In humid conditions, you can put a small tray under your lamp in the rare instance that the lamp may pool water.
Due to the hygroscopic properties, it is best to keep salt lamps out of humid environments (outdoors, damp rooms etc). Hygroscopic means that the salt likes to suck out water from its environment. If you live in an extremely humid environment, it is recommended that you keep your lamp turned on for as long as possible throughout the day. For best results, leave it on for the entirety of the day.Try to keep the lamp dry as much as you can. If you believe that water has dripped into the light connections, replace the cord immediately. Additionally, It is best to plug your salt lamp directly into the wall without the use of a power board.
