How long do Ccom humidity pillows last?

xmacroxmacro Posts: 3,402
Well, I just figured out today that I'm in the enviable position of having too many cigars and not enough humidor space. I've got another humidor coming, but it won't be here for 3 or 4 weeks, and in the meantime, I'm giving up cigars and alcohol for Lent, which means as my orders roll in, the "problem" (if you can call it that) is only going to get worse.

So the question is, will my cigars be ok for 4 weeks in the Ccom plastic bags with the Ccom humidity pillow, or should I be doing something else, like a tupperdor?

    I just died a little on the inside.

    The bags would be ok, but tupperware is so cheap. If I were you, I'd grab a good sized tupperware container and store them in there. It will seal better than plastic bags and be easier to open up and find what you want. Or stare at them and drool from now until Easter.

    You think the humidity packs will keep work the entire 4 weeks in the tupperware? I have tupperware overflowing in some of my kitchen cabinets, but I'm not sure the humidity pillows will hold out that long

    Define too many cigars. I don't think its possible. I would say good luck, but you're already as lucky as a dog with two d---s.

    I believe they will last about a month or so. But all you have to do is soak it in distilled water to recharge it.

    ah, thanks :D
  • I have some sealed in the bags that are still moist after 4 months.

    Amen, Father Sureto lose... That is way more than anyone one should be expected to give up. What were you thinking !! Renegotiate your contract before it's too late. You still have a few hours.

    I had all of my cigars in a ccom bag with a pillow while I was waiting for my humi. They were in there for over a month and they are still fantastic !

    I tried the no cigars or alcohol last year for lent. Needless to say I gave it much thought about 20 days into it, and WWJD popped into my head. After deliberation upon such a question as WWJD? I knew. JWDSASAC (Jesus would drink scotch and smoke a cigar) so I did.

    True story, these pillows have been around for a decade. You can keep recharging them. I asked the guy who invented them once how many times you can recharge them and he pulled one out of his suitcase to show me. It was the first one he ever made and it had been going for 10 years and he kept refilling it. He said "I have no idea because the first one is still going strong". Had to laugh. Good guy. His name was Bob and unfortunately, he lost a battle to cancer a few years ago.

    I have a few that have been in active duty for a few years now. They actually have a woody, tobacco smell to them and are stained as well. I don't know how the pillow color changed, but it has.

    In either tupperware or a ziplock bag, Ive never had one last less than 6 weeks before needing to be re-soaked in distilled water.

    Good luck with Lent... I will think of you while Im puffin... :-)
