jnkthailand Posted December 11, 2009 Report Share Posted December 11, 2009 Hello Gang - Newbie to the site but been making soy candles for 2 years now. Very good info on here so far. Now to my ? We have been pouring unscented clear cup teas the entire time we have been making candles. Always made sense to us because the burn time is almost double that of paraffin. OK - I have sold over 4000 tealights made with TL13 wicks, GB464 wax. I have just recently had complaints of them NOT burning good. 1 customer had 2 out of 7 that "dudded" out - like the wick died and the other said they had a very small flame and nearly died. Didn't burn all the way up either. I pour small batches - 1 # of wax makes 29 tealights. I test burn at least 1 - sometimes 2 from each batch. I burn them in cups, out of cups, yadda yadda yadda! I have never had one not burn up beautifully. Has anyone started having trouble with GB464 wax? It's the only varialble - other than the customer. Also, does anyone know of anything environmental that can affect burning other than drafts and not enough oxygen - like in some tart warmers. I was wandering if humidity levels could affect anything - because both customers were North of my location (and that is NOT a Yankee joke). I hate to ramble but I am at my witts end. The first complaint was legit but I thought a "fluke" now the 2nd complaint within 2 weeks makes me thing supplies issue.
