Not much. Again, at temperatures over 80F and humidity over 50%, it doesn't take long for fungus to begin to attack the glass. If you catch it early, you may be able to have it cleaned fairly successfully. But once it etches the glass, there's nothing you can do. I lost some nice lenses to fungus before I got my dehumidifier.
