Fire safety filter: My husband thinks that a lit candle left unattended on the back of our toilet in the bathroom is not a fire hazard, and I disagree. Please help us settle this argument with facts and figures. [more inside]

I need help finding a company that takes your existing wine bottle and turns it into a pillar candle by cutting off the top and pouring a candle into it. I believe it was in OR or WA. [more inside]

I've been searching for a candle from the old williamsburgh candle company thats apparently been discontinued. E-mails to their corporate office have not been answered. The candle is called an apothecary candle and the smell, (odor? aroma?), is cucumber melon. We had purchased it at AC Moore for the longest time, but alas nothing is forever. I'd buy quantities if I could. Any help would be appreciated.

When a candle is burnt indoors, what happens to the wax? An amount of smoke equivalent to the mass of the candle is released as it's burnt (?)--does this manage to escape the house, or does most of it stay in the room and coat the walls, floors, ceiling, etc.?

Is there a specific name for the Catholic candles you can get at Mexican grocery stores? The ones in glass jars with pictures of saints, Marias, or Jesus? And can anyone tell me more about them, such as how they fit into Catholicism or their cultural resonances? I'm curious about them, and I've found remarkably little info on the internet-- which leads me to wonder if I'm not using the right search term, or if (egads!) there actually is not a website out there with information.

Does anyone know where to get/order St. Norbert and/or St. Hubert candles? I'd like to get 7 day candles if I could, but any help would be appreciated. I'm trying to get something along the lines of this.

My sister gave me a lovely big pillar candle for Christmas. When I went to burn it last night, the wick burned off. There's a little tiny stub of a wick- I can light it, but it only burns a small blue flame. Can this candle be saved?
