Question: how to moisten tobacco?

Brian writes: I am in need of a little bit of advice. I roll my own these days, being the only way I can afford to keep smoking, but the tobacco is getting very dry. What can I use to moisten it? I have tried a small piece of potato skin but maybe I used too much, it was then too wet. Any ideas/suggestions very much appreciated.

I heard that a lettuce leaf is a good way to keep the tabacco moist.

I do not suggest using plants for this moistening. They leave odors and taste. Instead get one of those fibre felt wipe cloths, and scissor off a corner. Dip in water and squeeze so that it is only moist. Put this little miniature cloth into the pouch of tobacco. Leave until the tobacco is moist.

My solution to this problem is to briefly (5 seconds) steam the tobacco over a boiling kettle spout. It's very quick, but very easy to overmoisten.
