The conventional method to protect microscope lenses from fungus was by reducing humidity of the storage rooms using wolfram lamp, silica gel, or using air conditioner. Given the conventional methods are relatively expensive, it is necessary to look for alternative materials and techniques that are easier, inexpensive, and effective.This study aims to determine the effectiveness of the use of quicklime (CaO) to minimize humidity of microscope storage cabinet chambers. Four treatment namely K, P1, P2, and P3 with 5 replicates is the experimental design used in this study.K is the storage cabinet chambers with no CaO as the controls.P1 is a test chamber treated with one cup contained 70g CaO; P is a testchamber treated with two cups contained 70g CaO each; P is a test chamber treated with three cups contained 70g CaO each. The air humidity in the cabinet chamber was measured by Hair Hygrometers of analog type. Relative humidity is recorded once a week for four weeks. As a result, by the end of the third week the average humidity of chambers treated with by CaO significantly different from the control chambers, but there was no difference between P1, P2,P3, and P4. At the end ofthe fourth week the humidity in P1, P2, and P3 are not significantly different from the control chambers. It can be concluded that quicklime can be effectively used to reduce the air humidity of microscope storage chambers for 3 weeks.
