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.

- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees F, or as low as your oven will go.
- Remove any wooden or plastic base from the piece of salt.
- 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.
- 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.
