Propylene glycol is a colorless innocuous liquid
that has two favourable characteristics for the use in humidors. First of all the formation of mold as well as bacteria is
actively prevented. Secondly, propylene glycol forms a thin layer on the surface of the humidifier, which
absorbs humidity at humidity levels of over 70% humidity and which supplies humidity at humidity of less than 70%. This way the humidifier becomes a self-adjusting humidifier and will automatically stabilize the humidity level at an optimum level of approx. 70%.
As distilled water evaporates substantially faster than the propylene glycol
part, the humidor should be refilled exclusively with distilled water.
This special propylene glycol solution should only be applied when
setting up your new humidor or when the humidity level in
the humidor suddenly drops. Depending on the outside temperature this
is usually once every 3-6 months.
Under no circumstances should the solution be
used more frequently and never exclusively. If you
do, the humidifier will become saturated with
propylene glycol solution and will not be able to absorb
more water and thus the humidifier becomes useless.
