    Has anyone tested this to see how many hours it will burn?

    This looks cool and all, but can someone breakdown the cost analysis of this? Might not be cost effective. Still cool don't get me wrong.

    Not everyone has a dollar store with an ample supply of your candles. I have bought many survivor candles that do 80 hours and have them in my stores. I good buy at the time, but this......... will burn for weeks.

    Cost effective? I did it reread the posts or look under my profile for started threads from 2-3 weeks ago and for my thread on a shortening candle. A 48 ounce can of vegetable shortening is $3 or so depending on brand, a wide cotton string for the wick or buy one from Hobby Lobby etc...., a nut or washer to hold the string to the bottom as it hardens back up (I recommend melting and pouring into your container, and mason jars......... A candle that burns for weeks for a few dollars....... what math do you need to add up?

    Sounds awesome - I might have to add some to mine too 😀
