3 Ways to Use Charcoal Briquettes

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 home-made 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.

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.

Keep books mold-free
