My older brother likes smoking cigars. So for Christmas we are getting him a humidor with a few cigars. It came with instructions on how to prepare it to store cigars. I followed the instructions that say put a damp sponge with the humidifier in there for 12 hours, take out the sponge and then leave it for 12 hours. That's it. But on other sites it says you should do this for 2-3 days while others say a day. Has anyone ever seasoned a humidor before? I'd rather not ruin the cigars by putting them in to early.
