Chalk Dehumidifier

Around this time of year we start having a few moisture problems in our house as the humidity outside increases.  I've looked at conventional closet dehumidifiers, but they're a little pricey & are made up of loads of chemicals.

Now I love me some Martha Stewart, and I always enjoy looking at her website, so when I saw her idea of a chalk dehumidifier I had to run with it. 


chalk (left over from teaching)
a ribbon (saved from a gift)
scissors (the same pair I've had since 3rd grade)
rubber band (thanks post office!)

Martha suggests using a dozen sticks, but half of mine were broken, so I just settled for six.  Wrap the rubber band around the chalk, cover with a ribbon, and hang!

Easy peasy, especially if you don't try to make yours look like Martha's!   No more moisture in our closets for nothing & no weird chemicals!  Woot Woot!!  


  1. The sounds arrives generally from the lover and a compressor simply gives a smidge more sound to the mathematical statement. A desiccant unit has two supporters 1 to exchange the air the other to blow heat air more than the rotor to dry it. So the Delonghi Dnc65 Dehumidifier is a ton all the more exactly demonstrated as a "quieter dehumidifier" or a "sensibly calm dehumidifier". Dehumidifier reviews
