Default A cheap and easy DIY guitar humidifier

Some folks had asked me about this so I did a quick video.

Enjoy

Thanks. I have a whole home humidifier. Not enough? Your solution is certainly cheap and simple.

I find adding some water beads to the container safely stores considerably more moisture, requiring less frequent fills. You can buy the water beads in any hobby/craft/Walmart. They cost a couple bucks for enough to fill 10 or 15 containers. The beads are designed to release moisture, as they do, they will shrink down in size to that of a bb.

Hey! Very nice, hadn't thought of that.
