how to humidify incubators

We are having trouble keeping some of our incubators humid. The rel 
humidity in our 25C incubator is around 30% - I understand 60% is the 
optimum. We have a large tray of water in the bottom of the incubator, but 
this is clearly not enough.

Does anyone have any suggestions for either a way of humidifying the 
incubators or a fly food recipe that doesn't dry out so much?
