Swamp cooler pads for the garden?
I just changed my swamp cooler pads, which were the "natural" kind. My friend told me that I needed to scrape off the calcium. Then I began to think, (I know, that can be dangerous)If this pad is made of natural fibers with calcium and other minerals on it, could it go into the garden cut up as mulch? Has anyone done this, or know something about these pads that would make it a bad idea? I would be grateful for help on this one.
