Size Up, Size Chart not Accurate

Reviewer: A viewer from Arlington, MA US 11/30/12

You definately need to size up with these wicks, the recommended CD10 for my 3" containers was way too smal in the Joy wax! Did not clean sides, weak throw, taking forever to create good pool. Not giving up yet, will test the CD 14 next. It would be nice if NG offered smaller pkgs of wicks for testing purposes, now stuck with 100 CD10 wicks that don't perform in the wax, alot of waste.

Great wicks BUT TEST

Reviewer: Elissa Carr from New Bedford, MA USA 02/26/16

I have gone through many, many frustrations recently. I had 'the perfect wick' but ran out and I forgot to make note of which one and which size it was. Since then I have been failing every which way. One wick curls, one wick just isn't big enough even in the largest size.... FINALLY... I'm going to do what I wish someone had done for me, which is give specifics.

I used Soy 444. I used jelly jars [8oz] and mayo jars [16oz] ... using this guideline for the wick did me no favors. I ended up using a 20 wick for the 16oz and an 18 for the 8oz. It burns lovely, minimal mushrooming, burns clean to the edge of the candle rather than tunneling like many of the test subjects beforehand.

Just test, buy as many samples as you want, but test test test.. I've wasted so much money in wicks as well as return candles from failed wicks.

CD Wicks

Reviewer: K. Binkley from Nashville, Tn 11/23/15

I noticed these wicks got low reviews, however, I love these wicks. Ive tried Hemps, Zinc, HTP's, and my pick are these. I have a wonderful scent throw, hot and cold, good melt pool all the way across and burns slow. I use mason jars, jelly jars with good results. To me, testing is the key. Ive spent a lot of money on different wicks, wasted a lot of money throwing out wax, and much frustration. These are a keeper! Love 'em

Not so great

Reviewer: A viewer from Detroit, MI US 01/27/13

I recently ordered CD7,cd5,CD10, CD12 wicks thinking that i was getting a great wicks for the wax that was recommended. I order these pre-waxed wicks. not happy at all, they are very flimsy. Most of the time leaves mushroom afterburn and black crumbs in this Joy wax. Will not be buying these any more.

not happy

Reviewer: A viewer from Manassas, VA US 12/06/12

i recently ordered CD7 wicks thinking that i was getting the thin wicks that i normally order and for some reason received these thick, pre-waxed wicks. not happy at all, they are bent in two or three places, very flimsy in the wick tabs, most of the time leaves mushroom afterburn and black crumbs in this WOW wax.

Reviewer: A viewer from Cedar City, UT US 07/27/08

I bought the CD 12 wicks for my 3" diameter jars and they don't seem to be large enough, I think I need to switch to CD 14. The melt pool with the 12 doesn't even reach the sides of the jar after 4 hours of burning, it should melt all the way across in 3 hours if it is for a 3 inch diameter candle shouldn't it?

CD Wicking

Reviewer: A viewer from Toledo, OH US 04/13/06

I love the cd wicking myself. But I also seem to have the same problem with the wicks coming out of the tap and not staying stuck to the glass.I do use hot glue.

Really disappointed

Reviewer: A viewer from Hamburg, PA USA 10/12/14

When I went to use my wicks for my candle orders, I found that a majority of the wicks were bent, wax was broken or they were just so crumpled up that I had to throw a bunch out. Then I got the bright idea to use a lighter to melt the wax overlay. While that helped, it was a BIG waste of my time when I needed to do orders. Maybe a better method for packaging would help?

Excellant Wicks

Reviewer: A viewer from MI US 11/24/06

I have been searching for the perfect wicks for my Romance By Shirlee soy candle line from many different sources. I think this is it! Clean burning and a great pool. Although my pool size is different then listed, still a great wick.
