In Response To: Water mark on wood humidor (Andrew Comrie-Picard)

If the wood is lighter or bleached then I doubt that moisture is trapped in the wood.....more likely the wet ashtray removed the thin shellac or wax finish that was on it, and you will need to restore that finish. Take a cloth dampened with alcohol....DAMPENED...not dripping wet and evenly wipe, not rub over the surface...does the color return? If so then it will need a reaplication of finish...any idea what type of wood? Let us know and we will guide you further...
