CIGAR TIP OF THE WEEK: This week's tip may sound a little lame, but, it is a true story. I knew someone that was suffering from an old, uncared-for humidor with the possibility of a mold buildup. He asked me what to do and I told him to clean the inside of the humidor and reprime it. Well, that he did. With Lysol and some other disinfectants. Anyway, the tip this week is: DON'T DO THAT! Some water and maybe a mild, unscented soap if it is too grungy. Then, leave the lid open and let the humidor dry out and aerate.
