Mold on the Cigar
I have a friend who found mold on one of his cigars. It's not on the humi or any of the other cigars, at least as far as he can tell. First, can this particular cigar be saved? Second, should he toss the ones that the molded cigar was resting on? Again, there's no mold on the humi itself, what else should he do / be aware of? Thanks
Mix a little big of white vinegar with distilled water and gently wipe down the humidor with it (DO NOT SOAK). The vinegar solution will kill the spores in the humi. Then, put some old newspaper in and keep the lid open so that it airs out for a day (or until it stops smelling of vinegar, whichever takes longer). After that, season the humidor again and make sure he uses a gel or bead humidifier if he isn't already as the green sponge humidifiers are mold and fungus magnets. He would do best to keep it as close as possible to 70 Fahrenheit and 65 to 70 rh.
I had some mold issues a while back, it can suck, but if you do this, all isn't lost.
