Today I learned how to fix a... uh... I apparently already forget the term... uh... a "tunneled"? candle?
Like, you know the bigger candles, I'm not sure what they're called, pillar candles maybe? Not super giant ones, just... you know, a bigger candle? Well I have one of those. I don't use it very often and when I do I don't burn it very often. No particular reason why, I'm just not a very candle person of late I guess.
Well that candle got a sort of tunnel in it that meant it wasn't really doing the candle part very well and it turns out that's a thing. I guess you have to burn pillar type candles for two hours minimum or they do this tunneling thing. Which isn't great.
I tried a couple of internet suggestions on how to fix it but they didn't work as well as the internet promised me they would so I just sort of carved the thing down a bit and stuck it away back in a cupboard.
But I will do my best to not burn it for a short (i.e. less than two hours) amount of time the next time I want me some candle time.
(Apparently the internet knew and just me didn't?)
