MOLD TEST KIT
Here is an example of a moisture absorbing product. This one is called "DampRid". It actually absorbs the moisture present in an enclosed space like a closet. Moisture becomes trapped in the bag and disposed of instead of becoming MOLD. This product is readily available at many stores.
The new unused product is on the left. On the right is the same product after three months in a closet. Notice the bag actually filled up with water which could have caused the formation and growth of mold.
Below is another view of the used water filled bag on the right.
