Does orange peel make a good humidifier?    18:34 on Thursday, October 15, 2009 Vote for this post Vote against this post 0 votes

Hello all,
As you know winter is on it's way (we already got almost 3 inches of snow yesterday, and possibly more is on the way ) and I have been thinking about my new oboe. I need something to use as a humidifier in my case, and I have heard of some people using orange peel. Are there any risks to this (will it damage the wood or silver plating)? Or is it better just to buy a humidifier?

Thanks,
Abigail

My friends use "Dampit". $12 to save your instrument from cracking. I wouldn't waste my time figuring if orange peel or apples wre better or at what humidity they work at. $12 for a Dampit.
Here's a link. Dampit has been making these humidfiers since 1966.
