When it’s cold outside and you’re heating your apartment, adding moisture to the air can be tough. We’ve collected a few tips to make humidifying your apartment easier for you.
- One simple trick is to leave decorative bowls of water around the house. You’d be amazed just how much water evaporates in your home every day.
- Instead of using a dryer for your clothes, use a drying rack and let them dry naturally. Not only will you conserve energy, but you’ll also humidify and fill your home with the scent of fresh laundry.
- If you prefer baths over showers, consider leaving the bath water in the tub until it’s completely cooled. The warm water and large surface area will allow a lot of water to evaporate into the air. Just use caution if you have small children and don’t leave them unattended while standing water is present.
- Cooking on the stovetop instead of baking in the oven helps keep your home humidified. Oven baking tends to dry out the air even more, especially at high temperatures.
