Updated on January 29, 2013

Find the Best Bathroom Dehumidifier for Damp Air

A bathroom dehumidifier can solve your moisture problems if you are dealing with an unvented, damp, or wet bathroom. Using a mini dehumidifier after steamy showers and baths can prevent damage to trim and wood, the build-up of mildew and mold, and allergens associated with them. It will also help with the musty smell that may linger in the washroom, long after the water is off.

Dehumidifiers for bathrooms can also assist in air conditioned or heated air, where running an exhaust fan seems counterproductive. A small and quiet unit will pull the unwanted humidity from the air, and leave you feeling more comfortable. These compact and efficient moisture absorbing units work in unventilated lavatories or act as a supplement to exhaust fans.

So if the air feels heavy after a shower, the towels don't dry, and your venting options are limited, here are ways to dry out your restroom on a budget.

A wall mounted bathroom unit is ideal for rising hot steamy air, but even a compact dehumidifier simply set off the ground and placed on a shelf will do the trick. Most small bathroom dehumidifiers have auto-shut off and full indicator lights, and work quietly in the background drying the air.

A small dehumidifier for bathrooms is an inexpensive and quick fix. No installation will be needed, and there are many options for efficient moisture removal. Below are some of the best bathroom humidifier options.

A small restroom dehumidifier will hold about 16-32 ounces of water, which is 1 or 2 pints. Wireless silica gel dehumidifiers are bucketless units that capture moisture with no water holding tank or electricity needed to run. A disposable dehumidifier is ideal for musty spaces in a home, as they are inexpensive and absorb odor. They are not ideal on their own, but odor removal is a huge plus. When paired with a dehumidifier or exhaust fan, they can readily freshen the air in small spaces and help prevent mold and mildew.

Below, you will see some great options in bathroom dehumidifiers, all that are compact and efficient, ideal for powder rooms.

Advantages of Disposable Dehumidifiers

Disposable Dehumidifiers are not brand new, but many people are still uncertain about using them. They can be likened to those silica gel pouches you get with most purchases now, they keep moisture out of goods for safe travel and storage.

Water Adsorbing Dehumidifiers

They work with beads, often silica gel, which pulls the moisture and water from the air, it is a desiccant. By absorbing the water, they remove it permanently from the surrounding air.

The product then either needs to be disposed of or renewed. The renewable beads require that you plug them in for about 10-15 hours, usually in an area that can readily accept the moisture. This is often a garage or outdoor location.

No matter which type of disposable dehumidifier you buy, you can be certain that the convenience and portability of these units will allow for many home uses.

In damp high moisture locations like bathrooms, closets, RV's, or even closed areas like gun safes, people are finding many benefits to these nonelectric mini dehumidifiers.
