yes, this might be one of those threads where you post and then think 'erm, perhaps a dehumidifier' and then that's sort of it, really......
damp is so blinking annoying - have throw away three bags of flour, two of sugar, some apricots and some salt. and I've gone out and bought all the tupperware Ikea can offer, and am about to become super organised housewife and put everything into tubs.
this has never happened to me before. I might join Fly lady.
our whole house is like this so you have my sympathy.everything is covered in moulddc books,my shoes,funiture,a brand new pillow on the floor for a sleepover was mouldy after a week!,a buggy,etc etc etc
We have a few dampish corners....found these brilliant things in the hardware shop that take away the moisture. Not sure what they are called but they are kind of plastic boxes with lids, you put these chrystal things on the top tray and the moisture turns the chrystals to water (or something like that!) anyway after a month or so i go round and empty out all the water and fill up with chrystals again, they are really good. I used to get a horrid black mouldy patch in my outdoor porch but now i use these i don't get it at all
We have lots of damp bits (so to speak) in our house too. If it's just a small space, I find this seems to work well - same sort of thing as blossomsmine describes, except to recharge it, you just put it in the microwave for 8 mins on full power to drive off the moisture.
