Background

Back in August 2022, I was looking for ways to better dehumidify my home as I live in a place where humidity is considered high. I do use those disposable dehumidifiers but I will have to keep buying when it's used up. So as usual I went online to search for ideas.

I tried to use baking soda and leave it in the open. I don't think it is a good idea in the long run as it may result in baking soda being blown away if I turn on the fan, and also I will have to replenish it. I continued my search and found the Xiaomi SOTHING Plant Dehumidifier DSHJ-DG-006. 

It is not a big dehumidifier to cover a room, but it is able to use electricity to recharge. As such I decided to purchase one to try it out.

The Stuff

The Xiaomi SOTHING Plant Dehumidifier DSHJ-DG-006 comes only in white and has a rectangular curve shape design. As the name goes it has a clear case top with a "plant" shape which contains beads inside to show the status of the dehumidifier.

Based on the information provided on the back of the box, here are details of the stuff:

Usage and Experience

I have used the Xiaomi SOTHING Plant Dehumidifier DSHJ-DG-006 for a few weeks since this post. I placed it in my bathroom and after a few days, the beads inside the "plant" changes from the initial lighter shade to a darker shade of orange.

After a week or so, some of the beads started to turn green in color. That is where I decided to charge the dehumidifier. I charged it for about 10 hours or so and was able to get it to almost the initial bead color, but definitely it needed a longer time to be fully charged.

Since the dehumidifier has shown that it works, I decided to purchase an additional 3 more of it to use for my other bathroom and to rotate it when it's charging.
