Check your Indoor Humidity

Temperatures will dip below zero tonight, making it uncomfortable (and downright dangerous) to be outside. But if you don’t have the right amount of humidity inside, you could be uncomfortable too!

There’s a very easy way to check your indoor humidity too. Just put a few ice cubes in a glass of water, stir, and wait a few minutes. If you have the right amount of humidity in the air, you’ll see a few droplets of condensation on the outside of the glass.

If you don’t have the right level of humidity, put water in a humifier. You’ll notice a different result in our trick after a few hours. And you’ll feel much better! One night running a humidifier will also improve that cracked, dry skin this time of year. Having a few healthy houseplants in each room can do the same thing, but be sure to water them more frequently this time of year! -Eric
