I am experimenting with my old humidor which i will most likely throw away.

If there is anything you have wanted to do to a humidor let me know and ill do it on your behalf.
for example i just flooded the entire humidor with boiling water let it sit for a few and emptied it out. Now i just closed it and put in a digital meter to see what the reading will be.

Somthing interesting there is a lot of air in the wood, i was surprised as to how much bubble kept coming out from the inside panel of the lid.
another thing the sides of my humidor leaks as water started to come out from the edges and the bottom.

so again if there is anything you want me to do let me know.

for example for next experiment i will pour some cheap bourbon to see what happens to the smell and flavor of the humidor, and also to kill mold in case it starts to develop because of today's experiment.

g-d bless

10 minutes in and it has gone from 62% to 88%!!!!
and of course no device in there.

I would say you could try to find a hobby.

thank you all
actually it has worked so well I am applying some of the stuff i learned from the experiment.
for example for my new humidor which has a glass top, to get a better seal i have turned it upside down and closed with the moist towel in between. Now because the small amount of wood has warped(my intention) it has the best seal. In fact its a bit too good as i have to use two hand to open it. Also when i first season the new humidor I didn't do it right because i just left a shot glass of water for three to four days. But the trick is really to make a moist towel touch the wood so it can open up its pours and take in the water. I did use distilled water.

now we can all see if tap water is really that bad fora humidor, since my old humidor was tap water.

1. Your keyboard has two shift buttons. You might try using one of them.
2. Don't forget to lick the beads.
