Caring for Your Brooklyn Wax Candles
Brooklyn Wax Candles are a great way to add ambiance and warmth to any room, but it's important to take proper care of them in order to ensure they burn safely and efficiently. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your candles:
- Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, be sure to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. This will prevent the flame from getting too large and will also help to prevent soot buildup on the glass.
- Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/2 inch remains in the container.
Keep the wax pool clear: As the candle burns, the wax will melt and form a pool around the wick. It's important to keep this pool clear of any debris, such as wick trimmings or matches, as it can cause the candle to burn unevenly.
Burn in a draft-free area: Candles should always be burned in a draft-free area, as drafts can cause the flame to flicker and can also cause the candle to burn unevenly.
Allow the candle to burn for a while: When you first light a candle, it's important to let it burn for a few hours, or until the wax has melted all the way to the edge of the container. This will help to prevent the candle from tunneling and will ensure an even burn.
Don't burn a candle for too long: Candles should never be burned for more than 4 hours at a time. This will help to prevent overheating and will also help to extend the life of the candle.
Keep the candle in a cool, dry place: When not in use, it's important to store your candles in a cool, dry place. This will help to prevent the wax from melting or becoming soft.
By following these simple tips, you can help to ensure that your candles burn safely and efficiently. Happy candle burning, from your friends at the Brooklyn Wax candle company!
