A good and easy Rehydrating tobacco method:

A couple of layers of paper towel, soaked with water, wrung out and placed over the top of a tupperware container. Then the lid snapped on. Re-soak paper towel when it dries out. Repeat until desired moisture level is achieved.

That rehydration method works, but I've come up with what I think is a slightly easier way.

I've always got a lot of larger tubs and jars of less expensive leaf laying around, and I tend to rotate between them. A few ounces of one, then a few of the next and so on. As you might expect, it dries to a bone eventually. So.,. I use a small dish or cup (I use the bottom half of a pack of dip) and then tear a piece of paper towel into a number of small squares (6 or 8 will do) that will sit inside the cup. Wet the squares, put them in the cup and maybe put in a just a little extra water in the cup, as well. Sit the cup right on top of the tobacco in the tub, put on the lid of the tub, and let it sit for about 24 hours. Then remove the cup, take off the top layer of tobacco (which is now moist) and put it in your daily tobacco receptacle. Put the cup back in the tub on top of the drier tobacco, and repeat the process for as many days as it takes to get the amount of leaf that you want.
