A homemade humidifier can ease health problems that are caused by dry air. By releasing water vapor or steam into the air the moisture level in the air is increased. The increased moisture will help prevent dry, chapped lips, nose bleeds, sinus problems, dry skin, and dry, brittle hair.
A DIY humidifier for a room also improves the health of houseplants and helps reduce the cost of heating the home. Moist air is warmer than dry air and will retain the indoor heat better.
Improve the air quality in your home with one of these 13 home humidifiers that are easy and inexpensive to build.
