I bought a Solitude 3-wick for my mom's birthday,
which was Monday. We lit it that morning and didn't turn it out until
later that night (oops). We lit it again yesterday and let it burn all
day (oops, we did it again). Well, this morning I woke up to find wax
EVERYWHERE! Seems neither of us bothered to snuff it out and during the
night, the wax spilled over...and over...and over until there was only
about an inch left of the 3-wick!
It caved completely, which I would've have expected it
too, but I guess the flame just kept going and going.
I started to clean it up, the wax from the sides of
the entertainment center, screen of the TV, found some in the back of
the entertainment center (hubby's gonna have to move it to clean it!),
waxfalls (like a waterfall) to the floor.
It was burning in the Frolicking Frosty, did you know
there are little nooks and crannys that wax likes to creep into? When I
got to the bigger chunks, I found a few pens, a highlighter, a tube of
lipstick, a $10 bill, an old watch, a gift certificate card for Toys R
Us, some junk mail....and a partridge in a pear tree!
UGH!!! What a mess! I took pictures and forwarded them
to my leader, who is probably still laughing 6 hours later. I guess I'll
print them and show guests what happens when you leave a candle
unattended! Sorry, mom!
