    I totally F.U. guys, putting a desiccant in the oven at 250 for 20-30 min. will not reconstitute them back to 62%. It will completely dry them out to a 0% humidity. I used to do that with a desiccant that I used to dry out mushrooms that I grew, you don’t want any moisture in that desiccant. Sorry for the misinformation. I’d agree with you, throw out the old ones and buy new ones.

    Why mess with distilled water? Putting them in a room with a high RH will do the exact same thing.
    You may be right about the trouble aspect, but in theory distilled water and wet weed will end up with the same end result. So tampering doesn’t really come to mind.
    Good idea, let’s see if this “Any reason return” policy really holds any water.

    I'd say putting them in a jar of distilled water is definite tampering outside the realm of what they are made for. As for putting them in a jar of "wet weed," you're just asking for trouble!!!!!


    Why don't you try sending back some dry ones and see if they replace them? ;-}

    2 thoughts come to mind. If putting them in a high humidity environment is tampering, then wouldn’t jarring them up with wet weed be considered tampering in this case?
    Also, there was no disclaimer on the website that mentions anything about that. It literally says “any reason”.

    I wouldn't think that the guarantee would apply if you tamper with the packet.

    Their website says any reason return it for a full refund. Seems like the individual you spoke with contradicted the. Company mission statement. They don’t guarantee if you recharge. Just saying..their website tells a different story. That’s all.

    Toker, I don't understand what you're saying: they don't last for years; it's not the nature of the product. While the Boveda pack is fresh, it maintains the RH.

    That’s not what it says on their website. 100% guarantee, any reason!. Seems like lack of accuracy is covered under their return policy. Here is a copy and paste. Not like what the staff member is saying above.
    Our mission is clear: We protect, preserve, and optimize moisture sensitive products. If you’re not 100% satisfied with Boveda, return it for a full refund. Any reason. Guaranteed.

    I wrote again to Boveda, and here's their response.

    We do not recommend 'recharging' Boveda packs.
    We are aware that people choose to recharge/rehydrate their Boveda packs. When a pack is recharged, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, amount of solution in the pack and the quality of the solution We do not guarantee packs that have been recharged.
    Our packs are manufactured to the highest standards and each solution is checked and measured for accurate RH and total grams prior to packaging.


    I keep my packs sealed in a plastic bag inside a glass jar, and they last a good long time. When they get grainy, I toss them.

    Great info! Great idea to check results with the RH meter.
    Also good to note...A company telling me to discard and buy more of their products should be approached with the same amount of caution.

    Just check the RH in a jar afterwards; if it works, let me know!! ;-}

    If I worked for Bovida I’d tell you to buy new ones too.

    I wrote to Boveda to see whether the pacs can be re-used, and they told me No, they can't. Once they dry out, they don't go back to 62%. I have seen all sorts of claims that you can do this or do that to refresh them, but you'd better check the RH in a jar with a refreshed Bov. pack first. I don't reuse them; I toss them.

    Yes reuse them I just rehydrates mine. There are a lot of videos on YouTube on how to do it. I watched a lot and didn’t see the one of the oven someone posted here, either way there seems to be a lot of ways to doit pick one and keep on curing..

    Amazon is your friend when it comes to many things like this. I am all for supporting local business, but when such overcharge as this happens, I just can't do it.
