Drying Out a Sweating Salt Lamp

My son bought a salt lamp recently and we were surprised that it was soaking wet. After doing some research online I discovered that salt lamps will sweat if they have been in a humid environment. It is not uncommon to open the bag and find a sweaty lamp.

Supplies:

  • cookie sheet
  • screw driver
  • oven

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees F, or as low as your oven will go.
  2. Remove any wooden or plastic base from the piece of salt.
  3. Place the salt onto a cookie sheet and put it in the oven. Set a timer and check it every 10 minutes, rotating it, until it is dry to the touch. Turn off the oven and allow the salt to cool completely.
  4. Reassemble the lamp and enjoy its soothing ambiance!

Tip: I recommend placing your lamp on a small plate in case it begins sweating again. If it does, consider moving it to a less humid location. It can also help to keep the light on as often as possible, to keep it dry.
