Using the right kind of water in your humidifier

Q. Is tap water or bottled waterOK to use in my humidor?
– Thomas B.

A. Negatory amigo. DISTILLED water ONLY. Never use tap water, or bottled water (I presume you mean the type used for drinking). Mineral deposits and/or mold will eventually rear their ugly heads and ruin your humidifier.
