Rock Salt
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:

  1. Gather two plastic tubs of the same size
  2. Place something inside the bottom tub to hold the first tub off the bottom
  3. Poke holes in the bottom of the top tub
  4. Fill it with rock salt and place inside the first one
  5. Check the bottom tub daily and empty water as necessary
  6. Keep in mind it might take a few days for the tub to fill

Charcoal
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.
