    Surf vs clear dawn dish liquid

    Started by kero48 in General Goo. Last reply by kero48 49 minutes ago. 30 Replies

    I want to conduct an experiment.Let's say a 52oz bottle normally would take about 15-18ml of surf. How much concentrated dawn clear dish soap would that equal? Should I try 5 or so ml or would sticking to the glass stick occur?For some reason am think you would require less dish soap as opposed to surf as the surf I had from magma tower seemed quick thin compared to dish soap.Continue

    How I have fixed my bubbly lava lamp at first try (theories inside)

    Started by Ikana in Problems & Questions 8 hours ago. 0 Replies

    First I was following this guide http://oozinggoo.ning.com/forum/topics/how-to-fix-bubbly-lava-lavaIt was a success at first try. I was also little too impatient, so I did not let the globe cooled down completely, etc for example. I have this little theory popped up in my mind at some point as I've looked at coil. The coil wasn't reaching all the edge of the bottom globe. There was talk of bad coil, the wax…Continue

    Anyone re-wired a Mathomos Jet?

If I re-wire, how does the base come out? I see there are two clips…Continue

    Spoke to lava lamp today aka Schylling

    Started by kero48 in General Goo. Last reply by Jon yesterday. 32 Replies

    So I called lava lamp today to inquire about stock on the glitter grande bottles and black bases. Stock is low so I will most likely buy one.From what I gather from my brief conversation, they don't know what will and what will not be continued however, grandes in particular are up in the air and there is a chance they might not continue them. If they do, the selection will be ultra limited from what I was told.This also goes for the entire line. it seems they have their hands full trying to…Continue
