DIY Ways to Lower Humidity In Your Home
In the thick of summer, it’s only natural for your home to produce more moisture – making your home feel sticky and humid. Humidity is one of those summer pains we’d all like to avoid. If you’re looking for a natural DIY project to lower humidity in your home, here are two methods to try:
Rock salt is well known for being a resourceful drying agent. One way you can use rock salt to lower humidity in your home is:
- Gather two plastic tubs of the same size
- Place something inside the bottom tub to hold the first tub off the bottom
- Poke holes in the bottom of the top tub
- Fill it with rock salt and place inside the first one
- Check the bottom tub daily and empty water as necessary
- Keep in mind it might take a few days for the tub to fill
Many people claim hat charcoal briquettes can help to remove indoor humidity. Not only does it dehumidify, but it also removes foul odors. A bag of charcoal is inexpensive and can fit into a basket. Place on the top shelf in the closest area. They will last for several months, absorbing humidity and odor. After that, they can be used for grilling or for a toasty fire pit.
If these methods fail, your best option is to purchase a dehumidifier and air purifier. At Leslie Heating & Cooling, your comfort is our top priority – especially during the hot summer months.
