    I'll be honest... I just could NEVER get Hearfelt beads or Cat Litter to work WELL in my wooden humidors or my Wineador. Perhaps it's Florida's crazy weather... 100% humidity one day, 10% the next... or the intense heat... who knows. I like the Cigar Oasis hygrometers... A regular Oasis XL...

    I am now on my second replacement Hydra in less than 3 weeks. The older LG is still kicking but the newest units I have come across both have power supply issues. I'm waiting for replacements as we speak, but both are from reputable dealers so I have no worries about receiving them in a timely...

    Well, my vinodor stopped blowing cold air a while ago, just in time for the Virginia summer. My ETC also flaked out about the same time, not sure if that was coincidence or not. I've looked at it a few times and poked in various places with a multimeter, think that the PCB is fine but it's the...

    I went to my local tobacconist to buy a humidifer and just asked for the smallest one and they gave me a Dr. RH humidifer. I only found out later that it says to use their own Dr. RH Cigar Remedy (whose ingredients are only PG and distilled water). and specifically NOT to use 50/50 PG/distilled...

    People are always looking for the perfect fix to keeping your humidor at the right humidity without fluctuation. Some of us use Heartfelt beads and distilled water. Some of use Xikar solution. Some of us use cat litter. May I offer a simpler option? Propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is used...

    Hello all. I'll start with i am still pretty new to cigars. Bought my first humidor from a local cigar type store, along with some Madelaine PG Solution and a cutter. Nothing fancy. Total bill was less than 80 bucks as i recall. My question is this solution i bought says on the bottle that its...

    So today I was thinking about cigars and what not, when it occurred to me how many people in the summer suffer from temp problems. Whether it be the A/c goes out, or its just too damn hot even with it on. That led me to think of ways to fix this possibly. Here's what I came up with. I...

    Hello All! Has anyone used Xikar solution? Does it work as it claims to regulate to 70% without any hassle? The reason I ask is because I recently received a small 20 ct. desktop humidor with a bottle of Xikar solution as a gift. The hydrometer cannot be removed to be salt tested. I filled...

    I have been watching someone,and after careful intel gathering and recon I have concluded that this person needs to be a hit in the worst way. It won't be a 6.5 mm ball round from some grunt stick,it won't even be a .50 cal shot from the trusty M-82/A3 sniper rifle.Nope,this is gonna be a full...

    Can I just fill the standard green sponge humidifier with distilled water or will I get mold or something without the solution?
  14. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    Been trying to find one or two and they all seem to come with a scented fluid? Do they make a plain-jane one that is just a fan? They seem quite pricey for a product that (if memory serves) sold for about $5 Do they switch on and off on their own to prolong batt. life? How long do they last on...

I don't think mine is leaking, but i want to be safe, not sorry!!! Well, i COULD have used acylic liquid bead seamer to fix it but i doubted my confidence in...

    ok so about a year ago, I posted for some help in getting rid of the ash cement that formed in the bottom of my limited edition stinky ashtray, a thread that ended up with me having to lay the smackdown on my wife Kaybee for complaining about my ashtray... I had finally SCRUBBED the thing...

    After refilling my humidifier with activation solution, I discovered it was cracked and leaking. Got the first shelf of my humidor damp. About 10 decent cigars got a little wet on the bottom of them. They all dried within 24 hours. I've also replaced the humidifier. My question is, will...

    I always use the Glycol solution for my humidifier. I just got my new humidor yesterday and am seasoning it, and put distilled water in the humidifier. Anyone choose to not use the solution? Is there any benefit to the water? I'm at 62% rh right now, should be good by tomorrow.

    For some time now I've realized that I need better storage. My humidor is MAXED out, and I'm also using my travel humi a bit. The method I had always had in mind-was the coolidor. Problem being, our RV can be tough to keep cool when we are in warm regions. From this site, I started learning...
