Commercial humidifiers are fine, but they can require too much maintenance, otherwise they can do more harm than good. That’s true. They can develop bacteria that’s spread into the air if they aren’t properly cleaned, and frequently so. What can you do? The winter is tough on skin and sinuses. Everything gets so dry because due to heating. The solution is simple: DIY humidifiers.
Make these at home easily. Find pretty bowls, wide-mouth jars or glasses and fill them with water. Position them strategically in each room, but never too close to electrical devices. They work great on radiators, as the heat causes the water to evaporate quicker. More moisture in the air means it’s less dry in your home.
Colored glass containers will blend into any room’s decor. If you don’t have any on hand, simply add some food coloring to the water to match your color scheme. Voila…it’s that easy.
