      Chalk Dehumidifier: A bundle of chalk hung in a closet will absorb extra moisture and keep clothing fresh and dry, and takes up much less room than an electric dehumidifier. Mount a hook in the closet, out of the way of clothes or linens. Fasten a rubber band around a dozen pieces of chalk, and cover band with ribbon, allowing enough loop to hang chalk. . .Helpful hints
