Muggy house? This sleek dehumidifier 'sucks water like a champ': Snag it on sale

At just under six pounds, it's easy to move around your home and can reduce humidity levels by up to 35%.

A thick slice of cake? Yes, please. Thick air? Not so much. And while many of us look forward to warmer weather and more hours of sunlight, summer just can't seem to rid itself of its unfavorable little sidekick: humidity. But we can take steps to manage the bane of the season, first and foremost by investing in a good dehumidifier. The one that's caught our eye — and the eyes of many an Amazon shopper — is the NineSky Dehumidifier, a compact yet powerful appliance that can cover up to 800 square feet. Put it in your bedroom, bathroom or anywhere you could use a little relief. Speaking of relief, your wallet can rest easy knowing that it's currently 30% off.

No one wants to feel like Swamp Thing in their own home — this moisture-vanquishing monster will help ensure that doesn't happen.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

Upon consulting with our price trackers, we determined that this is as low as this dehumidifier has been on sale for all year — and with the official start of summer just around the corner, it's unlikely to dip more than that. Plus, it has thousands of perfect ratings and an impressive 4.3-star average rating to back it up. Just note that this deal is for Prime members, but non-members can still get it on sale for $90.

Why do I need this? 🤔

As one reviewer so eloquently put it, the NineSky Dehumidifier "sucks water like a champ." You can choose between a high-speed daytime mode for more efficiency or a nighttime mode that's less powerful and, in turn, much quieter. (As in, softer than the sound of water being poured.) Its dual semiconductors can absorb up to 34 ounces of excess moisture per day, dramatically reducing your home's humidity levels by as much as 35%. Phew.

At just under six pounds, it's portable enough to move to different rooms as needed, and its slim design won't take up too much space (or attract too much attention). One cool feature is its ability to change color: There are seven to choose from, making it a fun nightlight as well — don't worry, you can turn them off if you'd prefer! Plus, its auto-shutoff function means it'll stop working once the water tank is full so you're not coming home to a surprise puddle on the floor.

What reviewers say 💬

Over 5,800 Amazon customers are enjoying comfier air quality, thanks to the NineSky Dehumidifier.

Pros 👍

"I recently moved to Florida and my thermostat was showing that the inside of my house had a 70% humidity level," explained one happy user. "Boy was I surprised that after running this dehumidifier for just one day, it was almost full of water and the humidity level in my house was down to 40%! ... I was also able to not have my air conditioning running so cold because it felt cooler in my home! This thing will save you money in the long run!"

"We were finding mold on our mattress, bedroom walls and doorways, and my skin was starting to break out from it," wrote another. "We immediately bought this after we took care of the mold, and we haven’t seen a single problem yet! This dehumidifier is lightweight and compact, but definitely does the job!"

"We recently added the NineSky Dehumidifier to our TV room, which had issues with a damp chimney," said a third. "The difference has been night and day! The device is quiet and aesthetically pleasing, and lightweight versus other, more bulky (and ugly) dehumidifiers we've had in the past. Would recommend for those smaller spaces that need a little assistance staying dry."

Cons 👎

"The only critique I have is I would like to see them change the beep sound to less like a microwave and more quiet and subtle," shared an overall satisfied shopper. "I got this for a bathroom that doesn’t have a fan to help reduce humidity and moisture, it works very well."

"I wish it had a timer setting," wrote a final fan, "but overall a very good product! ... I live in a very humid environment ... I had it on just for a couple of hours, and it managed to pull about half the container size full of water."

Snag it in black, white, gray or this sleek silver.

Have a smaller space that needs coverage? This is the one for you:

This cutie is ideal for spaces of up to 300 square feet and has the same lighting and auto-shutoff features as its larger counterpart. At just 3.2 pounds, you could put it on a desk or nightstand, and it has a handle for easy carrying. 

"Small but mighty!" exclaimed a reviewer. "My office is in my basement so it’s a bit humid. After one day, the air felt so much better and my papers weren’t curling up. I love it!"

And if you want to track your home's humidity levels in real time, this little doodad lets you do just that:

With its minimalist, easy-to-read screen, this No. 1 bestseller displays just two things: temperature and humidity. (Oh, and there's a fun smiley face that pops up when your home has struck the ideal balance between the two.) According to the brand, the readings are updated every 10 seconds so you'll always have the most accurate info. When it's unsatisfied with your home's levels, the smiley face will don a less happy expression to let you know your dehumidifier/AC needs to be turned up or down. You can stand it up on a table, mount it to a wall or stick it to your fridge via its magnetic backing.

"I like the size of these thermostats," said one cool customer. "They are small, but the numbers are big and easy to read from a distance. I like to know the temperature of the environment around me, so I put them in my kitchen, bedroom and the patio."
