SUPER STRONG SMELLING CANDLES
General Candle Tips & Safety
One of the best things that you can do for your candles
is to keep the wick trimmed to ¼ of an inch. Doing this before each
use will allow them to burn evenly and last longer.
Burning candles in drafty areas can cause uneven burning and excessive smoking, not to mention that your candles will burn faster. If you notice the flame of
the candle flickering in any direction other than straight up, there is a draft.
Prevent drafts by keeping burning candles away from heating and air-conditioning
vents and open windows.
Constant flickering and smoking can occur when the teardrop shape of the flame
is disturbed. This allows small amounts of unburned carbon particles (soot)
to escape from the flame as a visible wisp of smoke.
To blow out a candle, a candlesnuffer works best. If you don’t have a
candlesnuffer readily available, you can blow out the candle by placing an index
finger in front of the flame and blowing it gently. This causes the air to surround
the flame and minimize splattering of hot wax.
Candles will fade if left in the light for an extended period of time. Never
put candles in a window or directly expose it to bright outdoor light or indoor
A candle will burn more slowly and evenly if it’s refrigerated before
using. Wrap the candle in plastic or foil before refrigerating to prevent wicks
from absorbing moisture.
Do not place it the freezer. Water will compromise the wax. Container candles
will contract away from the glass.
Before a dinner party, light and then extinguish the candles, as they will light
more quickly and easily when you are ready to use them.
Always store candles in a cool, dark, dry place.
Keep all candles out of the reach of children and pets. Never leave a burning
candle unattended. Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
If you like to group your candles, make sure they are at least 3 inches apart
when burning. Candles placed too closely together can create their own draft
and cause the candles to flare.
Herbs, flowers, and spices are flammable. They may spark and flame higher than
the candle would otherwise normally burn. Please utilize extra cautions when
burning candles around flammable objects.
Warmer weather will cause candles to burn more quickly than in colder weather.
Rub your candles with vegetable oil to remove fingerprints, smudges and small
For a margin of safety, discontinue using a candle when it is within 2 inches
of the holder or ½ inch of the container bottom.
Burn candles for 1 hour per inch of diameter for longer lasting candles. For
example, a 4-inch candle should be burned for 4 hours at a time.
To remove wax from a container, place it in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
The wax should pop right out. Another way is to put the container in a sink
of HOT water and let it sit for 5 minutes. The wax should be able to pop right
How to remove candle wax
Place ice in a plastic bag and use it to freeze the wax, chipping all off that
Take a brown paper bag or a paper towel and lay it over the wax. Make
sure there is no writing on either side of the bag.
Heat iron to medium-hot and press it over the bag/paper towel allowing it to
absorb the wax.
Do not touch the carpet with the iron.
You may need to use several bags/paper towels in order to remove all the wax
Make sure that you check your iron for wax residue before using it on clothing.
Once you have removed all the wax that you can absorb, clean the area with carpet
stain remover. If that does not work, try using a steam vacuum with carpet cleaner
to remove the stain. Also, make sure you use extremely HOT water when using
a steam vacuum.
Always attend to wax spillage right away as the dye from the wax might stain.
Heat the wax with a blow dryer or heat gun and slide a dull plastic instrument (such as a credit
card) under it to pop it up.
Clean any residue with warm water and dishwashing liquid, rinsing well and then
Let harden, and then remove as much wax as possible.
Pour boiling water through affected area.
Repeat until wax is removed from clothing.
Then wash as usual.
Do not use carpet method on clothes as it could set the candle dye in the fabric.
