I noticed earlier in the thread that someone had posted about their humidor being forgotten and let the humidity drop. I am in a similar situation:
My wife bought the humidor for me for our first anniversary. It was an awesome gesture, and I truly love the woman for it. However, she bought it at a store that specializes in engraving items. Ya know, they sell everything from wrist watches to plaques. So I know it's not a "top of the line" box.
Problem is, I can not keep the humidity where I would like it. I treated it following the manufacturers instructions and the hygrometer (el cheapo to say the least) was reading 60%-70%. Cool!
gave it a week, and it dropped into the 30's and I panicked. Gave them some TLC and brought 'em back nice and slow. Again 60%-70%.
Now, I cant keep that range for more than a few days. My question is this: Is it worth it to try to rehab the box (new hygrometer etc.) and hope for the best? OR, should I look into a good humidor scrap the one I have now? I hate the thought of that, mainly because it would devastate my wife if she knew the one she got me was junk...
