My son bought a salt lamp recently and we were surprised that it was soaking wet. After doing some research online I discovered that salt lamps will sweat if they have been in a humid environment. It is not uncommon to open the bag and find a sweaty lamp.
Tip: I recommend placing your lamp on a small plate in case it begins sweating again. If it does, consider moving it to a less humid location. It can also help to keep the light on as often as possible, to keep it dry.
I never heard of a salt lamp. What powers this thing?
It's a big chunk of pink Himalayan salt, with a lightbulb in the middle. I suppose they may have battery operated LED ones now but all the ones I have seen have plugged into the wall.
They produce a lovely glow through the crystal. I see them in gift shops all the time. There is some information about salt lamps in this Wikipedia article.
It has a lightbulb base that is attached to the bottom of the piece of salt. The piece of salt is hollowed out and the lightbulb goes up inside to make it glow. They are neat!
Who says you can't learn something new? Salt lamps...who knew!! :-))
