Repairing a damaged cigar with pectin

Repairing a damaged cigar with pectinHave you ever found yourself with a damaged cigar that you were just dieing to smoke? On occasion we receive cigars in the mail, or as gifts, and sometimes they get to us a little banged up. Occasionally this abuse leads to a pealing wrapper, or and in some cases, a couple of small cracks.

With a little patience and a box of pectin this problems can be quickly remedied to make that banged up cigar smokable.

What you will need:

  1. 1 Box 100% Natural Pectin (Found in the canning isle of your local grocery store)
  2. Small Container of some sorts (such as the lid to a soda bottle)
  3. Small amount of water
  4. 1 Toothpick
  5. Small amount of donor tobacco to use a patch


  1. Place a small amount of warm water into your soda bottle cap
  2. Add in a small amount of pectin and stir with toothpick
  3. Apply pectin with toothpick to both the cigar and donor tobacco
  4. Apply patch, press firmly and remove any wrinkles
  5. Allow pectin to dry for about one minute then enjoy your repaired cigar
