If you are waking up each morning only to find your windows dripping with condensation and gradually making the frames damp and mouldy, then we might have found a solution for you – though it’s a bit of an unusual one.
A fan of cleaning guru Mrs Hinch recently took to social media to ask for help with this very issue, reports The Express.
Posting in a Facebook group, the woman, named Kymberly, explained that she was having an issue with condensation on all of the windows at the front of her home and described it as being “quite bad”.
She wrote: “Window condensation… how do you all manage to wake up every morning without it.
“It’s on every window at the front of my house and it’s quite bad. Buying a dehumidifier for each room isn’t an option either.”
A number of people responded to the post sharing tips and tricks for Kymberly.
But one of the most affordable and interesting responses came from a woman named Hannah, who recommended she try getting some cat litter and a sock – items many people may already have in their houses.
“I know this sounds crazy,” she said. “But… pop cat litter into old socks and tie at the top, it’s cheap and lasts for ages.
“We use this in our old campervan too, works a treat.”
And Hannah wasn’t the only one to suggest this rather unusual hack for stopping windows getting condensate.
The idea was seconded by Linda, who agreed: “Buy a bag of cat litter, fill socks with it and place it on each window sill.
“It will draw in the moisture.”
She added that you should change the cat litter every month to keep it working and fresh.
