CANDLE SAFETY

Safety Rules

  1. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  2. Always burn candles on a heat resistant surface. Candle holders may become hot and damage furniture. A good heat resistant surface can be made from a ceramic tile (cover bottom with felt to protect furniture).
  3. Keep all burning candles away from children and pets.
  4. Position candles away from flammable objects (curtains, fabrics etc).
  5. Place freestanding candles in a shallow dish or bowl to catch the wax in case of a blowout.
  6. Do not burn candles to the very bottom.
  7. To avoid black marks on a shelf or wall make sure the candle is positioned away from the wall and without a shelf too close above it. 
  8. To remove black marks from the candle glass, extinguish the candle and wipe the glass with a dry cloth. Make sure the wick is upright and allow the candle to solidify. Trim the wick to 5mm and relight the candle.
