CANDLE SAFETY TIPS

For Your Safety

Always burn votives in a votive container for longest burn time.

Make sure your candle is sitting on a level surface. Otherwise, it will not burn evenly, and you may have an uneven wax pool, causing wax to pour over the edge of the lit candle.

When you light your candle for the first time, let it burn for about one hour per inch of diameter of the candle  or more...2 inch diameter, two hours, 3 inches, three hours and so on.  This way it gets a good start on forming the proper wax pool diameter, and shouldn't drip, nor will it burn a hole down the center of the candle. Always keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch.  This assures proper burning of your candle, and helps it last longer.  This also prevents smoking of the wick.  Never leave burning candles unattended. Place candles on or in non flammable containers while burning.  As the candle burns down, the base of the container can become very hot, even break. Make sure your containers (especially glass) do not come in contact with flammable surfaces.

Be aware of what is above your lighted candle.  Items such as lampshades, curtains, etc. may ignite from the heat generated from the flame. If you chose to display your candle on a flat dish, make sure the dish is at least 2" larger than the diameter of the candle.  This assures that any dripping wax from your candle  lands on the dish, not your furniture.

WAX REMOVAL

If by chance your candle does drip onto your tablecloth, runner, or carpet, place a single layer of brown paper (such as a grocery bag) over the spilled wax and iron with a warm iron.  Keep moving the paper until the wax stops penetrating through.  Wash the item separately for a few washings to insure that the colorant from the wax has washed out.

To best remove wax from wood surfaces, harden the wax as quickly as possible.  Hold a bag of ice cubes against the wax to freeze it.  Then using an "old" plastic credit card gently scrape the wax off. Metal objects may gouge the surface.  Mineral Spirits may be used to remove any remaining wax residue, and then wash normally. The wood may need to be buffed and polished to restore the appearance.

 Removing Wax from Tile and Grout

As candles are often used in a bathroom, accidents can happen.  If wax drips onto tile, let it cool and scrape off with a soft piece of wood, or old credit card.  Rinse with clean water.  Use this procedure with grout as well.

 Removing Wax from Carpet and Upholstery

Let wax cool completely.  Use a dull knife to scrape as much of the wax off the piece.  Place a paper towel or napkin over the remaining wax.  Place a paper bag over the towel.  Place a medium warm iron on top of the bag and move it back and forth.  do not leave in one place for any length of time. The wax will melt and be absorbed into the paper towel, change paper towels frequently.   Do not use gasoline, lighter fluid or anything that may damage the carpet and upholstery.  Always spot check cleaning products in an inconspicuous location.  Finally mix a few drops of mild detergent with a cup of warm water and blot the area.

 Removing Wax from Candleholders

To clean wax out of a votive cup, soak the cup in hot soapy water for 5 minutes, scrub with a cloth to remove any stubborn wax. Or use an SOS pad.   To clean candleholders, put the holder in the freezer and easily pop the pieces off once it freezes.  Candle Wax Remover may also be used for stubborn spots.

If by chance your candle holder has a scrolled edge, and happens to collect melted wax, you can use a hairdryer to melt the wax off the scrolling, then wash in hot soapy water.

This idea is from us......when your wickless jar candle fragrance starts to fade....just add a few droppers of that particular fragrance oil to the melted wax.... or a tart of the same scent...... it's like a brand new candle,  and half the cost!!

Did you know you can also put a few drops of fragrance oil (drops!) on a lightbulb, and when you turn on the light, you will smell the fragrance as it warms up. No need for a lamp ring, although the lamp ring will make the fragrance last longer, as it holds more.

More to do with fragrance oils!!!!   Put a couple drops of fragrance oil down the heat vents in the kitchen....maybe "Hot Apple Pie"....or in your scentpot (not for drinking) on the woodstove.  Whatever your heat source is, a couple drops of fragrance oil will freshen up your room.  One of our customers uses a drop or two in her defrosters, "soft leather", and her interior of her car smells like new!!


Here's an idea that works....when you have a taper candle that is just a little too small for the holder,  take one of your old tapers, or a broken one, light it, hold it over the candle holder hole, and drip about 1/8 inch of wax into the too large candle holder.  Immediately put your taper into the holder, and the hot wax that you put into the holder will hold your tapers nice and tight in the holder.

Here's a great idea that one of our customers shared with us....and we want to share with you.  She picked up a small taper candle holder at a second hand store, and found a pretty little saucer to go with it, glued the saucer to the taper holder, bought one of our chubby pillars, and ended up with a great gift, for about $12.00. Not only home made...but very pretty and unique.  We went shopping, and this is what we came up with.  What a great way to use a single taper holder, and have the option of a larger candle!
