    Hi, I have a 100-count humidor and I am currently using a crystal gel humidifier filled with propylene glycol. Since winters are very dry in Quebec, I struggle to keep RH above 60% RH. So last week I ordered a medium sized heartfelt beads tube. 1) Would it be a bad idea to use beads together...

    I'm currently using the gel/crystals as humidification in my humidor - is it neccesary to use the PG Solution or is DW fine?

    Hi there. I'm a little confused. I have a credo, supplemented with a xikar gel jar in my humidor. I've been refilling them with a propylene glycol mix (50/50). The humidor seems to struggle to hold ~70% as time goes on though - but that could be temperature issues though. Got to thinking...

    Has any one ever add (propylene glycol and distilled water in a mix of approximately 50/50) to Kitty litter crystals. If so is it a bad thing to do? My buddy did this and it is working for now. Is it better than just "distilled water"? Thanks, Matt

    i heard some people dont use Propylene glycol continuously in their humi and instead put some in periodically (like every two or three months for a few weeks) question is if this would adequately kill off any mold or bacteria that accumulates.. i just dont really want to keep the big sponge...

    I was putting some Cigar Juice into one of the humidifiers and I must of put too much in it. Later I went back to get a stick and noticed some of it had run out onto the wood inside the humidor. I wiped it up but the wood still shows a stain. It also dripped on to two of my sticks as well. My...

    I never knew there was such a thing as PG until I discovered cigars were more important than my wife, children and making the house payment. Then, suddenly, a bottle of PG and some florists' oasis was a key part of getting through the day. Then, a couple of years later, I discover PG is added...

    Hi all; A few weeks back I bought one of these jars of humidification gel crystals, and I've been reading conflicting advice about whether to recharge it with distilled water or propylene glycol solution. Should I use one or the other exclusively? Should I alternate? What do you say?

    I just got a new humi and some pre-mixed propylene glycol. I know its normally recommended that you use a 50/50 mix of the propylene glycol and distilled water to prepare a new humidor, but i was curious what would happen if you used 100% of the propylene glycol instead of the 50/50. Would that...

    Some of the humidifier solutions advertised are a 50/50 propylene glycol/distilled water solution and others are 80/20 propylene glycol/distilled water solution what is preferred or is there a real difference. Which will help to keep a 70% humidity level. Also what is in the humi-stat jars i see...

    Hello all, I recently was at the Wall Mart Pharmacy for something and I Had been thinking about cigars all day as usually. So while I was waiting I was chatting with the pharmacist and I asked him if they sold pure Propylene Glycol. He thought for a bit then asked what I was going to use it for...

    Duh ... I edited your post instead of replying. I don't think there will be any problem with PG on your cigar .. we use it in many food applications.

    I use propylene glycol in my coolidor and desh top humi. Recently the Rh has been slipping to where it is now down to about 60-63% in both. The coolidor has some of the crystal stuff the you pour the glycol into when it gets dry and the desk top has that green stuff in a plastic holder with...

    I spent a better part of the morning trying to buy propylene glycol since a little bottle of 50/50 costs $7 and a quart of PG costs $5. And yes I know I should buy the beads and will buy the beads but not just yet. Anyway, you would think I was looking to buy nuclear waste or something...
