Default Refresher...

Back at the beginning of this thread, I posted some links to help us cope with the dreaded condensation. (for those of us who are affected by it)

Here's a link to that post for you

Hope this helps make life easier now the late season is here

EDIT
Just checking the links work!

Without checking all the thread...Dare I suggest an investment in a Window Vac as it can be used for condensation and brilliant for when you clean windows at van or home...

Hi all

Aldi in Ireland have these Midi Dehumidifiers coming in this Sunday
https://www.aldi.ie/en/specialbuys/s...ehumidifier-2/

I'm wondering if it is worth us purchasing one or two. Just to keep the air 'dry' for more efficient heating from the oil filled rads?
Or will all the ventilation points in the static make any benefits negligible?

Love the Karcher window vac, I use it on Windows and shower area and bathroom mirror
Also good for any spills.

We have half a dozen re-usable dehumidifying eggs dotted around the caravan and up to now we haven't had a pick of bother with condensation! So easy to use and can be used over and over again with little fuss.

Now we have been informed, that using the salt dishes overwinter can cause the soft furnishings (curtains, blinds and seating material) to rot. Seems an absurd thing to occur, what has anyone else to say on this point. Not forgetting that we love the salt 'pots'.

A clay cat litter seems to be the best option.

From reading another post on salt, albeit some time ago, I seem to remember that salt can also cause your water taps to tarnish.

Maybe someone can confirm that.
