That's what I thought . . you can't "Re-generate" Damp Rid . .

How DampRid Works
When the white pellets are exposed to the air, they absorb excess moisture and dissolve into a brine (salt solution). They won’t dry the air to a level that damages plants, animals or clothing. The formula is non-toxic, septic safe and friendly to the environment. It’s safe for home, family and pets and is easy to dispose of after use.
DampRid’s Moisture Absorbers absorb moisture in three phases.
Excess moisture is absorbed into the white calcium chloride crystals. The white crystals begin to harden and form a solid mass. They have not yet dissolved. You may see liquid dripping into the bottom chamber of the product at this stage.
Excess moisture will most likely be dripping into the bottom of the product. Approximately 1/2 to ¾’s of the white crystals will have dissolved.
All the white crystals will have dissolved and the bottom of the product will be full of moisture. You will still see a small line of yellow freshener beads in the top chamber of the Hanging Moisture Absorber.
Discard the DampRid product and replace with a new one. For refillable products empty the collected liquid into the sink (with running water) or toilet and refill.
