Plants are our friends in more ways than you might realize. They need water to live and as you water them to grow, they will give back to you in the form of humidity back into their rooms.
Crank the heat down is another sure fire way you can decrease the humidity in the house. The hotter the room gets, the drier it gets also. Especially at night when you are under blankets, turning the heat down can make a little bit of difference in the least.
Wet Clothes can be hung up to dry as another helpful home remedy for increased humidity. If you have the space, one load of wet laundry can often provide ample moisture for a room. To help with a good night’s sleep, hang up your laundry or sling over a drying rack in the late afternoon or early evening. You’ll breathe easier at night.
Spraying or misting water into a room can also help. Using a spray bottle with a setting for misting is probably better than a free-for-all water spraying event in your living room or bedroom. A gentle misting over curtains, furniture, carpet, and in the air can only help.
Bathroom fans. We know our parents always tell us to turn the bathroom fan on when you take a shower. They are right. For a once in a while humidity boost, leave the fan off and take a steamy shower, or just let it run. Don’t overdo this. Everything in moderation! Keep the bathroom door open and let the steam do its magic for you. Adding a floor fan to help distribute the steam can help the cause even more.
Cooking pasta or soups can let off steam. The meal will add warmth to your body and the preparation will add steam and humidity to your home. Leave doors open so steam will have the ability to travel through the air.
