It’s a common problem in winter – condensation on windows.
And while people often use a dehumidifier to fix the problem, Mrs Hinch fans have come up with a MUCH easier and cheaper way to prevent the problem from happening.
Joining the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips group on Facebook, Sophie Randell asked for help with condensation issues after moving into a rental property.
“Nothing failed, every day the windows are steaming like this,” she wrote.
“I tried the small pots (dehumidifier) as shown in the picture to help but it made no difference.
“Any advice on how to prevent this would be very interesting! It even leaks water onto the window gasket for some days due to how much water condenses there.”
Hygiene fans quickly ran to the post to offer their advice, with the most popular suggestion being to use salt.
“Put salt in a bowl on the windowsill. It will absorb the moisture,” someone wrote.
“Leave a small basin or two of salt on your windowsill,” said another. “It’s moisture-wicking. Just put a new pot/bowl out every night.”
“I would recommend that too,” a third agreed.
While some suggested using a window vacuum cleaner, others commented: “No one has the money for that, especially around Christmas.
“Here’s a cheaper way, get a large plastic tub and make your own dehumidifier by putting cat sand or salt or even sugar in it – anything that can absorb moisture.
“Also for cleaning water on windows, microfiber cloths are great for them to absorb a lot of water.”
And since a large jar of table salt starts at as little as 29p, the hack is a budget-friendly workaround.
