Why should I use XIKAR PG Solution
instead of distilled water or 50/50?
It is important that we
inform consumers that a 50/50 PG solution will eventually clog up a foam or
crystal humidifier - the 50% PG stays behind much longer than the 50% water.
The PG ratio in your humidifier slowly goes from 50/50 to 75/25 to near 100% PG
with each refill. Too much PG will pull all of the humidity out of the air!
(100% PG will dehumidify to nearly 0% RH).
A humidifier "clogs" as the
PG/water ratio gets too rich in PG, regardless of what material is used to hold
the solution. Green foam and crystals are only necessary to keep the solution
from sloshing around or dripping out of a humidifier that is turned upside
Consistent use of a 50/50 blend of PG/water will clog a
humidifier over time. XIKAR PG solution is blended in a proprietary ratio to
ensure the ratio of PG/water in your humidifier does not get too rich in PG.
Maintaining the right ratio of PG/water is critical-- if the mixture gets off
in either direction you are over or under humidifying your prized sticks.
Refill your humidifiers with XIKAR PG Solution every time and use a XIKAR
Hygrometer to take the guesswork out of humidification!
