When do you use a 60 gram Boveda? Whenever it fits in your storage container. Boveda will never humidify beyond the RH on the pack, so there’s no such thing as “too much”. You want to think in terms of using at least the minimum because the more you use, the more efficient Boveda works and the longer they last. 60 gram Boveda are commonly used in mason jars and large bags. They can last 6+ months depending on how often the container is opened, you’ll know it’s time to replace when the entire Boveda begins turning hard.
Each Boveda consists of a specially prepared saturated solution of pure water and natural salt. This saturated solution is contained within a water-vapor permeable “reverse osmosis” membrane. Within a closed desktop humidor Boveda maintains a predetermined level of (RH) by releasing or absorbing purified water-vapor, as needed, through the membrane.
Boveda provides the cleanest and most purified humidity of all other products available on the market today.
Why Boveda is Different
All humidification products are not created equal, and we know it’s difficult to cut through all of the misinformation out there. Boveda is different from the rest because it covers all of your bases. Need more humidity? Less? Are you just lazy and don’t want to refill or activate anything? Or maybe you want to use what the pros are using. No matter your humidity needs, Boveda can help. Below are some simple points which we believe will help consumers (and retailers) understand the important differences between the various types of humidification on the market.
Note: Do not mix Boveda RH levels within the same container, and do not use Boveda in the same container with other humidification products. They will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of the Boveda.
