"Seriously, I hate cloudy lamps too. Just used tap water and a litte sea salt in mine and it's remained crystal clear ever since. May be worth a try! Cheers :)"

"I'll stick with propylene glycol,.. thanks Its specific gravity doesn't have such mood swings with temperature varinces and its non-toxic"

Galaxy Gloo replied to Galaxy Gloo's discussion I Destroyed My Carlisle
"Yes- I know that Ethylene Glycol is the main ingredient in antifreeze and that it has also been used to adjust the specific gravity in lava lamps. I find that it works better than Proplylene for lamps with wax from 60s/70s. I've had pretty good…"

"Ethelyene is used as an automotive antifreeze and toxic. Propylene is the one historically used for adjusting the specific gravity and is non-toxic. That is the first time I've ever heard of it being used in that manner"

"Thanks Mark! I appreciate that and will give it a whirl. I've fixed a Century with dH2o, ethylene glycol, and pure glycerin last week. So I'm going to see what happens to it after running it for a month or so before trying to do the same…"

"Thanks guys! Makes me feel a little better! I'm still digging through discussions regarding the original recipe for liquid for 1970s lamps - and the info is kind of all over the map. If anyone has suggestions- please share!"

"As Jonny said, we've all been there before! To be fair though, there's nothing worse than a slightly cloudy lamp (for me anyway), so it probably needed a refill. The wax should be fine, just start again with the fluid."

I Destroyed My Carlisle

Greetings!This is my first post and I thought I should introduce myself. I’m Robert and I live in San Francisco. I joined shortly after I destroyed one of my prized possessions- The Carlisle 300 lava lamp that my mom gave me in 1976. Ever hear that old expression “leave well alone”? Well- I didn’t leave well enough alone and tried to fix what wasn’t really broken. The liquid in said lamp had gotten a bit yellowish over the years (rightfully so)- but was still pretty clear and not cloudy. The…See More
