""I just tried chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite) on blue Mathmos fluid, but it turned darker and into indigo!" Well this is really good to know actually, I've been struggling with my indigos turning clear!"

"the issue with longer lasting ones is probably that they tend to be taller, which would move the flame a lot closer to the bottle."

"As an addendum to the ikea thing, it seems they have two types of tea lights now, the original ones (glimma?) and a cheaper one.  Reviews seem to say that the cheaper ones only burn for about 2 hrs.  If you are willing to burn through…"

"The IKEA ones can be bought on Amazon for 2-3 times the price.  I have bought them direct from IKEA in the past but only when I’m ordering other stuff online (furniture).  I have none left sadly so can’t test them, but my…"

"Ok, well the blue liquid/yellow wax is already melted and moving nicely… so it may well be a colour specific issue.   That one may end up overheating to be honest, but it is working really well at the moment, I’m quite surprised at…"

"Well mine arrived,  unfortunately the black/plum refuses to get going no matter what I tealight I use.  My thermostat is set to 20 (although it is admittedly in another room, but the room wouldn’t be far off 20). The wax melts but…"

"Yup, I mentioned that earlier tbh.  I rarely see them on ebay. It was more from the point of view of discouraging people from being prats and costing Mathmos money. "

"I apologise Susan! :( Still bought one though!  I ended up going for the black/plum as I liked the clean look.  I'll have to ratch around in my storage to see if I have any other clear telstar bottles I've forgotten about as I…"
