last night i made a discovery, and solved a problem that’s been driving me nuts for ages! just to warn you, it’s a totally insignificant ‘first world’ problem- i’ve (unfortunately) not found a cure to the common cold or anything. although be the way i shouted about it to jason, you might have thought that was the case! this is probably totally lame and most people reading this will be like ‘duh, didn’t you know?!’ but right now i feel like a total (accidental) genius ;)
you know how sometimes cheapo candles burn unevenly? the ones that burn right down to the bottom but only use up half of the wax, and no amount of wick-angling or wax smooshing will get the little mountain of wax building up on one side to burn? well…when you next have something bubbling away in a saucepan on the hob, place said dodgy candle between the gas rings with the built up waxy side closest to the lit ring. the flame from the hob ring will melt down the wax, leaving you with a perfectly smooth candle again! tah daaaaaaaah!
i’ve not felt this proud of myself since i passed my maths gcse! ;)
happy weekend, everyone!
