Drying Object

Drying objects made of diatomaceous earth are put into small containers or bags and used as desiccants.

Place it in a seasoning container such as salt to prevent it from hardening. Although using the block over time may change its color, the quality is not affected. You may wash it with water after use and dry it under the sun.


Notes on Usage:

  • You may notice a bit of powder on the surface however, this is not a problem with the quality.
  • Due to the nature of the material, the powder is expected.
  • As it is food hygiene tested, there is no harm to health even if small particles are consumed.
  • There is a limit to the moisture absorption when used over time. Simply place it outside or under the sun to restore its effect.
  • Using it in a humid salt container may result in certain salt getting stuck to the block. Just remove the block, wash or remove the salt and you can reuse it after drying it under the sun.
  • Due to certain natural minerals in the salt, the color of the block may change, however, the function is not affected.
  • Please do not keep the block in water for a long time as it will lead to degradation of the material.
  • When not in use, please store in a dry place.
  • Avoid from reach of children, especially infants.


Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth is taken from sedimentary layers formed of phytoplankton that resided in the sea and lakes hundreds of thousands of years ago. Because it is porous with an infinite number of fine porosities on the micrometer (10-6m) scale, it has high water and moisture retention properties, as well as deodorant and moisture control properties. A further characteristic is that it has different colors depending on the area.

Sakan Plastering

Sakan plastering is a technique to plaster soil or cement on the walls and floors using a trowel. The word “sakan” (plasterer) derives from a title which was conferred to Hatao Koze by the Japanese Emperor for the construction of earthen walls around the Imperial Palace in 645. From the middle of the 16th century to the 19th century, sakan plastering technique developed through various plasterworks such as outer baileys of castles, earthen walls for teahouses and interior walls, and the traditional technique was handed down through generations. Recently plastering has been attracting attention as a method to create an ecologically sound space free from the artificiality of modern building techniques.
