No humidifier? No problem! Here's an easy fix.

By Kiersten Hickman, The Family Handyman

We all know how the air can get super dry during those cold, winter months. Dry air can affect everything from your skin, eyes, throat, hair, lips, even seasonal allergies, and illnesses. Keep a humidifier in your home is an easy way to solve the dry air issue at home—here’s everything you need to know about humidifiers. But what if you don’t have a humidifier at home? Well, you can just use your slow cooker.

Yes, it’s true! A slow cooker can actually serve as a humidifier in your home, and it’s extremely easy to do. So if you have a slow cooker and you’re looking for some fresh air in your home this winter, here’s what to do:

Step one: Fill it with water, set it on “high”

First, place the slow cooker in a spot that you would like to have fresh air. Since the living room is probably a gathering place in your home, find a place for the crockpot in there. Fill up the crockpot with fresh water and cover it with the lid. Set the slow cooker on high.

Step two: Take off the lid, set it to “low”

When steam starts to roll off the lid from the slow cooker, you know that it’s ready. Take the lid off of the crockpot and turn it on low. Let the moisture from the water work its magic!

Step three: Fill the water if necessary

If the water is starting to get low in the slow cooker, top it off with more water. If the water isn’t warm enough, you can always throw the lid back on it to heat it up.

Step four: If desired, add essential oils

If you’re looking to add some fresh smells in your home, adding drops of essential oils will be a nice touch. Different essential oils are known to have different purposes. If you’re looking to clear up sinuses, for example, use eucalyptus. If you’re looking for calm, try some lavender. If you’re looking for cozy and seasonal, add some orange and even throw in some cinnamon sticks!
