Can you use sodium chloride to dehumidify a room?

Update:

I placed some socks filled with salt and uncooked rice and a container below so that it drips. Will it work?

    no. they will absorb some moisture, a small amount, but once that point is reached, no more. They will never drip.

      talk to a librarian. Meanwhile, place the books on edge and spread out the pages as much as you can. Put in a dry area.

    Totally ineffective. You need dry heat, or a dehumidifier.
