drip-lay

stick on micro gutters for old window condensation

This is a cheap alternative to towels or squeegees in the fight against morning window condensation.

The drip-lay strip is a u shaped channel bent in a very slight V shape. At the bottom of the v is an outlet for any container closest to hand. The strip has a peel sticky edge to stick to drip-lay to the bottom of the window. The ends of the v strip can be trimmed to suit the size of the window.

Of course it would be better if there was a machine made from with black heat exchanger covered in lenses, driving micro fluid thermal siphoning to lower the temperature of a connected fractal dew beetle tree. This machine sits in the corner, half in both a container and light.

Isolate a factor and optimise it. Got to love science. https://inhabitat.c...thin-air/dew_bank2/

       Good opportunity to establish a small snail farm with the constant trickle of dampness being absorbed by a feed of paper from a nearby document shredder.

       [xenzag] Mushrooms, of a range of families, might be a better call for the office.   

       True, it would be slow, Maybe I should include a can of clear nano-coating water repellent.

       Few weeks ago I had to drill a hole to fit a concentric barrel socket into a several years old Maplin dehumidifier, as the original rectangular weird can’t-find-anywhere two-pin 12Vdc couple of amps plug and socket it was designed with came over all melty and burny one day in the spring of this year just before I went out to work normally leaving it on. I pulled the plug from the burning-smelling socket and it enlongated into strands of molten plastic leaving behind one of the pin connector sleeves, which I think is a built-in diagnostic indication that something may be amiss. I cut the molten plug off and fitted a heavy capacity concentric barrel plug, and now all is good again. It only does upstairs, I really could do with getting a bigger dehumidifier to do the whole house.

       Simpler to keep the existing dehumidifier and change the house, shirley ?   

       // Mushrooms ... better call for the office. //   

       Then you could use the plentiful supply of bullshit as compost. Perfect.
