So-I suck at math.I just emptied and cleaned the glass-it only holds 2 cups of water. The goo kit includes enough to refurbish a 250 OZ lamp. 20% goo to water ratio.If my lamp holds 2 cups that is 16 oz so this means I add 1/4 cup of goo to 3 cups water right?Duh. Thanks!Continue
Hi everyone,Roughly two to three times a week my boyfriend stays over for the night, and I have a lava lamp in my bedroom (Yellow wax, orange liquid) that I like to watch while I fall asleep. Recently he's been complaining about the light, and I don't find it all that bright. I only have it running for maybe 20 minutes while in bed, and then I have my plug shut off, however I find it very relaxing and much better to fall asleep to than having a TV on.Have any of you had anyone complain about…Continue
I picked up my first "what im hoping to be early" lava lamp at auction last week. My main interests are in vintage electronics but i've always fancied owing a nice 60s lava lamp! Anyhow my husband works at a local auction and told me about a lamp they had in at his work and wondered if i would be interested in it. When I saw it I had a feeling it could be a nice early Crestworth lamp so put a absent bid on it and won it.Im pretty sure its an early one but would love to hear your opinions on it…Continue

So I came across this factoid and thought I would share and extrapolate. Based doubling the time in the attached graphic it costs about ten dollars per year to run a lava lamp daily. So that's something you can share with whoever may be concerned about wasted energy.Here's the information from the GE Reveal bulb.Lighting Facts Per BulbBrightness320 lumensEstimated…Continue
I recently bought this princess, all original. The bottle flows great but the liquid is cloudy. Unsure what to do with it yet, think the best bet is to ditch the contents and refill with mathmos stuff. Slightly nervous about breaking the glass and the actual contents inside. …Continue
Hello I'm new to this site member wise but I've been in and out of it multiple times as I love the older lava lamps and how they run and flow. I'm currently in the process of looking for a 52oz globe of the blue liquid that goes to the green wax out of the coachlite lava lamp collection. I will attach photos of what mine currently looks like and I'll also attache the color im looking for. They are screw on caps so I have a decent globe just the cap busted because I had a good friend go get it…Continue
I’m curious to discover what issues people are having with the Yellow/ Orange and the Pink / Turquoise bottles I have had 5 Y / O bottles so far and all have had sticky wax & some cloudy residue on the inside of the glass.3 T /P bottles with sticky wax and one very scratched bottle.Mathmos have been very helpful but where do you draw the line,my Y / O bottles have been back & forth for almost a year now. I can’t be that unlucky to receive so many sub standard bottles from Mathmos…Continue
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
The only thing that sucks is the cap is broken. They tried to fix it by gluing the screw on cap to the…Continue
