About 24 hours. If you have a very big lump of hard brown sugar, break it up as best you can, and add it to your SugarBaby Brown Sugar Saver in small amounts, as this will result in more efficient softening.

It depends on the type of brown sugar you have in the SugarBaby Saver, the amount of sugar and how often you open the lid. Generally speaking, the sugar should stay moist and useable for four to five months with little effort. Every 6-8 weeks is sufficient if you are not using your SugarBaby saver often. More use releases the humidity quicker so the sponge will need to be remoistened more often. The sponge is meant to dry out so that the sugar remains soft. Check the sponge periodically to see if it needs to be remoistened. The sponge should never be dripping wet or sopping.

This can happen if you didn’t squeeze all the excess moisture out of the sponge before putting it in the humidor lid. But don’t worry! Just open your SugarBaby Brown Sugar Saver, stir the brown sugar and leave the lid open for a few hours, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has returned to the proper consistency. If you like, stir in some fresh brown sugar to help speed the evaporation. When you’re ready to close the SugarBaby again, be sure the sponge is simply moist, not wet or sopping.
