    LOL Sorry to laugh but it's funny because it happened to me too. I would have warned you had I known you were about to "charge" them. I actually assumed those jars all came pre-filled. Mine was a humi-care humidifier and I soaked it and forgot about it overnight and it swelled up the little balls so big that they burst open the housing and I had a bowl full of wet slippery gummy spheres. I still used them but I had some leftover and I put those inside a pantyhose sock, tied it off with a knot and used the sock in another humi.

    I think we have all had a oops before. I recently washed my digital hydrometer. I was moving it to a different humidor and got distracted. It ended up in the bath towels going to the washer. About an hour later my wife is laughing and said " I found your blue thingy for your cigars" What are you talking about, then I knew, it was the hydrometer.

    If you need another one, just let me know. Free of charge, of course. I have a couple that I am no longer using.
