How do I get rid of the dampness in our fire proof safe that holds our important documents? They are damp and it smells Horrible!!
Put a glass with rice, or better even, salt in there. After some days, replace it with new salt (or dry the old by heating in a pan). Repeat until it gets better - and find out where the moist is coming from.
Put a bowl of rice in there.
Take the papers out and put rice in it rice will take the moisture out of it
Or put blocks of limestone in it
Paper towels will work, but not as good as rice. Leave the door open for a bit.
