Clean and easy! WaterPillows will keep up to 25 cigars fresh for a month, or longer. Just soak a pillow in DISTILLED water for 20 seconds and watch it puff-up. Slip it into its baggie, put it in your humidor, and forget it. Ideal for factory-made boxes, travel humidors, and homemade containers.
I buy these 10-12 at a time. I use them in my small acrylic humidor, zip lock bags, and Travel humidors. Between uses I toss them in my bigger humidors or keep them together in a zip lock type bag. They regulate humidity pretty well. They are reusable and cheaper than Bovedas. Don't get me wrong, Bovedas are awesome. But these cost a lot less. The only problem I've ever had is a couple were putting out about 80% humidity. But I just recharged these with pg solution. I love these things.
These are great! They work as described. Simple and cheap, you can't go wrong!
I've used these most often in the regular plastic bags you get when you buy single cigars, and they not only work well, each pillow can be reused several times. I've even used them in my humidor, although not to replace better methods for premium smokes. Well worth the $.
Have tried various devices for my second string cigars, from Drymistat, ceramic blocks, and just about anything less than $10. These were finally effective and reliable.I put them in empty large Splenda or Nevella sweetener bags - holds about a bundle or box of cigars. Their foil layer keeps in the flavorful VOCs that can excape through plastic bags. (After all, it;s the VOCs that give flavor, not water vapor!) Keeps the cigars fine, one pillow per bag. The foil also keeps the moisture in, so they last for months without recharging.
