2.  While that is melting, prepare container and wick. Clean container well and dry with a lint free cloth.  Adhere wick tab to double sided adhesive, and stick other side into container.

  1. Wrap excess wick around dowel rod, centered so that wicks are straight up and down.  Use wire or rubber band to attach a second dowel rod to the first, sandwiching the wick in place.
