How To: Humidify Your Badminton Shuttles

Hey guys welcome back to Yumotube. This is Tommy, and I’m Julia. In this video, we’ll show you how you can maximize the durability of your shuttles. A lot of the times when you purchase a new tube of shuttles, the humidity inside the tube is very low which means that the shuttles are usually very dry and brittle. To solve this you can increase the humidity of the shuttles by introducing moisture. This will reduce the chance of the feathers breaking prematurely We will be showing you different ways to humidify your feather shuttles so if you live in a dry environment This can be really effective as long as you do it correctly So how do you humidify your shuttles? Well there are specialized steamers for shuttles in the market But you can use any kind of apparatus at home that produces steam it’s the same thing. So kind of like a kettle or a pot of boiling water. Yeah, that’s right So first off you want to take off the two caps off the end of the tube Next you want to place the tube over the steam with the cork side up The steaming process should take around 30 seconds and no longer than one minute The steaming process is complete once steam has risen out of the top end of the tube or one minute has passed You don’t want to over steam the shuttles as it would slow the flight down Unfortunately we couldn’t really capture the steam on camera, but you get the point The second method is to take the shuttles out and leave them on a countertop while you take a hot shower You want to make sure all the windows and doors are closed so that the steam can accumulate inside the bathroom. It’s better to do this during the winter times when it’s a lot colder and not during the summer when it’s really hot This method is the easiest to do since you don’t need any special equipment and most people take a shower every day or at least most people do Once you are done with your shower. You can just put the shuttles back into the tube and you’re good to go The last method is to use a Humidome We just got this product into Yumo so it’s fairly brand new in the market It’s a device that was designed and manufactured in Finland. So it contains beads inside that maintain a high level of humidity after submerging it in water Humidome replaces the cap on one end of the tube and functions to maintain the humidity of the shuttles inside the tube So what you want to do is get a container of water that basically can fit the
Humidome inside. All you have to do is turn it upside down with the hole facing up and submerge And that’s it So you want to keep it in there for at least four hours so that the beads can grow. And then once every couple of months when the beads have shrunk you repeat the process so that the beads can reabsorb the water to retain moisture. If you find that the beads aren’t basically reabsorbing the water again, they do provide three sets of extra beads They found that there is this problem where if the beads aren’t able to refill and reabsorb the water It’s likely because you’re using hard water that’s high in minerals such as calcium and magnesium So you want to just make sure that you’re using clean distilled water So after you’ve soaked it in water for at least four hours the beads will enlarge and that’s what it looks like Next all you want to do is just take off the bottom cap of the tube Have the cork facing up And stick it in So that’ll just retain the moisture inside the tube and that’s all you have to do So that’s about it for this video.

  4. Nice tricks!!??… How long to leave the Humidome in the the shuttle box ? And does the other end need to be capped or uncapped?


  6. Do you steam the shuttles just before play or when you buy them? Meaning, once steams, do they retain the humidity for a period of time? Thanks

  7. Try SAVE-BIRDIE instead. Here you only need 10 seconds to fill up with shuttlecocks when you get home from badminton and your shuttlecocks last 2-3 times as long in play.
    It is scientifically proven that the shuttlecocks need 10 days to absorb moisture. With SAVE BIRDIE you can also see how many schuttlecocks you have left in the tube.

  8. First Question: Why Is Julia So Hot???
    Second Question: What Is Julias Social Media Accounts?

  9. Why all this hassle when you can moisten your shuttlecocks in a SAVE-BIRDIE.COM humidity tube.
