I've just done the my usual way of humidor seasoning

1 Day - gently rubbed humidor, then put 140~150 degree hot water and change every three hours.
2 Day - After 24 hours 99% of humidity should,so pull out the bowl. then put 2 boveda pack 
3 Day - 48 hours total, It should be the 69%~72%

I had no problems with my the perfection(?) of seasoning.
but still the 89% of humidity, I need to put cigar as soon as faster, this is the gift for my friends birthday and only 2 day left.

    99% humidity is not good. Hope your humidor isn't warped from the wood swelling so much.
    If you quote me do the @TX98Z28 in your text or I won't be notified of your quote, Thanks.

    Did you try leaving it open for a while?
    After seasoning two humidors, one of them 3 times, I will use nothing but the Boveda seasoning packs and time.

    I would leave the humidor open for a while to dry out.... Im with TX98Z28... I really hope the wood didn't warp inside. :( I would feel bad if it did. Let us know how it goes and hopefully it will be ready in time for your friends bday!

    Hey Doc! 

    I put 150 degree water in my humidor every three hours for a whole day.
