To all,

  At boating stores you can buy a few different products that work quite
well. They have hanging (small) boxes that you dispose of when they are
exhausted and my favorite is a small plastic container that you fill
with pellets that you can refill from milk carton size refill boxes of
pellets. The following link will show you three examples under $10. We
kept our lockers dry and free of mold free with these, the boat always
smelled clean. I would think on a smaller scale these would work fine.
