                       Safety Tip!                                                                  Factoid:
Never use baking soda to put out a Gel fire!
Use only a chemical (not water) fire extinguisher!
Water will spread wax fires, and while baking 
soda can be used to put out a paraffin wax fire,
it causes some sort of reaction with gel that can
make the fire worse! 
Many people think that Gel burns 5 times or 7 times
longer than paraffin wax (as seen on many websites).
At one time it was believed to be true, but this is in
fact wrong.  Gel realistically burns only 2 - 3 times
longer than regular paraffin wax candles.
