So, i have a quick question. Can i use water from my dehumidifier for my guitar humidifier? It's probably 15 years old, so will that be a problem? Can i boil the water if that is a problem?

shouldn't the water have evaporated after 15 years?

are you that poor you need to use old water?

it just seems really odd to me that you are taking humidity out of the air in one part of your house and then trying to stick it back in at your guitar. If your house has humidity issues enough to need a dehumidifier you probably dont need to add humidity into your guitar...

its in the basement. you think its good to have mold in your basement that could possibly damage your health/well being as opposed to paying 25 dollars to have a nice guitar?

uhhh... just don't do it. if you boil the water, you're just evaporating the water again. not to mention that boiling water only gets rid of bacteria, not minerals(which is the reason you shouldn't use tap water to begin with). it's just more pointless processes that lead to nowhere. buy some distilled water. its not that difficult...

And maybe before you do anything about adding moisture to your guitar, get a humidistat. It's a gauge for measuring humidity levels in the air. Wal-Mart has cheapo ones for like $5. Planet Waves has one specifically for guitar cases that measures temperature and humidity and records the highest and lowest readings observed and the date of those occurrences. It's a bit more at $40. Either way, you need to know what the humidity levels are in the vicinity of your guitar and then modify from there. Your goal is 45%.

how can you get rid of humidity? and this humidifier has that humidity sensing stuff. so it releases as needed.

^Cool. So just use distilled water and all will be right with the world.
