6 Cigar Humidification Approaches

Now that you have a solid understanding of what a hygrometer does and everything can occur if your humidity is too high or too low, let's talk about how to really control the humidity in your humidor. Unfortunately, you can not just use a moist paper towel in a ziplock bag...

1. The Hockey Puck Humidification Method
The unofficial hockey puck system was my first way to control the humidity in my humidor and boy was it trying. This is actually the"puck" which is included with humidors the majority of the time and needs you to soak it into propylene glycol. I found it to be a bit of a guessing game since you have to make sure your"puck" doesn't run out of juice. It had been mainly stressful since I utilized the free version from my humidor so results may vary. I found I had to soak the puck every 15 days or so with a humidor of 30 cigars. I just had to re-soak every 30-45 days and found it to be much more consistent. Soaking a humidor puck is quite simple. It takes approximately 30 seconds and you just purchase the propylene glycol separately. This solution is odorless and only replaces water as a pure form of moisture. Using tap water may create problems due to chlorine or other chemicals, and distilled 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 merely open and pop it into a humidor such as this
tower of power humidor. These include a much more controlled way of handling humidity compared to the puck technique. The only bad thing is that you have to replace these completely most of the time every 3-6 weeks completely. I don't advise trying to"re-soak" them together with the propylene glycol. The attractiveness of these, particularly the tubes is that they don't occupy much room in your humidor. But, depending on how big the jar arrangement will work better:

3. The Boveda Packs Cigar Humidification Method
Similar to the tubes or jar out of Xikar and Drymistat, you can go with a very controlled system of Boveda humidity packs. These are my favorite cigar humidification strategy and ones that I utilize for the tupperdor today. However, they could err a bit on the large side concerning humidity if you use them in a tupperdor. I'd aim to go a few percentages lower in the preferred humidity as a consequence if you've got a tupperdor. (These packs come in all different humidity levels.) They do a fantastic job of absorbing humidity if it's too high and increasing if it is too low. As soon as your package is stiff, you then simply throw it off. That having been said, many claim to have the ability to recharge these very easily simply by soaking them for a couple of days after they become stiff. Even though this might be a great way to save money, the recharged packs certainly won't be as precise as an original. To find out more about the way to recharge, check out this YouTube tutorial. For me personally, I really don't recharge since if I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on cigars, I don't want to cut corners to save a few dollars on Boveda packs.

4. The Heartfelt Beads Humidification Method
Heartfelt beads are a common humidity method which many advocate across cigar forums. This provider revolves round these beads and they have a great deal of diehard followers to their merchandise. These are popular with larger humidors or even wineadors. These are probably one of the costlier choices but continue forever. They do require spraying of water following week or two though so you have to stick to a schedule. This way is somewhat more geared towards the advanced cigar collectors. Typically, cigar collectors will have a pouch of those a coating at the base of their wineador.

5. The Electric Cigar Humidification Method
There's nothing better than the set it and overlook an electric humidifier, particularly if you have a large or precious collection. All these are a little expensive compared to the other choices such as
humidor but there's the benefit of very little upkeep. The units also work best if plugged in -- so you will be asked to conduct a flat cable into the outside of your humidor. However some of those units have some really cool features like wi-fi capabilities and can humidify around 1,000 cigars! (That would be a good deal of Boveda packs...) You really do need to replace the cartridge every 6 -- 12 months but it's comparatively cheap.

6. The Kitty Litter Cigar Humidification Method
For a larger wineador installation, 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 technique to the Heartfelt beads strategy outlined above. The crucial thing is to get a kitty litter without a fragrance and spray on distilled water every two to three weeks as required. I have seen very positive reviews from Exquisicat Crystals with very low fructose nor scent.
