The Way To Select The Best Cigar Humidors? Reason #679

6 Cigar Humidification Methods

Now that you have a solid comprehension of what a hygrometer does and everything can occur if your humidity is too high or too low, let us discuss how to actually control the humidity in your humidor. Unfortunately, you can not just use a damp paper towel in a ziplock bag...

1. The Hockey Puck Humidification Method
The unofficial hockey puck method was my first way to control the humidity in my humidor and boy, was it stressful. This is the"puck" which is included with humidors the majority of the time and requires you to soak it into propylene glycol. I discovered it for a bit of a guessing game because you have to make sure your"puck" doesn't run out of juice. It was mainly stressful since I utilized the free version from my humidor so results may vary. I just had to re-soak each 30-45 days and found it to be much more consistent. Soaking a humidor puck is quite easy. It takes about 30 seconds and you simply buy the propylene glycol separately. This remedy is odorless and only replaces water as a pure form of moisture. Using tap water may create problems due to chlorine or other substances, and bottled water won't stay moist provided that propylene glycol.

2. The Tubes or Mini Jars Cigar Humidification Method
Xikar and Drymistat make very easy to use products which you can just open and pop it in a humidor such as this
wineador. These have a much more controlled method of handling humidity than the puck method. The only bad thing is that you need to replace these entirely most of the time each 3-6 months completely. I don't advise trying to"re-soak" them together with the propylene glycol. The attractiveness of these, especially the tubes is they don't occupy much space in your humidor. However, depending on how big the jar arrangement will work better:

3. The Boveda Packs Cigar Humidification Method
Like the jar or tubes out of Xikar and Drymistat, it is possible to go with a very controlled system of Boveda humidity packs. These are my favourite cigar humidification method and ones that I use for the tupperdor today. However, they can err a bit on the large side concerning humidity should you use them in a tupperdor. I'd like to go several percentages lower than your preferred humidity as a result when you've got a tupperdor. Otherwise they do a great job of absorbing humidity if it is too high and growing if it is too low. Once your pack is stiff, then you simply throw it away. That being said, many claim to have the ability to recharge these very easily by simply soaking them for a couple of days after they become stiff. Although this may be a terrific way to spend less, the recharged packs definitely won't be as precise as an original. To discover more about how to recharge, check out this YouTube tutorial. For me personally, I really don't recharge because I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on cigars, I don't wish to cut any corners to save a couple bucks on Boveda packs.

4. The Heartfelt Beads Humidification Method
Heartfelt beads are a common humidity method that many recommend across cigar forums. This provider revolves around these beads and they have a great deal of diehard followers to their merchandise. These are probably one of the costlier options but last forever. They do require spraying of distilled water following week or two though so you've got to abide by a schedule. This way is a bit more geared towards the more advanced cigar collectors. Normally, cigar collectors will have a pouch of those beads or a coating at the base of the wineador.

5. The Electric Cigar Humidification Method
There's nothing greater than the place it and forget of an electric humidifier, especially if you've got a large or valuable set. All these are a bit expensive when compared with the other options such as
whynter arc-14s but there is the advantage of very little upkeep. The components also work great if plugged -- so you'll be required to conduct a flat cord to the exterior of your humidor. However some of these units have some really cool features like wi-fi capabilities and can humidify up to 1,000 cigars! (That would be a good deal of Boveda packs...) You really do need to replace the cartridge every 6 -- 12 weeks but it's relatively inexpensive.

6. The Kitty Litter Cigar Humidification Method
To get a larger wineador setup, many advocate kitty litter as a viable option to control humidity. I have personally never done this but many swear by it. This is a really similar method to this Heartfelt beads strategy outlined previously. The key is to get a kitty litter without a fragrance and spray distilled water every two to three weeks as required. I've seen very positive reviews from Exquisicat Crystals with very low fructose nor odor.
