6 Cigar Humidification Approaches

Now that you have a solid understanding of what a hygrometer does and what can happen if your humidity is too high or too low, let us talk about how to really control the humidity in your humidor. Regrettably, you can't just use a moist paper towel in a ziplock bag...

1. The Hockey Puck Humidification Method
The unofficial hockey puck method was my very first way 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 requires one to boil it in propylene glycol. I found it to be a bit of a guessing game because you need to be sure your"puck" does not run out of juice. It was mostly stressful since I utilized the free version from my humidor so results may vary. I discovered that I needed to soak the puck every 15 days or so using a humidor of 30 cigars. But after I updated to a Xikar puck, it was smooth sailing. I only had to re-soak every 30-45 days and found it to be much more consistent. Soaking a humidor puck is quite simple. It takes approximately 30 minutes and you just purchase the propylene glycol separately. This remedy is odorless and only replaces water as a more pure form of moisture. Using tap water can cause problems due to chlorine or other substances, and bottled water will not 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 may just open and pop it into a humidor such as this
cabinet humidor. These include a much more controlled method of handling humidity compared to the puck technique. The only bad thing is you need to replace these entirely most of the time each 3-6 months completely. I don't recommend attempting to"re-soak" them with the propylene glycol. The beauty of these, especially the tubes, is that they don't occupy much room in your humidor. But, depending on how big the jar format will work better:

3. The Boveda Packs Cigar Humidification Method
Similar to the jar or tubes out of Xikar and Drymistat, it is possible to go with a very controlled method of Boveda humidity packs. These are my favorite cigar humidification method and ones that I utilize for the tupperdor today. But they can err a little on the high side in terms of humidity should you use them at a tupperdor. I would aim to go a few percentages lower than your desired humidity as a result if you have a tupperdor. (These packs come in all different humidity levels.) Otherwise they do a fantastic job of consuming humidity if it is too high and increasing if it is too low. Once your pack is stiff, then you just throw it away. That having been said, many claim to have the ability to recharge these very easily simply by soaking them for a couple of days after they get stiff. Even though this might be a great way to spend less, the recharged packs definitely won't be as precise as a first. To discover more about how to recharge, take a look at this YouTube tutorial. For me personally, I really don't recharge because if I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on cigars, I don't wish to cut corners to save a couple bucks on Boveda packs.

4. The Heartfelt Beads Humidification Method
Heartfelt beads are a frequent humidity method which many advocate across cigar forums. This company revolves around these beads and they have a lot of diehard followers to their merchandise. These are popular with larger humidors or wineadors. These are most likely one of the costlier choices but last forever. They do require spraying of water following week or two though so you have to abide by a schedule. This method is somewhat more geared towards the more advanced cigar collectors. Typically, cigar collectors will have a pouch of these a layer at the base of the wineador.

5. The Electric Cigar Humidification Method
There is nothing greater than the set it and forget of an electric humidifier, especially in the event that you have a large or precious collection. All these are a little expensive when compared with the other choices such as
wineador but there is the benefit of very little upkeep. The units work great if plugged in -- so you will be required to conduct a flat cord to the exterior of your humidor. However a few of these units have a few really cool features like wi-fi capabilities and can humidify up to 1,000 cigars! (That would be a lot of Boveda packs...) You really do have to replace the cartridge every 6 -- 12 months but it's comparatively cheap.

6. The Kitty Litter Cigar Humidification Method
To get a larger wineador setup, many advocate kitty litter as a viable choice to control humidity. I've personally never done this but many swear by it. This is a really similar technique to the Heartfelt beads strategy outlined above. The crucial thing is to get a kitty litter without a odor and spray on distilled water every two to three weeks as needed. I've seen very positive reviews out of Exquisicat Crystals with very low fructose nor scent.
