Kitchens can become very humid whilst cooking, making hot drinks and washing up. Moisture is formed by boiling kettles, steam coming from hot food, hot water in washing up bowls and excess moisture coming out of the dishwasher after its cycle.
With everyday kitchen activities constantly going on, you will not be able to completely alleviate condensation. However, you are able to reduce the amount of condensation forming in your kitchen by following these steps.
4 ways to reduce condensation in your kitchen
- Open the window – Enabling the hot air to escape rather than settling on the window and other cold surfaces.
- Turn on the extractor fan – This will help to reduce the steam that forms whilst cooking.
- Keep the kitchen door closed – When cooking or boiling the kettle, close the kitchen door so the steam cannot escape into other rooms.
- Cover pots and pans – This will reduce the moisture that is released into the cooler air.
