The thought never has occurred to me.  But I live in a very dry climate anyway.

If I did consider using this material, I would want to look into what the panty liners contain for absorption before putting them in my violin.  Many also contain fragrances and adhesives as well.  

I am perhaps overly paranoid about what touches my violin... that's just me.

This has gone a bit off into the weeds, but I wanted to thank everyone for their responses.  And I also wanted to add that I asked Fiddlershop whether the Stretto 1010 Humidifier would fit in the case and still allow the case to close.  They kindly checked it out, and confirmed that it fits quite nicely.

Apparently, the maker of Boveda decided that if the gel can keep a humidor at 69% relative humidity, they could reformulate to keep a violin case at 49%.  Something unique is that the gel can either add or remove moisture to air to maintain a constant humidity level.  

If interested, there is a diy method of regenerating the packs on YouTube. BD3BC0B7-8DF6-4C9A-88DF-A39F17A85120.pngImage Enlarger
