5 Things To Do with Charcoal Briquettes
You don’t have to light charcoal briquettes to get a good use out of them.
1. Make a Dehumidifier
A humid closet, attic, or basement can wreak havoc on your health as well as your clothes. Get rid of all that humidity with several homemade dehumidifiers. To make one, just put some charcoal briquettes in a coffee can, punch a few holes in the lid, and place in the humid areas. Replace the charcoal every few months.
2. Keep Root Water Fresh
Put a piece of charcoal in the water when you’re rooting plant cuttings. The charcoal will keep the water fresh.
3. Banish Bathroom Moisture and Odours
Hide a few pieces of charcoal in the nooks and crannies of your bathroom to soak up moisture and cut down on unpleasant smells. Replace them every couple of months.
4. Keep Books Mold-Free
If your bookcase has glass doors, it may provide a damp environment that can cause must and mold. Use a librarian’s trick of getting rid of musty odours on old books with charcoal. Simply place a piece of charcoal or two inside the bookcase, and this will keep the books dry and mold-free.
5. Fool the Kids!
It doesn’t have to be Christmas to fool them with a lump of coal. Did your little one lose a rotten tooth because they weren’t brushing? Let the Tooth Fairy teach them a lesson!
