How do you measure the humidity in a humidor?
Similarly, you may ask, how do I adjust the humidity in my humidor?
How to Increase the Humidity of a Humidor
- Dampen a paper towel in distilled water and wipe the inside walls of your humidor when you first set it up.
- Close the lid of the humidor securely each time you insert or remove a cigar.
- Refresh the humidity regulator in your humidor at least twice in the first month you use it.
Beside above, is 72 humidity too high for cigars? We recommend the 72%RH as your first Boveda in your wooden humidor after seasoning. 75%: Designed for your inexpensive or glass top humidors. The 75% accommodates a high amount of moisture loss allowing the humidor to maintain a high 60s RH level. 84%: Designed ONLY for seasoning a wood humidor WITHOUT cigars in it.
Just so, is 75 humidity too high for cigars?
High humidity is of greater concern than low for a few reasons: High humidity can cause some cigars to split. Most won't, but it does happen. Cigar won't burn or draw as well at high humidity, i.e. a cigar stored at 65%RH will typically smoke great, while one at 75% is likely to be tight and burn unevenly.
What should a humidor hygrometer read?
Don't be alarmed if your hygrometer reads 80-85 percent humidity. Humidity should normally be only 70 percent, but during the seasoning process, it's normal for it to be higher. After another 24 hours, check the humidity level again. It should be close to 70 percent.
