    Can you use a dehumidifier? It's the best way I know to take away dampness from a room!

    You could purchase a dehumidifier to remove any excess moisture. They can be set at whatever setting you require. There is a water tray which will need to be emptied. You will find the machine will run continually until you get the humidity down to at least 50-60. They are automatic and kick in whenever the humidity rises above your setting. You can use the water for your plants.

      Since it is an enclosed porch and you have moisture issues, you run the risk of mold growing due to the moisture.

      Someone told me to use charcoal and that would help.

      Well, it sure did. It drew out moistire and prevented mold growth.
