Candle Care Tips

20 Mar 2015 11:49 AM -
Here at Eco Store we have a beautiful range of candles for around the home.

There are some important tips and tricks you may not know about lighting a candle, so let us explain!

Before lighting 

*It is always best to trim the wick to 1/4 inch before burning and always clear the candle of wick and match debris before lighting.
*Always avoid drafts, vents, and air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning and sooting.
*If provided, you should follow recommended burn times as it will help prevent excessive heat build up.

While Burning 

*A candle container will be hot, therefore you should avoid touching or moving a burning candle.
*Avoid burning a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, put the flame out when 10% or the wax is left.
*Always keep the candle within your sight and away from children and pets. 

When Extinguishing

*Do not use water to extinguish a candle. Water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might break a glass container.
*Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
*After extinguishing, re-position wick in the centre of a the container as wicks have a tendency to travel in a wax pool. 

Happy Lighting
