Cigar.com Shipping Bags

Hi, just received 15 cigars in 3 bags with the Humicare pillows. I don't have a humidor yet, I'm a newbie! I plan on smoking these in the next 2-3 weeks. How long could I keep them in the plastic cigar.com bags? And 13/15 are in cellophane, remove it? I read up on mold, don't want that to happen! Thank you, Todd.

    As long as you can keep them at an RH of no less then 65% and no more than 75% max then you will be fine. The pillows will help.
    Do you have a hygrometer to check RH?
    Also placing the bags into a Tupperware type container will suffice until you get a humi.

    I think you'll be fine for 2-3 weeks with the pillows in the bags. Cell on or off is just a matter of personal preference. Welcome aboard.

    id take all the cigars, put them in one large tupperware with one pillow. those pillows are great for when they are in an environment that is sucking all the moisture out, but if they are just sitting on your desk in a normal home environment the pillows are too moist.
