The Case of Calcium Chloride Desiccant for Women Clothing

Oct 18,2022 | Bond

In June 2015, we received an inquiry from the USA.

hi, if there a desiccant to aviod mold and mildew in clothes?I import clothes from China, but after shipping, some clothes in very bad condition because of moisture.

Our product experts have a wealth of experience in providing clothes moisture-absorbent.

Why do the clothes get mold during shipping from China, Vietnam, or Indian factory?

The main reason is usually a combination of the following factors:

  • The products themselves are too wet when packed. (Some garment manufacturing processes will include washing, but they may not be thoroughly dried)
  • The products are packed with wet packing materials. 
  • There is a lot of moisture in the storage area(like the warehouse).
  • There is a lot of water in the shipping container (during long transportation, mold develops).

So at first, we get the picture of how customers' goods are packed, and then we will judge what desiccant is used and how much is used.

As the picture shows, several pieces of clothes are packed in plastic bags, which will be stacked in the box. In the case of confirming that the clothes and packaging materials are dry, we think that the plastic bag is a relatively more sealed space, so it is a perfect choice to put some desiccant to avoid moisture.

After communication, we know it takes about two months for this customer's clothes to go from China manufacturing to the US warehouse. The ordinary 2g silica gel desiccant will reach saturation in about a week and no longer absorb moisture(if the significant pack weight increase, the customer shipping fee will increase, not economic), so we recommended the calcium chloride desiccant with 300% efficiency than silica gel for him, which is 2g, 55*90mm, two-layer package, never leak.
