    The key is to determine how the moisture got there and mitigate the source. There is nothing, like putting out a tray of borax or washing soda, that will cure the symptom if you do not address the problem.

    A home dehumidifier will take the damp out. Closest thing I've found to a home treatment. I use two during the summer. If there was a cheaper way that worked we would all be using it.

    I agree with Ken.

    I would first locate the source of the damp...have you got a small leak in the wall or ceiling? Has the vapour barrier failed in a spot which is allowing condensation to form? Once located and repaired, air circulation should be maintained and/or a dehumidifier should keep it dry

    Humidifiers would really help. We did that in our basement and it really helped in the summer, it also helped to open windows for air circulation. We have five large aquariums between the main floor and the basement and in the summer gets real humid without the dehumidifiers and open windows when it isn't too humid outside. In the winter they help to not keep the house too dry with the furnace on all the time.
