"Last year we purchased an Astro orange wax yellow liquid bottle from Mathmos. Wax started sticking on the first run, it continued to stick after each run. So I held the bottle under the hot water tap to acclimatise the liquid ready for a stint in a…"

"Yeah, I think you're probably close to the mark WRT the quality of glasses.  I have a giant blue milagro tequila bottle that I have been trying to make into a lamp for a while now, and I have done the same thing- acids, gasoline, all sorts…"

Water bath treatment to remove wax build up on glass

Hey everyone, so I watched a Mathmos documentary, and they showed a part of the manufacturing process after everything was bottled up where they submerge the bottled in hot water to separate the liquids and remove wax sticking from the glass. So I have a bottle that has this issue, and I  was wondering if anyone knew the temperature they heated the bottles up in that water treatment process.See More
