Sounds like you made big mistake. Tap water is a never. Distilled water is okay. Boveda Packs are your absolute best option.
Ne, silica gel samo upija vlagu ja mislim. Ove kesice što tražim regulišu vlagu. Npr ako je 70% onda će da upija vlagu ako je iznad toga, a ispušta ako je ispod toga.
Ovako nešto https://www.amazon.com/Boveda-Percent-Humidity-Control-4-Pack/dp/B004LHQEOY/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?keywords=humidification+pouch&qid=1664981766&qu=eyJxc2MiOiI0LjAzIiwicXNhIjoiMy43MSIsInFzcCI6IjMuMjUifQ%3D%3D&sr=8-2
This is from zmf as I've recently asked them this question between different woods and stab pairs:
"As far as durability, its not an issue I would worry about. All of the woods we use are plenty durable enough to withstand regular use. If you happen to live in a humid environment, we do recommend storing your headphone with Boveda humidity packet. I have linked them below for reference.
The wood used to make each cup will have a slight effect on the timbre of the headphone but does not affect the frequency response of the headphone. This means that things like decay, speed and transient attack are slightly affected by wood choice, while the frequency response attributes remain the same. Typically, we recommend you choose the wood you find the most aesthetically pleasing, as wood choice won't have a large enough effect on the headphones sound to make you like or dislike the headphone.
Thanks again, and let us know if you have any other questions."
Thank you. It was a gift for my father in law. I bought him a pack of Boveda packs. He told me that they work great.

They probably don't need to be "aired out" since nothing from W2T is going to have storage notes. Humidified storage doesn't have to be difficult to set up, though - a plastic bin with a cup of wet salt in it will do (finding a plastic bin that doesn't smell bad is the hardest part). You can also use a Ziploc bag with a Boveda pack in it. I use these for my bins (I can actually get them cheaper from a local tobacconist than from Amazon, though).
Drying out tea won't usually make it taste bad, it just won't be as good as if it were properly humidified.
How are you storing your tobacco, in the original bags? You may need to buy some dehumidifying packs.
Make sure your tobacco bag is sealed completely, and doesn't get any holes in it. (We store our prepped tobacco in a lidded 5 gallon bucket, as we have cats that love to poke holes in.. Well everything.)
Also make sure your tobacco is being stored in a dark, dry location, away from sunlight. I've never actually stored our tobacco in the fridge, but I have had to briefly place trays of tobacco in the fridge to dry it out a bit, when we accidentally over-humidified it. The fridge will dry that shit out quick!
I would definitely store your tubes in the fridge, if possible. If not, store them in large zip lock bags, with those dehumidifying packs.
With heat and humidity, time is not your friend. You need to be making your cigs as fast as humanly possible. I know it's pricey, but in February we went from a Powermatic 2 to a Powermatic 3+, and it is insane how fast you can make cigs with that thing. Not including the time it takes to prep the tobacco (removing the sticks, and stuff,) it takes us about an hour to make a carton of cigs. And that's not even trying to make them fast. That's just leisurely making cigs and watching whatever show we put on.
If you can make cigs that fast with your current machine, great. If not, I highly suggest you make the upgrade.
Make sure your finished cigs are going directly into an airtight container. My husband and I have tried all kinds of different ways to store/transport our cigs, and these containers are the best we've found so far. We have one big container (each) where we store the bulk of our cigs, and use it to refill these smaller containers that we smoke directly from during the day, and to take with us when we have to leave the house.
Lastly, you may need to buy an actual Room Dehumidifier to use while you're making cigs. Maybe try to find a small room, and plug in the dehumidifier like an hour or so before you start. And then just make and store those cigs as fast as possible.
Good luck ❤️
Hydration packs such as Boveda’s 72% packs are perfect to regulate the bud at a consistent moisture percentage where mold can’t form and the bud won’t over-hydrate either. Just put in your airtight container along with your buds and let it sit - just change them out very 3 months.
