There is one thing that I hate about the Summer and that’s humidity. Coming upstairs to put the children to bed and walking in to a stifling room even though a fan has been running with open windows for hours prior to bedtime. For the past 3 years I have tried to get their bedroom to a comfortable temperature for them but even then the humidity just makes it horrible. When I was asked to review the Unibond Humidity Absorber I wanted to jump at the chance knowing how handy it would be in the summer but considered it to be totally the wrong time of year.
How wrong I was. After reading up a little bit I found that every day activities such as cooking and taking a shower can produce up to 12 litres of unwanted moisture or humidity each day. This excess moisture then condenses in areas with poor circulation. We had noticed recently that the Boys window was covered in condensation every morning and the window sill was often covered in little puddles. We decided to give it a whirl because if it works now surely it will be amazing in the Summer.
When I opened the box I was surprised that there was no instruction manual. I had a look on the box and found out that it was so simple that it doesn’t need instructions. I simply had to open the Powertab, being careful not to touch it with my skin, and insert it into the top of the Humidity Absorber unit. Voila! The best bit is if for some unknown reason the Boys get their hands on it there are security clips on the side to prevent them getting to the Powertab and it has an anti spill system to protect them from the liquid.
I placed the unit high up on a shelf in the boys room and then waited. The Powertab contains active layers that absorb excess humidity and neutralises bad odours. The excess humidity is converted to a salty solution which is collected in the tank underneath. The instructions state that the Powertab should last 6-8 weeks and then you empty the liquid out using the easy pour spout.
Every morning after that I checked the unit and was shocked to see liquid in it within 24 hours. The liquid level has increased every day and alongside that the liquid on the window sill every morning is down to just a few drops. I don’t think I need any more proof than that to show me that it’s doing its job! The Unibond Humidity Absorber retails for £19.99 but is currently on offer on Amazon. The refills are also on there with a fab saving!
