compressor below that temperature. I thought it was to avoid damage in the winter, but maybe also to save fuel as the air is cold enough. That means you've no air drier yet coincidentally, that's when you're most likely to have condensation in your car and could do with the drier running...

These bags are pretty good, but I had better results with a much larger one I bought from Halfords that lasted over a year before it stopped making a difference. Only problem was, there was no way to re-charging it. I tried radiators, oven, microwave, but ended up throwing it out and buying these.

They're just alright, but at that price, hot!

​I must admit that I've never had a problem at whatever temperature is is with the 6+ cars I've had over the last 20 years with humidity even in the cold so not sure why it's been ok for me?

Maybe it's because I use the car a lot with doing around 30K a year?
