Setting Up and Refilling
HumiForm Cigar Humidifiers may be filled using a funnel and measuring cup, or a squeeze bottle with 500 ml of distilled water. We recommend adding a cap-full or two of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to prevent microbial growth during months in the 70% relative humidity range. Alternatively, a 50:50 mix of Propylene Glycol and Distilled Water may also be used.
Water vapor emission is controlled by the amount of exposed filament. More filament results in more water vapor. For very low water emission, it may be necessary to place the looped ends of filament inside tee. If cigars placed into humidor are already humidified at a level higher than desired, we recommend positioning the filament at its lowest setting and propping the lid open with a coin until moisture equilibrium is achieved.

The copper stanchion and tee oxidize over time from being continuously exposed to moisture. While some customers like the resulting "patina," others may prefer to keep the copper looking new. This may be accomplished by polishing with fine steel wool.
