    I guess the idea behind it is also to prevent crack walls from growing mould in older houses
    I have this in my residence. It sucks having the hope of humidifying the shuttlecocks while taking a shower then remembering of that dreaded ceiling bathroom fan. Haha.

    Can anyone inform us what the optimal storage conditions for shuttles are??? If they are stored optimally, would it be safe to assume that there is no need to take them into the shower, or steam over the kettle, or whatever other techniques are on offer...

    3. Sponge towel - Yes (quick and easy)
    4. Rice cooker - Nahh.. (Steam is too hot, will melt glue I think)
    5. Shower - Can't.. (Got ceiling fan)
    6. Humidifier - Still thinking (hmmmm....)

    Cheapest humidifier I can find is around $40AUD which is around $25USD.
    I checked on the Net about the "ideal" temperature and humidity level and it said to be like 25C and 50% humidity.. (Lost the link).. any ideas??

    I'll probbaly just use my old big glass fish tank, chuck in the shuttles, turn on the humidifer, cover the lid and leave it for 10 minutes, and then just turn off the humidifer while still leaving the lid close.. that should replicate a good humid climate in the fish tank.. what do you think?
    Hi there, i will share my method of humidifying the shuttles, because it is not mentioned in this thread.

    firstly, I will take all the shuttles out of the tube, then use a sprayer to spray inside the tube twice. (Pull the trigger all the way, twice, 1st spray to one side, then 2nd spray on the opposite side. Then put all the shuttles in, cover it. then put it horizontally (lying down). Do this 24-48 hours before you play with them, so it will have just the right amount of time to let the moist to evaporate it into the feathers.

    I have been doing this for at least 3 years on RSL Tourney #1 shuttles. It really shows result. Save some $$$.

    Cheers
