Giddy for humidity (Day 257)…

bathroom fan

Now that I’m taking Navy Showers in lukewarm water, there isn’t a lot of steam to contend with each morning in the bathroom — it still gets a bit humid, but it’s actually kind of nice, especially with the cooler, drier weather approaching, and Sophie absolutely loves it.

So when Thistle reader Megan dropped me an email suggesting I pledge not to use my bathroom fan anymore, and instead simply open the door to let the air circulate, I knew it would be an easy change, which is precisely what I’m looking for on a hectic Monday afternoon. Also, because I’m not using my humidifier, I think my pores will thank me.

    Totally NOT related to the humidity in your bathroom, but I just visited your Flickr account, and saw that you did, indeed, visit VooDoo Doughnuts in Portland. Didn’t I tell you they were crazy-good?!?! 🙂

    Ah but isn’t there another reason we use washroom fans….not JUST to avoid humidity?? Sophie may not not be THAT appreciative 😉

    emma, surely that has been covered in some kind of beeswax candles post?

    God, I hate that stupid humidifier thing! I never use it just because the noise drives me absolutely nuts.

    in response to emma – my bathroom doesn’t have a fan or a window, so i was kind of concerned with that as well when i first moved into this apartment. but it turns out, if you put the seat down and close the door, it mysteriously disappears within a short period of time. no idea what happens, but it’s gone, hahaha. plus, i hear odour has a bit to do with diet? this might be a little grimey for a blog, so i’ll stop here…

    Ew, Em, you’re sick! And yes, Kimberly is right — putting the seat down does wonders, as does lighting a match or waving some incense smoke around for a few seconds. I feel like the fan is pretty useless in that department anyway.

    if I open the door after a shower the smoke alarm goes off! Even with the fan on…great way to wake everyone else up in the morning 😛

  8. emma says:

    Thank you all….I shall put the seat down in pride! hehe

    Hi all, i used to do this myself. i hated the sound of the fan and also wanted to save power. However, my problem was in the summer, the humidity from the shower made the temp in the upstairs of my house go up so then the ac kicked in. so which uses more power, the fan or the ac??
