How do I calibrate my hygrometer?

In this step by step video, we show you exactly how to calibrate your hygrometer. This is one of the most important parts of caring and preserving. How would you know if your product is at the appropriate RH level if your hygrometer isn’t working correctly?

Using the Boveda One-Step Calibration Kit:

  1. Simply place your hygrometer inside the bag and completely re-close the zipper.
  2. Allow the Calibration Kit to sit for a minimum of 24 hours at room temperature, 65 to 75°F
  3. The hygrometer should read the RH% level stated on the Calibration Kit. If Not, note the difference for the future readings or adjust* your hygrometer if applicable.

*Note: If you choose to adjust your hygrometer you must place it back into the Calibration Kit for a minimum of 24 hours to see if the adjustment was accurate.
