    so is it better just to close all windows and put the air-con on throughout the day and night?

    that's what we've been doing... actually, for the kids, we've been turning on the air con when they go to sleep, but after a few hours, we've switched it off and turned on their fans.

    there is no way i'd open the windows when the pollution is this bad!

    as for not putting on the dehumidifier when in the room... why not? all it does is take the moisture out of the air... shouldn't be anything dangerous with that. i've always run it when in the same room.

    it's just that i read a review saying that it is better not to be in the same room as the dehumidifier is there to suck the moisture out leading the person to be dehydrated and also causes dry skin.

    there won't be much difference to your skin... if you drink water, you won't dehydrate.

    it doesn't make any difference if you put the dehumidifier in the room with you or if you go into the room after you've turned it off.

    after all, people all over the world live in MUCH drier places than hong kong... think egypt, northern china, mongolia, even large areas of north america...
