My humidor came in the mail today and I am not sure on how to prep it. I would appreciate any help, thank you.

Everyone will say this is wrong. It probably is. I've prepped a couple dozen humidors, either for myself or when I build some for friends in my wood shop. I wipe the hell out of the inside with RO water on a paper towel, close, and set aside. A few hours later, repeat. Next day, repeat in the morning and evening. When that is absorbed on the third day, I put the cigars in.

I've always had them stay at the right humidity right after that.

It's wrong, yet works.

I'm with Carlos on this . . . just don't soak it. Damp, but no puddles!
