Cigars are best stored in a humid, climate-controlled environment such as a humidor. If you don't have a humidor, your refrigerator is a great substitute. The ideal humidity level for cigar storage is 70 to 75 per cent. You can achieve a suitable humidity level using a resealable plastic storage container with a moistened sponge inside. Your cigars will stay fresh for several months if stored in this manner.

Begin with a clean, dry plastic container. Prevent bacteria and mould growth by washing and drying the container thoroughly before storing your cigars.
Moisten the sponge with distilled water. Wring out the excess moisture so that the sponge is damp, not saturated.
Place the sponge inside the plastic container.
Remove the plastic wrappers from the cigars and lay them in the plastic container.
Close the container but allow one corner of the lid to remain open. This will allow for air flow, which will prevent the interior from becoming too moist. Too much moisture can cause mould to grow.
Put the container of cigars into the vegetable crisper bin of your refrigerator. This lower area is slightly warmer and more humid than the rest of the refrigerator.
