    I came home from work today and my humidity is reading 77% I'm on day 19 - From all the reading I've done, this is too high, but I don't know how to lower it - both plugs are pulled and my reservoirs are only partly filled anyway - we have had rain showers today so I am sure the natural humidity is up too. Any suggestions??

    I don't know if I would do anything. It's high,but not off the charts. Sometimes I will just raise up the top for a few minutes,hoping to bring it down a little. Good luck!

    Thank you all! It is down to 76% so I think it should be okay!
