Candle Care from CAPERS
We have the candles, that is for sure. And you are buying them....GREAT! Now what. The first time you burn that new candle, make sure you have plenty of time to train your candle. If the wick is really long, trim it and then light and let burn for a couple of hours or until the wax is pooled all the way out to the edge. Otherwise, the next time you burn it, the flame will just burn the size of the first burn following the wick down the middle...wasting all the outer wax. Also, keep the wick trimmed to a quarter inch to keep it from smoking. Our tapers are dripless, but any candle will drip in a draft. Keep your candles out of the way of heating vents or the door. And of course, never leave a candle burning unattended! A burning candle is a warm touch. Enjoy. Tomorrow...getting wax out of your table cloth.
