Yeah. Every grocer has uncooked, canned rice on the shelf.

White rice is disposable, when it starts to get clumped together that means its doing its job, and then toss it and get a new one

You can take a sock and fill it with Kitty litter, every month or so put it in the oven and bake it at 350 for a half hour to dry it back out and put it back in the safe. Works well as a dessicant and its cheap to boot. If you want to spend some money on it you can get a silica gel dessicant bag for the safe and do the same thing by baking it in the oven periodically. If you want to get fancy you can get one of those moisture strips to monitor the moisture inside the safe.
