6 Cigar Humidification Methods

Now you have a good comprehension of exactly what a hygrometer does and everything can happen if your humidity is too high or too low, let's talk about how to really control the humidity in your humidor. Regrettably, 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 very first means to control the humidity in my humidor and boy was it stressful. This is the"puck" that is included with humidors the majority of the time and needs you to soak it into propylene glycol. I found it for a bit of a guessing game because you need to make sure your"puck" doesn't run out of juice. It was mainly stressful because I utilized the crummy free version in my humidor so results may vary. I found that I had to soak the puck every 15 days or so using a humidor of 30 cigars. I only had to re-soak each 30-45 days and found it to be much more consistent. Soaking a humidor puck is very simple. It takes approximately 30 seconds and you simply purchase the propylene glycol separately. This remedy is odorless and just replaces water as a pure form of moisture. Using tap water can cause problems due to chlorine or other chemicals, and distilled water won't stay moist as long as propylene glycol.

2. The Tubes or Mini Jars Cigar Humidification Method
Xikar and Drymistat make very simple to use products which you can just open and pop it into a humidor such as this
wineador. These include a much more controlled method of handling humidity than the puck method. The only bad thing is you have to replace these entirely most of the time every 3-6 months completely. I don't recommend attempting to"re-soak" them together with the propylene glycol. The beauty of them, particularly the tubes, is that they don't take up 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 from Xikar and Drymistat, you can go with a very controlled method of Boveda humidity packs. These are my favorite cigar humidification method and ones that I use for my tupperdor today. But they could err a bit on the high side in terms of humidity should you use them at a tupperdor. I'd like to go a few percentages lower in the preferred humidity for a result if you've got a tupperdor. (These packs come in all different humidity levels.) They do a great job of absorbing humidity whether it's too high and increasing if it's too low. As soon as your pack is stiff, you then just throw it off. That having been said, many claim to be able to recharge these quite easily by simply soaking them for a few days after they become stiff. Although this may be a great way to save money, the recharged packs definitely won't be as accurate as an original. To discover more about how to recharge, check out this YouTube tutorial. For me personally, I don't recharge since if I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on cigars, I don't want to cut any corners to save a few dollars on Boveda packs.

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

5. The Electric Cigar Humidification Method
There is nothing greater than the place it and forget of a electric humidifier, particularly in the event that you have a big or valuable set. These are a bit expensive compared to the other options such as
beyberk but there is the advantage of very little upkeep. The units also work best if plugged in -- so you will be asked to run a level cord to the exterior of your humidor. However a few of these units have some really cool features like wi-fi capacities and can humidify around 1,000 cigars! (That would be a good deal of Boveda packs...) You do have to replace the cartridge every 6 -- 12 months but it's relatively inexpensive.

6. The Kitty Litter Cigar Humidification Method
To get a bigger wineador setup, many advocate kitty litter as a viable choice to control humidity. This is a really similar technique to this Heartfelt beads strategy outlined previously. The key is to obtain a kitty litter without a fragrance and spray on distilled water every two to three weeks as needed. I've seen very positive testimonials out of Exquisicat Crystals with very low dust nor odor.
