What this does for me is to regulate the relative humidity inside the
case. The salt is important in that is keeps anything from growing on the
(Use rock salt as table salt will not stay in the nylon very well). The
might taste a little salty, but I have never noticed. In my experience
regulating the humidity this way keeps the reeds from excessive warping. I
let the reeds dry table up when I work them to promote the warpage out the
the reeds prior to flattening the table and storage in the humidity
Tupperware thing.

Steve - wonder if that would/could affect your blood pressure?? (the salt,
if you can taste it - your body can feel it is my guess).
Rico makes a humidity bag which holds a constant humidity level. The
"Doctor" carries an anti-humidity canister product (non-toxic and similar to
those which are included in asprin containers) which also works very well to
control humidity.
