Distilled water isn't produced in a fecal particle laden environment. It's produced in a much more sterile factory. Think of it this way, if you can smell something, there's particles of what you're smelling. I would drink distilled water. You couldn't pay me to drink someone's "homemade" distilled water from their shower.

Also dw is scentless. Shower steam.. Not so much. We all know how quickly an infused cigar will ruin an entire humidor. Imagine how quick your Axe body gel, in steam form, will permeate your sticks..

I wouldn't need to - you inhale it every time you take shower Relax, my point is that technically water is water; and the smell is mostly due to soap etc

BTW: drinking distilled water may kill!

Fixing dry cigars?

Food for thought...run tap water in your engine (coolant system) for a while instead of distilled water..then tear it down and tell me water is water ...

Heh, yeah. But again, what is distilled water made of? Anything else than tap water? It's 21th century, dude - there's no magy behind that.

Sure, you will. Just... there's no point to panic. Man, I've even heard of people buying water for injection in drug store and using it for humidifiers. Because it is sterile. Well it's their money but it's total misunderstanding, as it is only sterile till they open it up. Kinda similar here - vapor IS distilled. Sure it's not sterile but the one from gas station is not either.

No disagreement here brothers. Remember, we aren't talking about the whole universe of the humidor, but just a couple of zombies that we are attempting to wake from the dead.

Bozoo is in fact spot on. Distilled water is the condensate from boiling plain ol' water. We are also not talking about watering the cigars, nor taking them into the shower with you. . . . It is just the increased humidity in the bathroom. Kinda an osmosis and diffusion thing.

This stuff is not magic; more chemistry, biology, and physics. . . .

. . . and loving the lively debate!

Happy holidays all,

Tevis
