Candle Care & Safety Tips

Candle Care & Safety Tips

For the best Mad Chandler candle burning experience, we suggest the following Candle Care & Safety Tips.

·         Upon first ever use, burn for at least two hours, or until the entire surface has turned to liquid wax. This will help prolong the life of your candle.

·         Trim wick to 1/4” before each lighting. This will maintain an even and clean burn.

·         Burn for no more than 3-4 hours at a time.

·         Always keep candles in sight when in use. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire such as furniture, drapes, books, paper, flammable materials, etc.

·         Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.

·         Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.

·         Choose an area away from drafts, open air vents or ceiling fans. This will help avoid rapid burning and prevent flare-ups.

·         Candle, container and/or wax can become hot when in use.

·         Always burn candle on a stable, heat resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.

·         Keep out of reach of children and pets.

·         Keep wax pool free from wick, matches and other debris at all times.

·         Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.

·         Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, align and trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.

·         Never burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish flame when it comes within 1/2" of the bottom of the container.

·         Extinguish candle carefully, allow it to cool completely before touching or moving.

·         Recommend using a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. Never use water as it can cause wax to splatter or glass to break.
