Caring for your HF Beads

My wineador arrives today (pretty excited) and already have my HF beads. So figured I'd do some reading up on maintaining them. Came across this video from CO and was curious what you folks thought of it. (No, I am not considering doing this, just find it odd his recommendation goes against everything I've read on HF beads)

i wasnt a fan of Brain myself and the reason behind was partially this video of him giving false info. first off Heartfelt beads are TWO way humidty control so some of the beads have to remain dry to absorb humidity and second off from what i have read direct exposure to water can cause the beads to crack split and over time become nothing.

I have lots of beads, let's just leave it at that...ha.
And over the years of using syringes, dunking them, etc I have found a couple show squirts of DW with a small squirt bottle seems to make them, and conversely my sticks the most happy.
It's easy, and works like a charm.
As for CO, congrats for his successes, but that doesn't make him perfect, take what works and leave the rest IMO.
Hell, I just figured out NC meant non Cuban, lol, always just assumed it referred to Nicaraguan sticks, and I've been smoking cigars for 20 plus years.
Nobody's perfect, and that video shows Bryan fits in that category as well.
Congrats on the new cigar hardware! :-)

Without direct linking to another site check out canada humidor .com and search "beads", the first result should be the humidity stabilization beads. I got these because they can be "trained to your desired humidity", 66%-67% seems to be my preferred sweet spot, but if I go with a 65% smoking rh at some point down the road, I'll opt for the heartfelt beads, they just have a better known reputation.
