Increasing humidity

From: Shelley Howe <artchic68>

I am trying to raise the humidity levels in my temporary exhibit
space for an upcoming exhibit that will include a bunch of leather
cowboy boots with decorative stitching etc. It has been suggested
that I use Silica Gel in enclosed cases. Is there some sort of
protocol for me to follow? I thought that was only used to decrease
the humidity levels. The loaners are requesting a 50% humidity level
with 70-72 degrees F. Currently, our humidity levels are at 20% and
the temp is around 70 degrees. Any suggestions?
