Tips & Tricks to burn candles safely

Tips & tricks for burning candles safely | Candles have an enchanting power to create a warm, soothing atmosphere in any home. Whether you enjoy a relaxing evening alone, a romantic dinner with your partner or a social gathering with friends, candlelight adds a touch of magic to any occasion. However, to fully enjoy the beauty of candles, it is vital to use them safely and responsibly. In this article, we not only discuss the essential safety instructions for burning candles, but also share useful tips & tricks to burn candles safely and have an optimal burn.

Safety Instructions for Burning Candles

To begin, let’s look at the most important safety instructions to follow when burning candles:

  1. Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface: Before lighting the candle, it is important to make sure it is on a solid surface, away from possible flammable materials such as curtains, furniture or paper.
  2. Keep candles out of reach of children and pets: Candles may contain hot wax and are therefore not toys. Make sure they are kept out of reach of prying hands and curious snouts.
  3. Never leave a lit candle unattended: Whether you’re running off to grab something or going to sleep, make sure all candles are safely extinguished before leaving the room.
  4. Avoid moving a burning candle: The container can become hot and cause serious burns. Move the candle only when it is out and the container has cooled.
  5. Provide a draft-free environment: Do not place the candle in a drafty room, this can cause uneven burning and even create dangerous situations.
  6. Store candles safely when not in use: Store them in a cool, dry place below 25°C to prevent melting and maintain quality. This also prevents the color of the candle and gemstones from fading due to sunlight.

Tips for Optimal Burning

In addition to following the safety instructions, there are some tips and tricks you can use to get the most out of your candles:

  1. Trim the wick to 6 mm: Before lighting the candle, trim the wick to about 6 mm to promote even burning and reduce soot formation.
  2. Remove added objects: If you use candles with added objects such as gems, remove them as soon as the candle wax has melted to prevent damage to the objects.
  3. Prevent overheating: Do not let the candle burn too long. Once the desired burning time is reached, blow out the candle to prevent overheating and possible damage to the container. Extinguish the candle before the flame reaches the bottom of the container.
  4. Reuse tin boxes: Leftover candle wax can be easily removed by soaking the tin box in warm water. This way you can reuse the box for other purposes.
  5. Store candles in an appropriate place: Make sure candles are stored in a place where they are not exposed to direct sunlight or heat sources to prevent melting.

By following these simple tips, you can make the most of the warmth, ambiance and beauty that candles bring to your home while ensuring safety. Have fun creating an enchanting ambiance in your living space!
