Here are some ways on how to preserve your cigars. Have a look at it...



Seal well:

Humidors are ideal to store cigars, but if you do not have one, make sure that you keep them in a sealed plastic bag. Excess air or moisture can spoil your cigar.



Save from sun:

Avoid placing your cigars in direct sunlight. If the temperature and humidity get too high, cigars can develop a potentially damaging fungus or mold. Ideal conditions are 70°F (21°C) and 70% humidity.



Do not freeze:

Do not keep your cigars in the refrigerator as it will suck out the moisture content of your sticks.



Position wise:

Place your cigars in a horizontal fashion. This ensures minimum air damage.



Package well:

Remove the tubes before placing the cigars in the humidor. The tubes are ideal for protecting cigars when you travel, be it in your pocket, briefcase or luggage.
