They said that type of wax hasn't been tested in those, so they can't tell me that it's okay to use.

Um what type of wax are you using? If its soy it hasa lower melting point than paraffin so if thats not suitable I cant think what wax would ever be.

I really do think they should havea lil ditty alongside the tealights saying Not suitable for(whichever wax) or Suitable for (whatever waxes).

Personally Kelly Id make a batch of bat bombs in your ordinary moulds and try say two out in the tealights just in case they arent suitable for bath bomb moulds. If they arent then Id send them back and get the refund.

Sorry youve had this experience

Maybe its all in the name tealight cups. Is there an inference they are not for the candle but to hold the tealight candle.

Either way tis very frustrtaing and should be clear
