    i found this with a quick google search.

    "If your humidor definitely has genuine mold, you will need to remove all your cigars and carefully brush out the mold. Wipe the humidor down thoroughly with a tiny bit of isopropyl alcohol. (Don't use too much as the alcohol can ruin your humidor but in a situation like this, you need to clean your humidor thoroughly and ensure that it's free of mold particles which is why alcohol is necessary.) Replace or disinfect your humidifiers thoroughly and let your humidor sit for a week with a fully charged humidifier. After that, check if mold has come back. If mold has returned, repeat the cleaning process. If there's no mold, you can safely return all the uninfected cigars back to the humidor."

    Crap! I hate to hear that from you man. There are some old threads on this subject and if I'm not mistaken some guys swear by vinegar. They say it does the job and the smell evaporates. I'll see if I can find the old thread

    I can't find the exact thread but I did see one suggestion of a 50/50 solution of distilled water and white wine vinegar. Then you let it air out until everything dries and the vinegar smell goes away.

    Seriously though, hope you can get it fixed up and back to being able to use again.

    That sucks, went thru it a couple of years ago myself. I vacuumed out the mold and lightly wiped it down with white vinegar then rubbing alcohol then let it sit a day in the sun for the UV rays. This was the point where I decided that 70rh was a bit high.

    I made a quick joke and now it's gone.....so people are deleting responses and moderating the forum now huh?  Interesting.  Guess you can't make a joke anymore.  That in itself is going to cause problems.  

    just a comment take it for what you will.

    This thread was a double post.  Your comment was the only one on the other thread so maybe they deleted the one with less comments on it.

    AHHHH ok, call off the dogs.  I'm not mad anymore........was worried "the man" was going to start censoring us.

    FYI, most of the time moderators tend to merge threads rather than just deleting them.  It tends to fix things like this before they start.

    At least you know it can get wet. >.>


    I'd say listen to Bob. Take his advice and if it doesn't work mail him the bill. ;)

    Shit, if anyone is getting censored first, it'll fucking probably be me.
