Keeping your humidor in good condition

Q. How often should I condition my humidor and how often should I re-soak my humidifier?
– Brian B.

A. You should only need to “condition” your humidor once: when you first set it up for “seasoning.” If done properly, the box will continue to season itself over time as the moisture absorbed by the cedar walls reaches a consistent ebb & flow.

The humidifier should be re-charged only when you see the RH% dip below the 67% mark. Try to keep the RH at average of 70%, but try not to let it get any higher than 72%.

Finally, check your cigars regularly, at least 3 times a week, to ensure they’re supple; not too moist or too dry.
