How To Absorb Moisture
Remove dampness by filling a small bowl with baking soda and placing it in the room you’d like to dehumidify. Although it’s not as effective as rock salt in combating humidity, it’s good for enclosed spaces where moisture is an issue.

Which air is saturated?

Does humidity mean water?
Humidity is a measure of the amount of water vapor in the air. Relative humidity measures the amount of water in the air in relation to the maximum amount of water vapor (moisture). The higher the temperature, the more water vapor the air can hold. Relative humidity is what your morning weather reporter would refer to.
