|Cleaning Instruction for Prometheus Humidors
In order to clean the outside surface of the Prometheus Humidors, please use clean cotton towel and rubbing alcohol. First, remove any dust on your humidor gently so that the surface will not get scratched. After this, wet your towel with rubbing alcohol, and wipe the outside surface gently to remove finger prints or any other stain.
In order to clean the inside veneer, use fine sandpaper to remove any stain. Please make sure to sand in the direction of the wood grain. Sanding against the grain leaves scratches.
How to Use Prometheus Optima Travel Humidifier and Humidify Prometheus Travel Humidors
A) Prometheus Optima Travel Humidifier has been pretreated with our Special Care Solution. Do not open the sealed plastic bag until they are ready to be used. When you are ready to humidify your travel humidor, open the sealed plastic bag and apply distilled water to Prometheus Optima Travel Humidifier by pouring distilled water through the front side. Or, you can pour distilled water in a container and soak the Optima Travel Humidifier. We recommend soaking the Optima Travel Humidifier in the container, which saves the usage of distilled water and is also more effective in applying distilled water. After shaking it off, wipe off the excess water with paper towel, and attach the Optima Travel Humidifier to the magnet, which is preinstalled on your travel humidor.
B) If you are setting up your Prometheus Travel Humidor for the first time, you can wet paper towel with distilled water and tap it gently against the inside veneer of your Prometheus Travel Humidor. The inside veneer will soak up distilled water, and this will help your Prometheus Travel Humidor to create the ideal humidity level quicker. CAUTION: DO NOT OVERSOAK THE INSIDE VENEER WITH DISTILLED WATER, THIS WILL MAKE YOUR TRAVEL HUMIDOR LID TO WARP.
C) Monitor the humidity level daily. The humidity level should go up to 70% within 5 days.
D) Once the humidity reaches 70%, you can put your cigars in the humidor. For any reason, if you are not going to use your travel humidor for a period of time, keep your Prometheus Optima Travel Humidifier in a zip lock bag. Otherwise, the inside foam will dry up and not soak up distilled water effectively.
E) Please check the humidity level and your priceless cigar collection in your humidor regularly. If the humidity drops below 68%, apply distilled water to Prometheus Optima Humidifier. We recommend applying distilled water to the Optima humidifier once a month.
F) Once every six months, apply Prometheus Special Care Solution (Prometheus SCS) to the Optima Travel Humidifier so that it can continuously generate humidity effectively.
