I have dry environment on winter. I store my ukulele in a case with humidifier. Could ukulele absorb too much humidity with Humidifier in time and how to determine when is enough?

Regards,
Alen

Heating the house in the winter drastically dries out the air. Usually a humidifier is barely effective enough so I don't think you would have to worry about it. With an oasis it will draw the moisture it needs from it and you just need to keep refilling it as it goes dry. The only problem I have seen is a few times the humidifier was leaking into the instrument and the customer was constantly refilling it. This led over humidification and swelling of the instrument.
