Seasoning Your Desktop Humidor
The process of preparing a new humidor is called "seasoning". First, fill the humidification device with either distilled water or humidor solution and install it in your humidor along with the hygrometer. Next, season your humidor, simply take a [brand new] sponge or wash cloth, and wipe down the humidor interior with DISTILLED water. Make sure the entire interior surface is moist but not soaked with water. After the humidor has been wiped down, re-moisten the sponge/cloth and leave it in the humidor on top of a sheet of plastic wrap or plastic bag (don't let the sponge come in direct contact with the cedar interior).
