2. Keep the house ventilated
Ventilate your home by opening windows and letting fresh air circulate inside.
Cross ventilation is one of the best ways to extract moist air from indoors and prevent the buildup of condensation that causes humidity.
3. Reduce moisture
The easiest way to control and reduce humidity is to cover the pot while cooking to prevent steam buildup, dry wet clothes outdoors and wipe down the bathroom after showering.
