DampRid. You can get it at Wal-Mart.

Totally passive, no open windows/vents, no power required: Dri-Z-Air

I've used the "Classic" successfully for 12 years.

Others have solutions that work for them.

Dri Z Air has worked for us for decades but we have since found the active ingredient in it and have bought it since in bulk at a huge savings....

I go through 3-4 packs a year of Dri-Z-Air crystals and get the packs on sale for 99 cents each. Spending less than 5 bucks a year, to me, is not worth storing it in bulk. YMMV

From the website DRI-Z-AIR® DEHUMIDIFIER - MOISTURE ABSORBER - MADE IN THE USA - FAQ's
"Dri-Z-Air is calcium chloride, which is a salt product."
(hint ice melter)

I bought the crystals bulk in a one gallon container ( milk jug ). No problem storing it and a heck of a lot cheaper than little bags that say Dri Z Air on them. One jug lasted two years.

Damp Rid is none other than Calcium Chloride available at any pool store or box store in the pool department. Very cheap in bigger container than Damp Rid
