Default shisha and air

i bought, from hookah-shisha.com, 3 tubs of al waha. they came in these packagings which would go inside a plastic tub. to close the tub you would just screw the cap on and off. is this plastic tub airtight or should i move them to some other containers, if so what should i move them to. thanks

Hmm just to be safe, but them in ziplock bags.

Cuz I had a tub of AW after 9 and after months of not opening it, it was super dry and it didn't make any sense cuz it was very wet and juicy when I bought it

yes always stir ur your shisha. Reason being its because all the juices leak down to the bottom...and the juices are the flav of the shisha is its what keeps it moist.

I'd say only use a skewer or a fork to mix cuz if you use your tongs and move your coals with the tongs, it'll smell burnt cuz there is shisha on the tongs :P

BTW imo, never pack a bowl with tongs. It doesn't really fluff up the tobacco and it kinda packs it down=no airflow or smoke.

I use the gald disposable tupperware trays, work wonders and let you mix the shisha around so much easier.
Pack the bowl with your fingers, it ain't gonna kill you or hurt you. lol

AW has one of the best storage containers.

AF got WAY better though, then what they were.

Only problem with AW is that you always seem to get over 6 month old shisha....

Layalina is the WORST. It looks cool to begin with... but them you get it in. It's bleeding, has a laceration, and there's no way to save it. It's probably the cheapest plastic ever too.

Ziplock them or you will have juice all over and they will dry out pretty fast.

I have noticed the AW contianers do dry out the shisha after awhile. I'm about to package mine then shove them back into the containers. They are close, but NOT quite.

I'm not sure about AW specifically, but I just use tupperware from walmart. Haven't had a problem yet.

I suggest the brand: Lock-n-Lock from wal mart. Cough up the few dollars and you won't regret it.

I zip lock everything, but Al Waha containers especially I would zip lock! or put in tupperware. The seal on the Al Waha containers is not very good, imo!
