The Art of Burning Candles Properly and Safely

Candles are safe products but they can be a safety risk when not properly used or attended to. Like everything else, they can last longer when they are properly cared. Here are some candle safety rules and simple, practical and common sense tips to preserve your candle’s life:

• Candle Safety
o Keep burning candles within sight. Never leave them unattended.
o Keep burning candles away or far from anything that easily catches fire, such as draperies, books, papers, beddings, etc.
o Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, fans, etc.
o Keep candles away from children’s and pet’s reach.
o Trim wicks to ¼ inch before lighting the candle.
o Use specifically designed candleholders which are heat-resistant.
o Place candleholders on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
o Burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
o Extinguish burning candles a couple of inches before they burn all the way down.
o Keep burning candles at least 3 inches apart from each other.
o Do not extinguish candles with water to avoid wax splatter and breaking glass.
• Candle Care
o Store candles in a cool, dark and dry place.
o Use a dry or water-dampened piece of nylon or soft cloth to rub and clean a candle’s surface.
o Remove wax dripping from candleholders by running hot water over them or placing them in the freezer.
o Remove wick debris, dirt and other objects that may have fallen into the candle’s wax pool.
o Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax dripping from candleholders.
o Avoid placing candles in areas where they are directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lights.
o Extinguish candles after 2 hours of burning, trim the wick, and let the wax cool down before re-lighting.

You’ll know that a candle is properly and safely burning when you see a calm and steady flame, when there is no flickering or smoke, and when there are no flare ups or leaping flames.
