Candle Care Tips
A few simple rules and best practices are all you need to keep your candles in tip-top shape!
  • Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place.
  • You can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.
  • Wax drippings can be removed from most candle holders by running hot water over them. Some home care experts prefer removing wax by first placing the candle holder in the freezer for an hour or so. This allows the wax to shrink and easily pop out when the candle holder is removed from the freezer.
  • Never use a knife or a sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass votive holder. It might scratch or weaken the glass, causing it to break upon subsequent use.
  • Avoid burning candles in any glass item not specifically designed for candles. Glass candle holders are specifically manufactured to withstand the temperature changes that occur when burning a candle. Everyday glassware is not designed for burning candles.
  • Remember, a lighted candle is an open flame. Be careful. Always follow the basic rules of fire safety when burning candles.
