Best Practices for Burning Candles
Candles have been used for centuries to provide light, ambiance, and relaxation. However, many people do not know the best practices for burning candles. By following a few simple guidelines, you can ensure that you get the most out of your candles while also keeping yourself and your home safe.
Keep Your Candles Clean
Before lighting a candle, it is important to ensure that it is clean. Dirt and debris can interfere with the burning process and cause your candle to burn unevenly. Use a soft cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt that may have accumulated on the surface of the candle. It is also recommended to trim the wick before lighting it to prevent excessive smoke and soot. New Flame candles can burn up to 50 hours. To get the best results, proper cleaning is necessary.
Place Your Candles Properly
Another important factor to consider when burning candles is their placement. Candles should always be placed on a stable and heat-resistant surface, away from anything that could catch fire. It is also recommended to keep candles at least 6 inches apart from each other to prevent them from melting into each other. Finally, avoid placing candles in drafty areas or near open windows as this can cause them to burn unevenly and produce excessive smoke. With the right amount of care, New Flame candles will light up your perfect world.
Monitor Your Candles
It is essential to monitor your candles while they are burning to ensure that they are not causing any harm. Never leave a burning candle unattended or in a room with young children or pets. If you need to leave the room, be sure to extinguish the candle first. It is also recommended to avoid burning candles for more than four hours at a time to prevent overheating and potential fire hazards. At New Flame we ensure that the candle jar itself is not warm to the touch. This adds a level of safety when handling your candle.
