Condensation and ice on the windows resulting in mold on the main level, mold on items stored in the basement.

At first glance, that sounds more like a basement moisture problem than humidity from showers, etc.

Just out of curiosity, where do you live and what humidity levels are you seeing that you need a humidifier? We had a central fresh air system/dehumidifier installed when we finished our basement last year.
