old beads not working anymore?
Hello cigar.com forum! good to see my old stomping grounds is still here. havent been active in 15 years I suppose, still smoking just not as much of a hobby anymore. got a problem!!! I havent kept a hygrometer in my humidor for a long time since I started using beads, they were always rock solid. I recently questioned a hygrometer I use to measure my room humidity, so I thought, ill put it in my humidor! I know for a fact its 67%. I put it in and it reads about 50!! I got my beads soaked real good and didnt open it for a week. still 50, still my beads are wet.. so I bought a new hygrometer and put it in my humidor. it reads 50%.... ****! any one had their beads go bad? these are from heartfelt maaaaaany years ago. I only ever put distilled in them.
