Coarse salt can have multiple uses. We usually use it for cooking, or to degrease perhaps along with vinegar, baking soda, etc.
In reality, few people know that it can also be useful as a room dehumidifier . Excess humidity is a problem that occurs in any home during winter and autumn, especially during particularly rainy seasons . Generally, when it is cold, everything is kept closed, windows, balconies, so the steam after showering and cooking is trapped in the house .
The inevitable consequence is the formation of moisture on the walls and therefore mold . Sometimes dampness is also caused by water draining to and from balconies, both in condominiums and single-family homes. Moisture forms easily, just as easily turns into mold and is then almost impossible to remove.
Humidity in the house, because mold forms.
The solution that comes to mind is the purchase of dehumidifiers , which cost a lot and do not always give the desired result, because the humidity persists. Some people buy dehumidifiers, fans, vacuum cleaners, anti-mold spray products, but the end result is almost always disappointing.
First of all, you have to pay attention to the small mistakes that are made every day. For example, when you turn on the stove , whether it is one or more, you should always turn on the hood, even when it is very noisy and annoying. If the weather permits, so that it does not rain and it is not cold, it is necessary to keep the windows open, even better if you have large windows, which allow much more air to pass through. The recirculation in this case is greater and the humidity is better contrasted.
When you shower, you turn on the fans, or even in this case, you open the windows. Finally, it is best not to hang very wet clothes at home, because it is true that with the heat that is artificially created in winter they dry faster than outside, but it is also true that the water that evaporates is absorbed by the walls. and then it turns into mold. Those who have plants on the balcony make one more mistake, that is, they pour too much water into the saucers, which then comes out and stagnates .
In this way the internal environment becomes unhealthy and therefore unsuitable for children. A damp and moldy house also smells bad and living there becomes problematic. We must act and resolve the problem quickly and in any way.
