6 Cigar Humidification Methods

Now that you have a solid comprehension of what a hygrometer does and everything can happen if your humidity is too high or too low, let's discuss how to really control the humidity in your humidor. Regrettably, you can't just use a damp 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 stressful. This is the"puck" which is included with humidors the majority of the time and needs you to soak it in propylene glycol. I found it for a little bit of a guessing game since you need to make sure your"puck" does not run out of juice. It was mostly stressful because I used the free version in my humidor so results may vary. But once I updated to some Xikar puck, it was smooth sailing. I just had to re-soak each 30-45 days and found it to be more consistent. Soaking a humidor puck is very simple. It takes approximately 30 seconds and you just purchase the propylene glycol separately. This solution is odorless and only replaces water as a more pure form of moisture. Using tap water can cause problems because of 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 easy to use products which you can just open and pop it into a humidor such as this
electric humidor. These have a much more controlled way of managing humidity than the puck technique. The only bad thing is you need to replace these completely the majority of the time every 3-6 months completely. I don't advise attempting to"re-soak" them together with the propylene glycol. The beauty of them, particularly the tubes, is they don't take up much space in your humidor. But, depending on how big the jar format will work better:

3. The Boveda Packs Cigar Humidification Method
Like the jar or tubes out of Xikar and Drymistat, you can go with a very controlled system of Boveda humidity packs. These are my favourite cigar humidification method and ones that I utilize for the tupperdor today. But they can err a bit on the large side concerning humidity should you use them at a tupperdor. I would aim to go several percentages lower in the desired humidity as a consequence if you've got a tupperdor. Otherwise they do a fantastic 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 simply throw it off. That being said, many claim to be able to recharge these very easily by simply soaking them for a few days once they become stiff. Even though this might be a great way to save money, the recharged packs definitely 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 don't recharge since 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 frequent humidity method that many advocate across cigar forums. This provider revolves around these beads and they have a great deal of diehard followers for their product. These are popular with larger humidors or even wineadors. These are most likely one of the costlier options but continue forever. They do require spraying of distilled water after two or week though so you've got to stick to a schedule. This way is a bit more geared towards the more advanced cigar collectors. Typically, cigar collectors will have a pouch of these beads or a layer at the bottom of their wineador.

5. The Electric Cigar Humidification Method
There's nothing greater than the set it and overlook an electric humidifier, particularly if you have a large or precious collection. These are a little expensive compared to the other options such as
tower of power humidor but there's the benefit of very little maintenance. The units also work great if plugged in -- so you'll be required to conduct a flat cable into the exterior of your humidor. However a few of those units have a few really cool features like wi-fi capacities and can humidify up to 1,000 cigars! (That could be a good deal of Boveda packs...) You really 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 installation, many advocate kitty litter as a viable choice to control humidity. This is a really similar method to this Heartfelt beads strategy outlined above. The crucial thing is to get a kitty litter with no odor and spray on distilled water every two to three weeks as needed. I have seen very positive reviews from Exquisicat Crystals with very low fructose nor odor.
