What to Do If Your Cigar Humidor Smells Bad

A cigar humidor is essential for preserving the flavor and quality of your cigars, but sometimes, unpleasant odors can develop inside the humidor. Whether it's due to the humidor itself or the packaging materials used during manufacturing, dealing with a bad smell can be frustrating. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to eliminate odors and ensure that your cigars remain in optimal condition. Here's what you need to know:

1. Unboxing and Preparation:
Carefully unpack your cigar humidor and remove all packing materials, including any boards inside the cabinet.

2. Gentle Cleansing:
Using a mild cleaning solution mixed with warm water, gently clean the interior of your humidor. Be sure to avoid saturating the boards, as excessive moisture can damage the wood.

3. Dry Thoroughly:
After cleaning, leave the doors of the humidor open to allow for proper ventilation and thorough drying. This step is crucial to prevent moisture buildup, which can contribute to unpleasant odors.

4. Other Deodorizing Methods:
If you still detect a plastic smell after cleaning, consider trying the following methods:

Place a dish of baking soda inside the humidor to absorb odors.
Leave crumpled newspaper inside the humidor overnight to help absorb odors.
Consider using activated charcoal to absorb odors by placing it inside the humidor.
Use a fan to blow air into the humidor for a period of time to help disperse odors.

5. Air Exchange:

Allow the humidor to run for 3-7 days after completing the above steps to facilitate proper air exchange and ventilation. This will help circulate fresh air and eliminate any lingering odors.

Regarding Cyclopentene:

You may notice a label on the back of the product indicating the use of cyclopentene. Here's what you need to know:

Cyclopentene is a foaming agent used for heat insulation during the manufacturing process. It enhances the heat insulation performance of the humidor.
The materials used in our humidors comply with international standards and are safe for human health and the environment. You can rest assured that the use of cyclopentene will not negatively impact your well-being.
By following these steps and tips, you can effectively eliminate bad odors from your cigar humidor and enjoy your cigars in a fresh and pleasant environment. Explore the range of NEEDONE branded cigar humidors to find high-quality storage solutions for your cigar collection.
