What materials have you used to make a homemade in-case humidifier?

I discovered what I think is a perfect piece. I used one of those little green plastic things that is used by florists to deliver a single flower. Drilled a few holes in it, slipped some foam in there, popped the rubber cap back on, and it will suspend in the soundhole between the C and E strings while in the case.

I also like Aldrine's Sith Lord Pez dispenser. I have a General Grievous and a Hello Kitty around here somewhere......

Prescription bottles with sponges cut into circles and holes drilled in each end. Most pharmacies will give them to you free. careful drilling though

I thought about prescription bottles. Also old 35mm film canisters.

That's exactly what I do. I't worked perfectly for my Kumalae in the soundhole, the whole of last winter. I don't think the Herco in the small compartment in the case is enough. I only drill holes on one "side", in a row, and slip it into the soundhole between the C and E strings; it sits at an angle with the holes away from the inside of the uke (like facing up), just in case. I use green foam intented for floral arrangements... flower holders with flower arrangement stuff.....

I use what basically is a 35mm film canister with a sponge in it. It has been a few years since I bought 35mm film, so I had to go to the craft store and buy some little containers, but they are the same size and shape as the film canisters.

PVC pipe capped on both ends with holes drilled in the tube and filled with OASIS Floral Foam. You add water to the foam and it soaks it up.

I have a humidified reed case that uses some type of large silica granuals instead of foam. You add a bit of water to the silica granuals and they soak it up.

I have lots of these little jewel boxes, just about perfect with a small sponge inside.

What sort of dimensions of PVC pipe do you use?
