A few simple precautions will ensure the safe use of your candles and provide lasting enjoyment of the wonderful ambiance they create.
Using Candles Safely
Care during use
For proper performance, candles should burn at least the minimum times shown below:
|Candle size||Approx. Minimum burning time per use|
|1 ½” dia. candle||20 minutes|
|1 ¾” dia. candle||25 minutes|
|2″ dia. candle||30 minutes|
|2 ¾” dia. candle||40 minutes|
|2½” dia. candle||45 minutes|
In circumstances where a candle does not remain lit for the required length of time, it has a tendency to burn a hole down throught the centre of the candle body, making re-ligthting difficult.
Under these conditions, the candle should be trimmed and re-conditioned as follows.
