    OK so I'm after a bit of help. My apartment sucks, and is pretty humid. We've got a dehumidifier so that helps a bit, but I'm worried about my TFs and how they're coping with it (I'm a MISBer, wouldn't you know!)

    I've checked them over and they appear to be fine for now, but I was wondering what the best way to damage-limit would be. Would silica gel help, or would that cause more damage than help?

    Any pointers would be really helpful.

    Cheers!

    Cool the room down for one. Cold air holds less humidity then warm air. Thats why it often feels more humid in the summer. Try to keep the room around 70-75. A moderate temperature like that is better for them anyways.

    Use a dehumidifier as you already mentioned. Other then that not alot you can do really.

    If you have a few fans keep them running in the room you keep your TF's in. One other thing that really drys the air out in a small house or an apt, is a hepa filter. They clean the air of dust and pollen, but at the same time even though they are not really meant to they do dry the air a bit.
