Candle Safety

Safety First

1. For best burning performance and to reduce soot emissions, trim the wick to   

        ¼  inch each time before burning.

 2. Do not exceed burning candles for more than 4 hours.

 3. Discontinue use when ½ inch of wax remains.

 4. Place on a flat, heat resistant surface that is away from anything flammable.

 5.  Remove any decorative accents prior to burning.

 6. Extinguish candles with a wick dipper.

 7. Do not drop foreign matter, wick trimmings, or matches into wax pool.

 8. Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents and air currents.

 9. If using a glass container, remember the glass becomes hot during operation.

 10.  Extinguish a candle if it smokes flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes too high.

 11. Always burn candles in well ventilated room.

 12. And the most important rule of all, never leave a burning candle unattended.

Candles should be stored in a cool, dark, dry place and, for tapers, in a flat position to prevent warping. When stored properly, candles can be enjoyed for years and play an import role in traditions.
