Product Information

Help protect everything from clothing to food staples against potentially dangerous mold and fungus with Mold-Away. Simply remove the pack from its pouch and place it in the closet, kitchen, bathroom, basement or garage. The all-natural ingredients (clay and lime) absorb excess moisture, keeping humidity below 30% in confined areas. Indicator dots turn pink to let you know when it's time to dispose of the pack (usually about three months, under normal use). Mold-Away activates at 5% humidity. Other products activate at 30% humidity, which is the point at which mold and mildew begin to grow. Mold-Away is designed to reduce humidity to between 10% and 30%.

  • The materials stay in solid form so there's no danger of leakage

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carefree I tuck one of these in plastic footlockers where I store clothes, shoes & handbags in basement in their off-season. While our dehumidifier does a good job for the area, these little packets give me peace of mind my clothes will be fresh when I take them out for the next season April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Mold Away!! Mold Away helps me keep dampness and mold out of my closets and drawers in my bureau. I am so so thankful that The Container Store is carrying Mold Away again!! July 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Use it in all our coolers for storage I stick a pack of this stuff in every cooler and it works awesome. The cooler is never moldy or smelly the next time we use it. I dry the coolers before we store it but it always smelled and occasionally would be moldy but problem solved with this stuff. I remove the pack and set it aside when we use the cooler, then put it right back in the cooler after it is emptied and clean. I have used mine for over a year, and they still seem to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Used in a safe Used this product in a rather large safe that we use for important documents. Safe started to smell a bit musty/moldy and research told me that it was normal but to get a desicant of some type. We got "Mold Away" and it worked great. It has easy to read indicators that tell you when it needs to be replaced. Love it. July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by DOes exactly what it says I was having trouble with a powder bathroom getting a little musty. I keep one of these in there now and it solved the problem. No leaks or mess, smell or anything else. Just less humidity in a very convenient package! March 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Mold preventer for fabrics and paper stored I put Mold Away packets in all my plastic bins that I store in my basement that have keepsakes, stuffed animals, clothes, and anything made out of paper or material that absorbs odor and they have prevented any mold or mildew from getting into them. If you are like me and saved your child's baby clothes or books or old college files and have to store them in an unfinished basement, just put a Mold Away packet in each bin and your precious items will last forever. The packets last longer than they say they do and they are non-toxic. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Like This Stuff I have been using this product for the past two years since moving from Michigan to South Carolina. I simply place the packet in the cabinet under my bathroom sink and over the next three months or so the three blue dots gradually change to pink. When it's completely 'pinked' I pick up the dry (on the outside) packet and dispose of it in the trash. Absolutely NO MESS. I am so pleased with this product. October 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by works great in our cookie cabinet to keep everything crispy during the humid months. June 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent product, yet, I have two comments. Used it in the food and spice draws, keeps the products dry! Great. However, the only problem is that I had to change the pack within a month. Also It would be good if the manufacturer would mention whether one can use this product near food? December 18, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yes It Does CS is one of the few stores that sell this and I don't know why. It is the best thing I have found for my humid NYC closets, cupboards and under the sink. It just sucks the water out of the air, and is very uninteresting to snoopy little cats & dogs. I tried everything to stop encroaching mold/mildew under my bathroom sink. This is the only thing that worked long-term. I can just set one of these in/among my towels and linens in that cupboard and there is no staining, odor--nothing but less humidity. I 1st found mold Away at Container Store and have been using it for the last 6 or 7 years. They should sell cases! April 16, 2010

Community Q&A

Could these be used periodically to prevent mold in appliances?

I have a new Bosch apartment size front loading washer. We keep the door open whenever it's not in use, but I'm wondering if we could place a sheet in the open machine for a few days every month to suck up any extra moisture as a maintenance measure.
Asked by: palevanilla
I think that should work fine, as long as you remember to remove before you run the appliance! Just toss it under the kitchen sink cabinet while its out of the machine and it can help down there in the meantime.

Do the blue indicator dots contain cobalt chloride?

If so, is there a way to use these without the blue dots making contact with clothing or skin? Perhaps inside a cotton pouch? Also, Is there an alternative to cobalt chloride because I'm also concerned about environmental effects after disposal.
Asked by: Sheluma
Yes they do contain cobalt chloride. No special requirements for disposing product or humidity indicating card in garbage Desiccare and other desiccant companies use the card and sell the card worldwide. No special discarding requirements are in-force.

How large of a space can each Mold-Away pack accurately "monitor"?

I recently purchased a home that has a cellar in the finished basement which is separated by one wooden door. It was visibly damp and musty when we moved in and there was some mold in a few spots as well. That mold is gone for now and the dampness is decently controlled with a dehumidifier. The space is approximately 8ft long x 20ft wide x 6ft tall, and I plan to fill the entire room with plastic shelving and watertight plastic storage bins. My question is two part: - Would one Mold-Away pack be enough to keep the humidity below 30% in the entire space? - And what is the total coverage area that affects the indicator dots?
Asked by: DampDungeon
For a naturally humid/damp area that's about 1,000 cubic square feet in volume, we would recommend three or four bags of Mold-Away to start. Depending on the results, you can adjust the number of Mold-Away packages used in the area and the frequency with which they are replaced..
