How to use candle care tools to make your candles beautiful !
The proper tool makes every task easy. This is the essential one for maintaining your candle's wick properly.
The ideal wick length is ¼ - ½ inch, and trimming the wick to that length at purchase and beyond is always recommended. A wick that is too long will cause excess smoke and sooting, plus excess wick debris to collect at the top of the wick, not fun and not safe. An untrimmed can also cause the candle to burn too hot, which can affect the fragrance and cause your candle to burn up faster than necessary.
THE CANDLE TOOL: Wick Trimmers. Trimming the wick is easy enough when your candle is new, but that gets tricky when the candle has been burned a few times. Enter wick trimmers. The long handle of this popular candle accessory allows you to easily reach the wick at the bottom of the candles, and the cleverly designed trimmers not only clip the burned wick debris, they collect it for easy retrieval. Awkward scissor wick trimming, be gone!
