Trim your wicks, people!
THE FACTS: The ideal wick length is 6mm 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. Without proper care wick debris will collect at the top of the wick, or fall into your clean wax.
An untrimmed wick can also cause the candle to burn too hot, which can affect the fragrance and cause your candle to burn faster than necessary.
HOW TO USE: 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 our cleverly designed trimmers not only clip the burned wick debris, they collect it for easy retrieval. Make sure you straighten the wick once your done. Awkward scissor wick trimming, be gone!
