    You may want to ensure that the dehumidifier is working correctly. If it is, you can use a ventilation or exhaust fan to assist with humidity reduction. If there are any leaks in your basement, or your gutters are clogged, you will want to fix those. If you think that the windows might be entryways for humidity, you may want to try weatherstripping them. For a relatively temporary solution, placing charcoal briquettes, rock salt, or baking soda in a container and changing it out every so often will help to absorb moisture and reduce humidity. Depending on how intense the humidity is, you can also get a second dehumidifier, or have a contractor inspect the space to see if there is a larger issue at hand.
