One of the negative side effects of winter is the dry air in the house. The red lights on our 5-gallon humidifier seem to always be on, begging for more water. Adding moisture makes for much easier breathing, yet we must watch carefully that there's no condensation on our windows.
My two pet-peeves about winter's dryness are sore nasal passages and static cling.
Then there's that darned static cling when my slacks look and feel like they've been haphazardly glued to my legs. My remedy for that is taking a dryer sheet, such as Bounce, and rubbing it on the inside of the slacks.....a simply easy fix. Oh, I know there are specific sprays for this, but we have to remember that frugality plays a part in everything I do.
