    I have a fairly new humidor that still smells like cedar. I'm wondering how long till a cigar absorbs the smells around it? Like other cigars and in my case, the spanish cedar smell that my humidor still has.. it's pretty faint, I have to shove my head in my little 50-75 cigar humidor in order...

    Hello everyone, First poster here. Bought my first soft flame butane lighter today. It's one of those lighters where you roll/flick a an igniter in one of the corners of the thing to light it. Like a colibri Wellington. My question is: is it supposed to always be 'on'? It's always 'leaking' a...

    Hello, I recently purchased a Casio G-shock military style watch, (which is excellent by the way). I have been avoiding smoking while wearing it so far. I was wondering what your experiences with rubber watch bands were? How much of the smell sticks with the band? Will it wear off? I didn't want...

    I was preparing my cooler in anticipation of my Spanish cedar trays arriving on the next mail plane when I realized that I had only scented bleach. So I got to digging through my cleaning supplies, then had an idea... distilled vinegar. My mom used to use distilled vinegar to clean her floors...

    What is the "best" way to get out the smell of cigars in ones garage? I keep the side door open and I open up the garage door some to help vent/draft the garage while smoking. But afterwards there is some left over smells. Is there any good sprays or candles? :mmph:

    I know the answer is here somewhere - I'm just on my phone so it's harder to search the forums. I think I read stuffing the cooler with crumpled up newspaper works, is that correct?

    I'm setting up my NewAir AW 181E while I wait for my drawers and shelve to be delivered. I've got a desert plate on the bottom of the unit with Activated Charcoal on it. Question is this....Should I have the cooler plugged in and on or should I leave it unplugged and off. I would think that...

    I have a small wineador (16 count) that is sitting pretty well as far as temperature and RH, but I've recently noticed a different smell in there. I don't really know how to describe it. It's not quite plasticky, though it may not be a huge stretch for someone to maybe call it plastic-like. The...

    When I was a little kid, I used to (and still do for that matter), love the smell of my dads friends corn cob. It brings back so many memories, of when he'd come over, or when we'd go to their house, or say up at their country house in Maine. I used to love waking up to the smell of coffee...

    I just received a 4 finger crocodile/horn case from Andre Garcia. Well built, beautiful case, but it's still off gassing fumes from construction. I am leaving it open to "air" but anyone have recommendations to help move it along? Leaving for vacation Thursday AM and would like to use it.

    So how often is it that you get a retaliatory strike from someone who wins your contest?? My girlfriend tried leaving for lunch with her sister got caught in the cross fire and the vapors from the box nearly knocked her unconscious. She stumbles in carrying what can only be described as...

    Can you really completely get rid of it? I did the bleach/water overnight, now it has sat with newspaper in it for 2 days, and now it's sitting with some baking soda inside, you can still smell something. Will filling it up with spanish cedar take care of the rest? Can you truly completely...

    Several months ago, I purchased several pipes from an antique store. A few of them had been previously smoked but it had been a number of years ago. The original owner had passed away and his family had sold them along with other thing to this antique store a couple years ago. I noticed that the...

    so i have one of those otterbox/cigar caddy/pelican style 5 stick cases. one of the things i was afraid of was that the foam could develop a musty smell that my leather and plastic-only cases haven't gotten. i tried leaving it open to air it out for a week, facing down so dust doesn't get in...

    What IS it? Does anyone know why some cigars smell strongly of poo? I've had many over the years that have "that" smell, but I have a particular bundle of "shorts" that smell real yucky but taste SO good! Is it fermentation? Is it the tobacco strains? Soil? Anyone?

    Okay, one of my favorite things to do when I would get a box of Punch Double Maduros or Henry Clay was to open up the box, pull out the uncello'd wheel of cigars and stick it up to my face and just inhale deeply for about 10 minutes. :shock: Anyway... since I have been out of the cigar business...
