5 natural ways you can reduce humidity levels in your home

Increased humidity in your home can lead to stuffy air and other issues. Here are five natural ways to reduce humidity levels in your home.

Open your windows

Proper ventilation is essential to maintaining humidity levels in the house. Open your windows and exhaust fans for a while to allow the humid air to escape.

Turn on air conditioning

If you have an air conditioner, turn it on regularly to help remove some moisture from the air.

Take colder showers

Hot showers can increase humidity in the air. Opt for cold showers to lessen the steam in the air. 

Move your plants

Plants can retain moisture, contributing to your home's humidity levels. Relocating your plants from time to time helps reduce humidity. 

Keep surfaces dry

Keep your kitchen and bathroom surfaces dry to prevent water from evaporating into the air, which can increase humidity.
