5 tips to naturally humidify the air in your home
So that the air in a room is not too dry, it must have a humidity level optimal which is between 50 and 60% (verifiable with a station which makes both a thermometer and a hygrometer). Unfortunately, when you heat a room in winter and the radiators turn on, this rate drops considerably, and often drops below the 25% mark.
Fortunately, there are ways to increase the humidity level in your home in a 100% natural way (without using a radiator humidifier), such as:
- Buy some depolluting indoor plants. Indeed, once watered, their leaves will emit water vapor. Certainly, in small quantities, but the latter will still humidify the ambient air!
- Ventilate your interior three times a day, in order to reduce indoor pollution and eliminate dust particles present in your home. In winter, to avoid cooling the rooms too much, air no more than 5 minutes.
- Once your shower is finished, do not hesitate to open the door of your bathroom so that the humid air spreads throughout your accommodation.
- To replace a radiator humidifier, place damp cloths in the room: wet them, wring them out, then hang them next to your radiators.
- Iron in your living room! This creates fogging on the windows and therefore natural condensation!
Finally, make sure that the indoor temperature does not exceed 21 ° C.
4 ideas to humidify the air by evaporation
For improve your air quality interior and it is less dry, you can also opt forhumidification of air by evaporation. To do this, several techniques are possible, including:
- Install a large container of water in the room (under a piece of furniture so as not to attract attention) so that the latter evaporates under the effect of ambient heat. Remember to change the water regularly and clean the bowl: stagnant water can create a proliferation of microorganisms, which is not really the expected effect ...
- Place a bowl of hot water on a piece of furniture to humidify the ambient air naturally. This tip is effective because it is faster than with the container of cold water; however, once the water is no longer hot, it will evaporate much slower!
- Use a saturator: it is a small ceramic (or stainless steel) tank that clings to the radiator and into which you will pour water so that it evaporates. You can add a few drops of essential oils (lavender, thyme ...) to embalm your room.
- Heat a pressure cooker with water and release the steam into the room to be humidified. A somewhat radical technique, but it works!
Finally, last tip: remember to unplug your electrical devices that produce heat, even when they are on standby!
Be careful not to overdo it humidify the air in your room, because it promotes the appearance of mites and mold. And for optimal accuracy, do not hesitate to buy a hygrometer.
