Here in the Pacific Northwest, you encounter a lot of driftwood along the beaches. I always seem to come home with a bunch of little (sometimes huge) pieces. I wanted to use some of them in a terrarium that I started, but first I needed to remove any pests that may have hitched a ride and remove all of the built up salt so that I didn't kill my plants.
A Fun Name. :-)
Anyway, thank you very much for your detailed advice on destilling driftwood. I do a lot of my Artwork using wood, Cottonwood Roots, which are almost like driftwood. I never thought of baking them. What a great idea.
Matter-a-fact, I am trying to air our my Cottonwood Roots that were in the basement since we moved into our apartment and they really smelled like basement dense air. So, I had them out in the garden to get rained on and now trying to get them dried. Some are in our bathroom in lemon juice mixed water.
Now, since you mentioned about putting them in the oven to dry them out, that will be my next step.
Thank you so much.
