*update* whose freakin bright idea was this?

i'm talking about the scentsy warmer. nice theory. however, the application of the device definitely needs some work. the warmer and plug are one piece, ideally to work in a small area without a lot of counter space (e.g. kitchen, bathroom, etc.). you can transport the unit from room to room when the wax is hard in the well. no problem there. the well is just big enough to hold one square of scentsy wax, which is perfect, IF the scent lasted forever! but, as expected, the scent eventually fades. now we have a problem. i've been using mine almost every day in my bathroom and so now the scent has pretty much faded and needs to changed. in order to change the wax, you have to melt it 1st. do ya see where i'm goin with this yet? once the wax has melted, you pour it back into the original container, let it harden again, and then either use it later (if it's still scented) or toss it. ok, do we generally have to get a plug out of an outlet? ok, so my question is slightly sterotypical, but it's not supposed to be. we just generally change things out of our bathroom electrical outlets more often b cuz of the things we have to do to our hair and there NEVER seem to be enough empty plugs, right? anyway, so you have to wiggle this unit to get it out................with the melted wax still in the well. needless to say, the wax is freakin EVERYWHERE. on the mirror............on the the sink..................... brilliant, just bloody brilliant! (distant nightmares of the "livin la vida loca" music video came to mind.....) and of course, it cools/hardens quickly, so trying to get it off is going to be an absolute blast. so, while the concept is really cool, i might be looking for the next generation warmer to see if scentsy comes up with a slightly better design to get the wax out of the well, without getting it all over everywhere i don't want it to be.

**update** i should clarify that i'm referring to the new plug-in warmer. the regular warmer works just great! :)
