Where should you not put a salt lamp on?
Places NOT to put your salt lamp: Rooms no one uses. Anywhere that’s too accessible to pets or toddlers (for safety reasons). In humid areas like the kitchen or bathroom. On top of electronics or expensive furniture (wooden especially) where dropping moisture could cause damage.
How do you transport a salt lamp?
Whenever handling your lamp, moving it around, changing bulbs or cleaning it, make sure your lamp is switched off and unplugged. When storing your lamp away make sure you wrap it in a plastic bag first. Only use a damp (but not wet) cloth to clean the surface of your lamp.
Do salt lamps melt in water?
Salt lamps do not dissolve. Exposure to dampness or water will cause the salt lamp to leak water and give the appearance of “melting.” The water wouldn’t fully dissolve the lamp unless it’s ground and boiled in 100° C water.
Do salt lamps cause corrosion?
Corrosion. Genuine salt lamps draw moisture from the air, which can cause water to condense on the lamp’s surface. But if your lamp is not warm, the water may trickle onto the lamp’s base or the furniture underneath it. If either surface is metal, the water could cause corrosion.

What happens if you lick a salt lamp?
The odd lick of a salt lamp is unlikely to cause harm, but if your cat or dog gets hooked on the salt – much like we get hooked on potato chips – that’s when problems can arise. If your pet likes the salt, he may become “addicted” and go back to it again and again – leading to salt toxicity.
How long does a salt lamp last?

What can I put under a salt lamp?
If not in use (and the lamp is dry) we recommend wrapping in a plastic bag or glad-wrap after unplugging and removing the cord. We recommend you place your salt lamp on a placemat, or something similar to protect the surface your crystal salt lamp is sitting on.
Can I cover my salt lamp at night?
The answer is yes. A salt lamp contains a low watt bulb that heats up the Salt Lamp. However, the bulb in the salt lamp is not hot enough to burn the salt rock or wooden base. As a result, Salt Lamps are safe to be left on overnight.
Why does my salt lamp keep melting?
Salt crystal lamps are supposed to evaporate any water on the surface of the lamp. If it doesn’t evaporate properly, it can start to drip and give the illusion of melting. The bulb should make the lamp warm to touch, but not hot.
Why is my salt lamp turning white?
This white powder forms in the presence of excess humidity in the room, such as that from a bathroom, as the salt crystals in your lamp quickly dissolve. Salt naturally attracts moisture from the air and the white powder comes from the interaction of the salt crystals and water molecules.
Do salt lamps work without the light on?
No, you do not. It is advisable to have your Salt Lamp on when you are at home. But like all electronics, it is not advisable to leave it on unattended when someone is not home.
Why is my salt lamp turning black?
