Clearly, you've never been presented with a load of 8" Radio 
Shack-branded floppies...

"Wright Line" and "Wabash" branded floppies seem to share the 
undesirable characteristic.

FWIW, I don't think that "sticky shed" has much to do with humidity, at 
least according to the audio tape folks.  "Sticky bleed" problems are 
much nastier.   I think that the selection of a food dehydrator was 
merely a convenient source of a ready-made temperature-controlled solution.

The "Tapeheads" forum is a good source of information on this.
