Burning Tips

* Never leave a burning candle unattended, even out of sight.
 
* Please keep wicks trimmed to 1/4" and centered.  Make sure wick clippings do not fall into wax pool. 
 
* If you are burning a Chubbie candle, give it a little hug when the sides get warm, this helps it keep its shape.  Again, please keep wick trimmed to 1/4". Chubbie could use a hug after about an hour.  Always burn in a candle pan.
 
* Never burn a candle in a draft, including ceiling fans, they will burn unevenly.
 
* Burn times with candles are different:  Always burn candle until the melt pool reaches the side.  If you don't you will cause a tunnel effect and the candle will continue to just burn straight down.  If in doubt, put candle out, allow to cool and relight.
 
* Direct light can cause candle color to fade.  Keep out of sunlight.
 
* Keep burning candles away from pets and children. Wax is hot and will burn.
 
* Always burn a candle on some type of heat resistant holder.  Be sure they are on a level surface.
 
* Highly scented candles will produce some smoking.  Keep wick trimmed and avoiding drafts will help reduce this.
 
* Remember to burn with caution and never leave unattended.
