AN influencer has revealed a simple trick to keep your home free of damp and mould.
A common household item is used to capture the moisture, with virtually no effort required to set up the trap.
Influencer Olivia (@innovativeliv) shared the tip on her TikTok, where it received 90,000 views.
The clip began with a voiceover asking viewers if they had mold in their homes.
Mold and moisture are common in your home, especially in the colder months of the year.
If you’re struggling with this, this trick might help.
Influencer Olivia recommended using salt to control the problem.
She had mold and condensation on her windows and this trick helped her.
She poured sea salt into an open plastic container.
The voiceover said: “Place an open container of salt wherever it is needed and it will trap and absorb the moisture.”
Olivia placed the plastic tub filled with fine-grained sea salt on her windowsill.
Hidden between the blinds, it offered an unobtrusive solution to the problem of damp windows.
Salt is widely available in grocery stores and is available cheaply for just 70 cents.
This solution required almost no effort to set up and it continued to function without requiring any maintenance or attention.
Once the salt has absorbed as much moisture as it can hold, the contents of the container can easily be replaced.
You can use the hack anywhere in your home that is humid.
Spots could include the bathroom, where it could help with a lack of ventilation.
The kitchen is also a room that could use protection from excessive moisture, as cooking creates condensation on the walls and windows.
