How to create your own moisture collector at minimal cost

The first thing you need to do is get an empty plastic bottle, 100 grams of coarse salt, 10 drops of essential oil in your favorite scent (e.g., lavender is lovely), a piece of cotton fabric, some cotton, two rubber bands, a cutter, and scissors.

Cut the top of the bottle to three-quarters, wrap the neck with the fabric, and secure it with two rubber bands.

Place some cotton in the bottle and pour in the essential oil of the scent you prefer. Invert the top part of the plastic bottle so that it touches the bottom part, forming a funnel.

Pour the salt into the neck of the bottle, and your collector is ready. All you have to do, according to, is place it in a room, the most humid one, to start absorbing the moisture.
