A Simple, Inexpensive Way To Absorb Moisture From Any Room
This is so genius and simple, it’s the easiest way to absorb moisture in a bathroom, closet or any other room of an old brick house in the super humid Mid-Atlantic region of the US. I can’t believe I wasted so much money on those weird moisture absorbing tubs from the hardware store. Those things get really gross when they fill up. I don’t know what they are made with but I didn’t want my kids eating it. And there wasn’t a good place to put them where they weren’t visible or accessible to the kids. They are not cute. Wait, my kids are cute.. the weird tubs are not.
My alternative can be cute or easily hidden and it’s super easy to manage.
What You’ll Need:
Put the chalk in the little bag and hang it in the damp area. Take the whole thing outside every 2-4 weeks to allow the chalk to dry out, then hang it back up. See? SIMPLE! You’ll want to use ribbon if you make it out of nylon. You can also skip the fabric or bag altogether by tying the 6 sticks together with ribbon. Just be sure to leave it long enough for hanging.
Here I have ours hanging from the mantle in our bathroom.
I just used a few broken pieces from my box of chalk.
And Here With The Cute Ribbon
My kids broke all the chalk while I was writing this post, that’s why you just see whole pieces in the first pic, and little stubs in the other two… But hey, they still work!
