tip: if your brown sugar is rock hard (that's what she said), then put a few slices of fruit (e.g. apple, orange) in the container, leave for a few hours, and then the sugar will turn soft.

A slice of bread works very well as well. Just swap out for a new piece each day.

Yes, but your friend would have to keep an eye on it as it will not just maintain any set humidity. If your friend soaks this in water then adds it to their herbs, it will continue to release moisture and could make it too humid or invite mold growth.

If your friend puts this in with herb that they want to dry out, it will keep drying until it might be too dry.

So your friend can't just toss this in with their herbs and forget it, but they can put it in either dry or soaked depending on whether they want to decrease/increase the humidity. Just make sure that your friend checks it fairly often and removes it when it's reached their desired level.

Bulk barn has similar items, been a while since I bought it but I think it was like $5. Soak the clay and then put it in the container of brown sugar. Good for months.

No if we are speaking of a recently legalized one. You want 2 way boveda packs. Wet salt, essentially. 62% if you smoke, touch less if you vape, 55-58 works.

Answering from a friend.
Yeah. Probably not worth the hassle. just grab a pack of the %62 Boveda then put it in the jar and forget it. The Boveda packs are like $1-2 from most cannabis stores i've seen (depending on the size).
