Solve moisture problems without harming the environment.
Lisa's expecting a baby in a few months and she spends a lot of time planning the nursery. She wants an eco-friendly space for her baby with lots of natural elements and recycled items. She's recently had a few challenges to address and is looking for an environmentally safe way to do so.
- Lisa lives on the Atlantic coast, in Savannah, Georgia. The air is humid most of the time, even inside. She wants to make sure she protects her baby's photos and christening gown. Her own baby photos are sticking together and trying to pull them apart destroys them.
- She was recently given a large box of baby hand-me-downs from a friend who had them stored in an attic box for a couple of years. The items aren't stained and are still reusable if she can remove the odors. Not everything was designed to throw in the washer.
- That got her thinking of her own baby's future hand-me-downs. How can she store her items to save for the next baby, in a way that will prevent moldy odor from forming in the first place?
- Lisa and Steve love their apartment in the historic district. But as new parents they're reading about the hidden allergens in old buildings. Mold and musty smells could make their baby sick. New buildings come with their own concerns so they'd rather find a solution that doesn't require moving.
If you're trying to baby-proof your home, using little buckets of harmful chemicals for moisture control is not the way to do it!
