Ain't it the god's truth!! ;) I swear, despite my best efforts, my
cones always leak after a few days (I don't have a clientele so I can
make a cone last a week or more.) I've used industrial-strength
packing tape, and this still happens. I'm not sure if its the
essential oil or the lemon juice (or neither, or both), but I think
something eventually disolves the adhesive on the packing tape. I'm
going to have to try the Heather/Kenzi et al. triangle method (I use
rectangles or squares), because if I could solve this problem, I'd
truly have the perfect henna tool (for me, anyway!)
