Re-hydrating is simply a matter of adding moisture to the tobacco.
1) Use A Humidifier Disc - You can purchase one of
the coin humidifier disc from a B&M and wet it with distilled water
and put it in with the tobacco in its container.
2) Sponge Method - Get a NEW and UNUSED foam sponge
and cut a small square off of it. Dampen the piece of sponge and place
it in with the tobacco like a coin humidifier disc.
3) Towel/Paper Towel Method - Put the tobacco in a
glass bowl and take some clean paper towels or clean cloth towels and
dampen them with distilled water. You can heat the water a little bit to
get it warm or place the damp paper towel on a plate and put it in the
microwave for a few seconds, as this might help a little with this
method. Place the dampened paper towel over the bowl and very loosely
cover that with some plastic wrap and let it sit for a few hours. The
tobacco will absorb the moisture from the paper towel.
4) Spray It - Lay the tobacco out on a flat surface
like a paper plate, cookie sheet, etc. and LIGHTLY spray or ‘spritz’ the
tobacco using a CLEAN spray bottle filled with distilled water (DO NOT
use a bottle that has previously contained some type of household
cleaning agent or chemical. You can buy a new unused bottle at the
store. If you smoke cigars you might already have one that you use for
‘spritzing’ your humidifiers). You want to barely dampen the tobacco not
soak it. Carefully and gently toss it around a bit and put it back into
the storage container and after a day or so it should be rehydrated.
Remember to always use only distilled water when rehydrating tobacco.
The proper RH of pipe tobacco is only around 10-14%. Only rehydrate
tobacco if it is dry to the point of being crispy right before it gets
to the crumbling into dust stage. If it is already moist and you add
extra moisture it can start to mold. Remember that once the tobacco is
rehydrated; remove the humidity device from it so it does not get over
