Candle tips

Oct 30, 2006

Candles are an easy way to add a little festive flair to your home. For the next few months, many of us will be utilizing candles, (starting off with tomorrow night's jack-o-lanterns!), so we thought it would be good to post a few reminders for safe candle usage. Here are 5 important tips from the National Candle Association:

  • Always keep a burning candle within sight.
  • Trim candlewicks to 1/4 inch each time before burning.

  • Don't burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container.
  • To prevent wax splattering, use a candle snuffer to extinguish.
  • Extinguish a canlde if it smoeks, flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes too high.
  • Of course, afterwards, there's always the issue of cleaning candle wax out of candle holders. If you have any good tips, please share in the comments!
