Tiki Torch Wicks: How to Replace, and Reviews

Tiki Torch Burning Away

Tiki Torch Burning Away

Replacing Tiki Torch Wicks is not a difficult task, but it is one that is required from time to time. If you accidentally forget to cap your wicks after a night on the patio, and it rains, your wicks may get water logged, and ruined. Or perhaps you are curious to try a different formulation for Tiki Torch Fuel (we love Eucalyptus!), you should swap out your wicks when you change your fuel source. Or perhaps they just got old and frayed over time and use.

This article focuses on how to change your Tiki Torch Wicks, and also looks at several replacement wicks available online.

Tiki Torches come in a variety of types, from the traditional kitschy bamboo styles everyone is familiar with to the new, modern Metal Tiki Torches like the one shown here.  These torches bring ambiance to the garden or patio space, supply much needed light, and often help keep the bugs away! They can be extremely helpful, and it’s wise to give them occasional attention to ensure that they are burning properly for the rest of the season.

Best Tiki Torch Fuel, Keep the Bugs Away!

Tiki Torches are super useful outdoor lanterns, providing light, ambiance, and (depending on the fuel) mosquito protection. Whether the torch is a modern metal Tiki torch or a kitschy bamboo style one, the type of fuel put into the torch will determine how well it burns, what the smell and smoke levels are, and how well the bugs are repelled. After a thorough examination of several types of Tiki Torch Fuel, we have determined that the Best Tiki Torch Fuel on the market is the Firefly Eucalyptus Blend Tiki Fuel. A 2017 study in the Oxford Journal of Insect Science tested several mosquito repellent products and found Eucalyptus to be one of the most effective substances at keeping mosquitoes away — much better than Citronella, which the study found did not do much at all.

As an additional plus, this Tiki Torch Fuel smells fairly mild, and produces a relatively low amount of smoke and soot. It’s a bit more expensive than the traditional Tiki Torch Fuels, but we feel the benefits this fuel offers make it more than worth the extra cost.

For a closer look at the Firefly Eucalyptus Tiki Torch Fuel, see below.

Metal Tiki Torches Reviews and Product Information

Tiki torches are a great way of placing elegance into your garden. Really! Of course, some Tiki torches are going to bring to mind the kitschy Polynesian Tiki bar style that spread throughout the world starting in the 1950s, but several Metal Tiki Torches available now are much more stylish than what you may find in a big box store, and would fit in any decor. Our favorite of these elegant metal Tiki torches is the H Potter Copper Rustic Tiki Torch set. These are on the expensive side, but are strikingly beautiful, and are certain to elevate your garden’s evening ambiance.  They have fantastic copper color and patina, and their style oozes quality. They are available in individual units, and as a set of two.

For a complete overview of the Copper Rustic Tiki Torch set, please see our Product Reviews section below.
