    Trying to crack the original formula- why was kerosene used?

    Started by Ant Bee in General Goo. Last reply by Zach May 21. 163 Replies

    In my quest to figure out exactly what the original formula is, one thing I haven't figured out is why they used Kerosene in the mixture.  It seems like it was a very small part of the mixture, something like 7% by volume.But what was the point?  Did it act as a preservative, or enhance the flow, or help to bind everything together?Speculations?Continue

    I am going to be selling two different size Pyramid style lava lamps and I wanted to see if anyone was interested in them here before I post them on eBay.  The red one is the smaller size, but it has great flow.  The purple one is the large size Pyramid and is something like 2ft tall maybe more.  I only have a few pictures of them right now, but I hope to have more soon.  If your interested please send me a private message.  Thanks for looking!…Continue

    So this morning I decided to hit up a local garage sale, and I almost passed this by thinking it was just a generic Chinese made lamp. Boy am I glad I decided to lift up the cap to double check.When I saw that old Lava Lite logo, I immediately handed them the $10 they were asking for it. Haven't had a chance to warm it up yet, but boy am I excited.Continue
