moisture problem

Hi everyone!
I need your advice on solving moisture problem. My bathroom gets terribly wet and I can't afford an electric dehumidifier at the moment and wonder if the crystal-type moisture trap would be helpful? Does anyone use it?

moisture problem

What you need is circulation/air turnover.

If you can't install a mechanical venting bathroom fan (preferably on a timer switch), opening a window is better than nothing. If a double hung type, open a bit at top on upper pane, open a bit of bottom pane. Blinds and or shades not obstructing. That's your only hope of some limited circulation. Shorten shower/bath times.

Those crystals are mainly for cupboards and small confined areas that stay closed most of the time.
Even a box fan from wal-mart would help. Set it in the doorway and let it run for a while.
