How can I humidify my bedroom if I dont have a humidifier/vaporizer?
Our bedroom is way to dry, and we dont have any type of humidifier. Also out heat is ceiling, so we cant place trays of water on the heater. Would it help if I put a bowl of water in front of a fan?? Any sugesstions are much appreciated!! Thx

Evaporation takes place according to the surface area. If you place water in a flat tray instead of bowl under the fan, more evaporation will take place and the room temperature will be lowered. But if you are asthmatic, it will have bad impact on your health.

Two additional ways to raise the humidity in a room are houseplants and aquariums. Get a largish philodendron and put a pebble tray underneath it. Water the plant and allow the pebble tray to fill with water. That water will evaporate and humidify your room.
An aquarium will also evaporate water, and provide entertainment with the fish. You can even combine fish and plants; get a male betta and put it in a clear glass Ginger-jar with a small peace lily plant floating on top. These were quite the fad several years ago. The instructions and glass vases are still available at WalMart and Michael's, and betta fish are very inexpensive. With a little care, the system can last for several years.

You can keep a pot of water simmering on the stove.
Also, simply placing water around your room, or wet towels draped over something nearby as you sleep will add moisture.
You can also buy saline nasal mist, such as Ayre, to help moisturize your nasal passages.

You can try letting the water from the batroom run, but that will be expensive. I would not place water infront of a fan because that can be dangerous. And that would not do anything humidify the room. You problably need to buy a humidifier. I do not think they are too expensive at wal-mart.

Heat the water if possible before putting it in front of a fan... hot water will evaporate into the air faster.

Best Wishes,


grandma always put a pot of water near the heater vent. If that won't work for you, you could put a pot of water on a hot plate, plug in an electric kettle full of water, etc. Beware of fire hazards - keep the electrical stuff away from flammables and don't make it so hot you boil out the water before you can check on it again.

<>The object of a humidifier is to put water into the air. They accomplish this with a water tank, a wicked filter and a fan, so yes, your idea of using a fan will work. I suggest a bowl of water with a piece of cloth hanging over the side into the water to work as a wick, placed in front of a low speed fan. Wash the cloth out, or replace it, often so it does not put bacteria into the air
