Boveda says it's "The world's first 2-way humidity control" system. So here's my question.
When the Boveda Humidipak has given up some of it's moisture to the humidor, can you replace it with fresh Humidipaks and place those "used" humidipaks in a container with a bowl of distilled water to allow the used humidipak to re-absorb moisture so you can use it all over again?
It seems that physical science would indicate this can be done, since it's a 2-way system. In fact, I actually placed a used Boveda humidipak right into distilled water, and left it there for a few days.
It seemed to re-absorb the water, and once removed from the water for several hours, the feel of the paper coating of the humidipak felt and looked the same as a new one.
I've left the re-used humidipak in a ziplock bag now for a month with a calibrated hydrometer, and it seems to be working perfectly.
Any thoughts or comments?
