How would 70% SLES compare to MT surfactant in terms of the amount I have to use? I know the amount approximately to aim for of MT surf in a grande, but I ran out and bought some 70% SLES and I'm trying to gauge how much of it to add in it's place.Tonight I'm going to experiment adding about the same amount, but I'd like some input in case this fails, and I'll update if it does work.Continue
Hey all, hope everyone is well, work has been keeping me quite busy so haven't been around as often as I would like.See photos below, found this at a thrift store and knew it wasn't on the new side due to the glitter size and shape/style, etc. I could be wrong though hahaha.It's hard to see in the photos but the glitter is perfectly square and ultra silver and reflective. Is this what is called confeti glitter? The glitter is in perfect shape, no see through pieces and or fading etc.The fluid…Continue
To make a long stupid story short - a little bit of water got mixed with my pink confetti gemlite fluid and now the flakes are just sitting on the top with no flow.What are my options here?I will now go sulk in the corner :-(Continue
I've done successful gookits on a couple grande globes but I'm running into a problem with the rubber stopper on the top getting sucked into the lamp. One time it happened a week after I finished the lamp after it had cooled, and more recently I had it happen to my other lamp a few weeks after finishing it and it happened while the lamp was running, so it causes significantly more of a problem because now I have to redo the lamp to get the rubber stopper out of the wax.Has anyone else had this…Continue

I've been lavaless for about 30 years, and I recently had a relapse. I fell off the wagon hard. Originally I just had the one Lava Lamp, a 17in Gold Century in blue/white. I got it when I went away to college, and really the reason I only had one was because I lived in a really small space and I didn't have room for more than just the one. Then I graduated and had to become an adult and put my toys away. I live in a much bigger space now, and while cleaning out my closets I found the old lava…Continue
I've seen a couple requests for dimensions. While I'm not sure what good it will do, except maybe in making new bases or caps or maybe a crochet lava cozy I went ahead an measured my two larger lamps. I'll probably get around doing the smaller ones later. The bottle measurement does not include the inner cap nipple which adds an inch or so to the height of the bottle. My 16in Schylling is almost the same size as my Aristocrat.…Continue
.saw this lamp on eBay, I was under the impression that the Carlisle only came in three colors with a gold base. ive seen wizard lamps with similar color schemes but never a Carlisle. Was thinking it was custom painted but there are 2 for sale on…Continue
