I've been collecting vintage pipe tobaco humidors,not just for looks, I intend to use then too.

I have a question about the moisturizing discs. How are they used? I'm assuming you soak them in water, but for how long? And distilled versus tap water?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!

I've never used them much, but I think the idea is to keep them constantly moist. Probably need to add a few drops to it once every week or two.

Distilled is probably best, but I bet tap water wouldnt ruin anythin.

Pipe tobacco doesn't really need to be constantly humidified as long as you've got a good seal on the container. It's mostly useful (at least in my experience) for rehumidifying tobacco that's been in opened tins/pouches and have dried out.

Thanks Nemrod,

I'm thinking about using one of my vintage wooden humidors. It doesn't have a good seal so I was hoping the disc would compensate.
