AZTEC® CLAY MOISTENER
These Brick humidifiers
are special made and are not available anywhere else other than
the Humidor Store.
The problem we found common with most passive humidifiers is
that there is not enough evaporative surface available. If you
want to humidify, you must have a surface area that is ample
enough to make contact with as many air molecules as possible.
We manufacture these bricks in the size listed below to solve
size of the brick is: 9 1/2" x 7 3/4" x 1" thick
Not an imitation of other products currently available.
Does not deteriorate or fall apart with use compared to some
other humidifiers. The Brick Plate will keep your cigars fresh
and you can slowly restore dried out cigars to a normal state
Color coded, dark purple when wet, light in color when dry.
When saturated, the Brick Plate does not drip water after the
excess is drained off.
Why is The Brick
Plate, The Wonder Moistener?
non-electric humidifier developed in 1925 by Mortimer DocStammelman
PhD, Physical Chemistry, which has passed the test of time.
Developed specifically for tobacco products.
Automatically maintains a normal level of humidity according
to requirements of tobacco.
Consists of both organic and inorganic compounds which are inert
and cannot harm tobacco. It is odorless, dark when wet, light
in color when dry.
Can flavor tobacco by adding Rum, Brandy, Cognac, etc. to the
Recommended useful life is approximately 3-5 years.
To activate, soak moistener in clean, cold tap water, bottled
water or distilled water. Wipe dry and replace in the humidor
unit. It will not drip once excess water is drained off.
With normal use, the Brick Plate Humidifier should be moistened
once a week. Longer time periods are also possible.
Everything depends upon the nature of the tobacco (including
characteristics of the cigar filler, binder and wrapper), how
often a humidor is opened and the environment where it is kept.
1. When tobacco products are fresh, they do not demand humidification.
This is only needed when tobacco starts to dry out through normal
2. Cigars can remain fresh within a relative humidity range of
65% - 75% at normal room temperature. Everything depends upon
the specific characteristics of tobacco.
3. Forced humidification is bad and should be avoided. It can
cause cigars to burst, wrappers to loosen, blister or mold. It
takes ten days to two weeks to replace the moisture of dried
out cigars. Restoration should be a slow, gradual process.
