Theoretically....

Here's one out of left field... some members here have suggested using baking soda to remove unwanted scents from coolidors. So what would happen if a guy, a dude, a regular joe like myself (shout out to Beetlejuice - GOOGLE IT) were to put the baking soda in the coolidor WITH the sticks? Would it have an averse affect on the cigars or not?

Also, any guesstimates on how long the baking soda would have to be in an empty cooler before the scents it was there to remove were gone?

Thanks folks! :-)

    Don't see why it couldn't work., would draw away some moisture right?. Activated charcoal could probably work to

    Well, not having tried it in the manner you're suggesting, my guess would be that if you put it in with the sticks, it would absorb that lovely tobacco scent that is so helpful in the aging/mellowing process. And in answer to your second question, a few days to a week ought to suffice to get smells out of an empty coolidor. Remember, though, opinions are like a$$holes - everybody's got one.

    +1 I would also be worried the Baking Soda would work against my humidification device.

    Don't do it with cigars. It will suck the moisture out of them. But doing it to an empty would be just fine. That's just my a$$hole. LOL
