Hi everyone! I just picked up a Whynter CHC-251S (400CT) and will attempt to season it before the weather gets hot and my house temperature rises as I don't feel the AC running all day. Instead of wiping down the shelves and drawers with DW, I'm thinking to use some shot glasses and a few sponges to help the seasoning process. Ive thought about using the spray method instead of direct wiping but probably won't bother. Also, I don't have 84% seasoning packs and will not be purchasing them just for this. However, I do have lots of various boveda packs of all RHs but will use my 320g and 60g 65% packs once it has stabilized. I searched the site but couldn't fine the answer so I thought here would be a great place to ask. With regards to seasoning the cigar cooler, the shelves and drawers, should I plug it in so it seasons at the desired temperature or should I only turn it off after? Also, I don't smell any plastic what so ever but should I still wipe it down with DW and baking soda? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have 3 humidors (2 Havana foot lockers and 1 desk top humidor) each about half full with Cuban cigars. I'm in NJ and of course part of my problem is the dry weather, but my humidors won't keep Rh for the life of me. They are running 56-59. I have Heartfelt beads in each of them, and a few small Boveda bags. I believe I have enough Heartfelt beads in each based on measurements. I conditioned each humidor when I got them. I think I have a bad seal on each. I tried the dollar bill test and each of the Havana foot lockers were a little loose. Was thinking about putting 1/8th inch weather sealing on each, but afraid the humidors won't close then. Any thoughts? Checked my digital hygrometers also. Thanks, -Vinny
