Last Updated on January 10, 2021

Even though air humidifiers aren’t the most expensive thing on earth, they can still be a waste of money. This might confuse you and make you even think: what even is a humidifier? Well, let me explain.
A humidifier is something that helps fighting dry air by adding moisture to the air. This has health benefits since this specific device makes you breathe fresh air instead of dry air.

Why is dry air bad? Well, maybe you won’t feel the difference depending on where you live but people who live in arid or semiarid countries know exactly what this is. People who suffer from allergies or people who take advantage of their central heating device might know too.

Do you know that feeling when it’s so cold that you have a heater working for hours in your room? And when you suddenly leave your room don’t you feel the difference? That’s because your room is full of dry air (especially if you have your door closed) and outside your room, there’s normal breathable moisturized air.


And guess what? You should never be breathing dry air for this long. Dry air can cause dry skin, allergies like sinus conditions and it also contributes to staticky hair.
You might think these consequences aren’t dangerous but breathing dry air can also cause nausea, headaches and overall make you feel sick.

So, if you’re wondering how to moisturize the air that you’re breathing, keep reading and find out some DIY ways to humidify your house.

Why It’s Beneficial To Moisturize The Air In Your Space?

If you suffer from allergies, having fresh moisturized air at your house might improve your allergy reactions, it’s been proved that humidity in the air contributes to the relief from sinus conditions and skin conditions related to allergies like eczemas and extremely dry skin. It also gives you healthy hair, fewer nosebleeds and might help your dad stop snoring.

But what can it do to your house? Well, your house plants will definitely thank you and you’ll notice that your furniture will last longer if you keep your air moisturized.

1. Give Your Heater A Break


First of all, you should never heat your home for more time than necessary. And if you’re in a small closed space, always leave your door open so there’s air circulation. You might actually pass out if you don’t do this! If it’s very cold use the heater for a couple of minutes so it warms up your room, then, turn it off and go dress something warmer and get some extra blankets for your bed.

2. Start Hanging Your Clothes To Dry Inside Your House


I know we all hang out our clothes outside cause that makes more sense. And you should definitely go for it. Especially during the winter when it’s cold and clothes take more time to dry. But during the summer, for example, you can try to leave some common house clothes like socks, small towels, even panties hanging on your kitchen chair or on your wardrobe door to dry. By doing this, your washed clothes will add some moisture to the air since the water on the clothes will evaporate over time and not only that, your house will be smelling great!. Think about the energy you’ll be saving (and money). No need to use the dryer or buy house fragrances anymore!

3. Get Some House Plants


Do plants add moisture to the air? The answer is: of course they do! Plants possess moisture and through transpiration, this moisture evaporates from your plant, this helps air moisture since it’s increasing the humidity in your house! So think about it, the more plants you own the better. You don’t need to go to crazy, try to have one in each division, and a couple of them in larger places such as the living room. That’s all you need!

4. Start Using Your Bowls As Decoration But With Water Inside

If your seriously allergic to plants, do not worry, you can simply use bowls with water to do the exact same thing. Plants are a better decision since they have a lot more benefits and serve as house decorations. Having bowls with water laying around your house might sound a little weird but the thing is, by doing so you’ll be adding more moisture to the air. It’s all about the evaporation process! The best place to leave them is near a window with a lot of direct sunlight since the evaporation is quicker and more effective that way.

5. Oven versus Stovetop


Cooking in your oven might dry out the air in your house even more. By using a stove steamer to cook your meals, you’ll be moisturizing the air and because of the boiling water, it might even warm your kitchen during those cold winter days.

6. Forget The Quick Shower, Take A Bath
