    I let the humidity test run 10 1/2 hours and it is reading 72%.
    Should I wait any longer?
    The 'net says 6+.

    Bubbles. if it were me, I'd open the lid and let moisture out for a minute. Then put the lid back on and see where the humidity settles. That's what I have to do to mine, after washing a cleaning it seems some moisture gets retained.
