  • This is good to do if you have a child or someone with asthma and they can't get to their medication. The steam will help them breathe easier, though it should only be considered a stand-in; find that medicine and get them the care they need.
  • Another good idea is to use a humidifier to help steam up the room!
  • If you have a small heater turn this on before you turn on the water that way its easier to make the room steamy. But remember to keep the heater AWAY from water!!
  • Test to see your reaction to heavy steam, as some people may struggle to breath and begin to hyperventilate.


  • If you enter the shower, you could burn your skin.
  • This will create mold if the walls and windows stay damp.
  • This is really bad for the paint work in your bathroom. If you only have a partially tiled bathroom with painted ceilings and walls then this is not a good idea.

Things You'll Need

  • A shower with hot water.
