So my sister-in-law just reminded me that I need to document The issues were having with humidity….
So, a lot of people ask us about the weather here. We are super happy because it is so nice. The kids can play outside every day without being too hot or too cold. We even tell people that we love the fact that the humidity is nothing like what we experience in Memphis. One thing we did not think about was the humidity in the house😏😩 One day I was just looking through the closet to see if anything needed to be ironed and discovered thisEvery pair of Nathan’s dress pants was covered in mildew and most of my clothes were as well. Luckily, I was able to soak them in vinegar and baking soda and it came out.
I messaged a few friends here and they told me that this is normal for rainy season. Unfortunately, rainy season is most of the year here so it is something I’m going to have to learn how to deal with. I quickly got recommendations for how to handle it. . A trip to Walmart later I came back with a dehumidifier, dehumidifying bags and buckets for soaking up water. I am not being dramatic when I say these bags will fill up in a week.This dehumidifier holds 2 L of water and I have to change it out about every 3-4 days! This is something I really have to stay on top of. Our clothes still smell a little sour so I still need to figure that one out😩 so if anyone has any suggestions I’m happy to hear them!
