Condo with blow heat

So whats the greatest thing about living in a condo with bone dry blow heat, that dries out your christmas tree, your skin, your sinuses, lips and dog gone near everything else in here...

Your dishes dry in record time!

In the cold weather, air loses its ability to hold moisture, causing the problems you describe.

The solution is to add a humidifier. Either a stand-alone in the largest living area or one that attaches to the furnace. This will distrubute moisture into the air and help with your problems. Of course, you'll have to wait longer for the dishes to dry...

try growing cactii, and dehydrating fruits and making jerky. also, get a cotton rope for drying clothes, and save on the dryer.

when life gives you lemons, make powdered lemonade concentrate!
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"
