Calling all candle lovers! The holidays have passed and most likely you’ve received an abundance of your favorite candles. Before lighting a candle, be sure to follow these 4 important safety tips:
Don’t touch your candle while hot! Never touch or move while lit; wait until the wax has hardened.
Keep an eye on your candles. Always burn candles where you can see them (no longer than 3-4 hours at a time) and never near anything that can catch fire. Candles will burn slower and more evenly when kept in draft-free areas. Extinguish the flames before you leave a room. Never extinguish the flame with water.
Keep your candles clean. Trim wicks to ¼ inch before you light them (every time).
Keep candles out of reach. If you have pets, or young children, be sure to keep your candles in an area where they cannot reach them.
Enjoy your candles safely!
