Review 1 for Mainstays 6" Unscented Pillar Candle

Don't waste your money.

First time I burned these candles they melted into pools of wax and billowed over the glass candle plates I had (see photos). Instead of the candle burning down and leaving a wall of wax it all just melted outside of the candle itself. What a mess. Will never buy these again; I guess you get what you pay for sometimes.

This candle burned well for me, no problems
Posted 11/02/2012
I saw the last review after I bought one of these candles. Before I bought more, I decided to give this candle a good test. It burned fine for me, over 8 hours. I had to buy more for a company event we are having and couldn't have them malfunction. Like I said it burned just as I expected, no dripping or melting in a slump.

I saw the other review on here and thought I should speak up. I've been purchasing these candles for years and have never once had the wax problem that the other reviewer had. Maybe they had a defective candle or something. These candles do drip a LITTLE bit of wax, but it's hardly noticeable most of the time. And they last a good long time, too. I use one every day (for several hours at a time) and generally one candle will last almost a month. The scent is very mild and not intrusive at all. I highly recommend these!

Review 4 for Mainstays 6" Unscented Pillar Candle

Great for waterproof fire starters!

These are an inexpensive, unscented candle to break down and melt in a tin can over warm heat on a stove then add 64 oz of saw dust to for waterproof fire starters! one candle makes about 6-7, 1"h x 2"w pellets that will burn for 20+ min. They are awesome for emergencies, or for camping and will last forever!

Good product for the price

I enjoy these candles and never really had a problem with wax dripping everywhere, but I wish there were more color options of these unscented candles.
