About 6 months ago I bought a couple of Natural Rock Salt Lamps of the type seen here:http://www.alibaba.com/catalog/11300795/Natural_Rock_Salt_Lamps.html
We have them turned on periodically but not constantly. This evening I went to turn them on and noticed a white residue on the wooden surface (fireplace) where they are situated. I have noticed this before but to be honest didn't pay it too much attention.
Anyway this time it was very noticable so I looked closer and it appears that these lamps "weep". The white residue is obviously salt.
Has anyone else got these lamps and has anyone else noticed the same problem ? There was certainly NO warning in the boxes the lamps were delivered in.
To me it's not too much of a problem but anyone who has these lamps and has situated them on a metal or suchlike surface it could cause major damage.
Any comments or suggestions on cause and remedy would be appreciated.
