After my divorce and lack of space to display them, my majority of the collection is sitting in boxes the sizes like 22x22x22 in a garage built in the late 70’s. I have close to 42 boxes, I noticed that the boxes that sit at the bottom are always ice cold and musty.

As of last year I started buying silica gels and throwing them in boxes because I my 1/18 diecast models started having zync rot and paint bubbling up so I started panicking, but one thing I noticed was that the boxes started to have that old
School mildew smell, is there a way to get rid of it and prevent it once and for all?
