How to Moisturize Dried Tobacco

If you roll your own cigarettes or smoke a pipe, you know that the tobacco tends to start drying from moment you open your bag. Dried tobacco is not as pleasant to smoke because it burns quickly and harshly. A couple of tricks can help you to include moisture and keep your tobacco saturated for a pleasurable smoke each time

Things You’ll Need

  • Glass jar
  • Damp cloth
  • Hydration disk
  • Apple slice
  • Orange peel
  1. Spot dried tobacco in a vessel or glass container and spread the top with a damp fabric. Verify that the fabric is not all that wet that water drops into the tobacco. Set the tobacco in a warm, dim area and check every few hours.
  2. Buy a hydration plate at your nearby pipe and tobacco store. These little clay circles can be absorbed water and afterward kept with your tobacco to both saturate dried tobacco and hold the dampness of new tobacco. Check your plate every few days.
  3. Cut a slice of apple and spot it into your tobacco bag. Place the dried tobacco and apple in the fridge for around 24 hours to saturate the tobacco leaves. Expel the apple from the bag and enjoy a new smoke.
  4. Keep a cut of orange peel in your bag of tobacco at all times to help hold the natural dampness. Not just does orange peel help to keep the tobacco fresh, it makes it have a decent flavor. Do not forget to change the peel every other day or so in to prevent mold.
