Trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting
Follow the 2-foot rule - don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable.
Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans, and any air currents.
Trim the wick to a one-quarter inch each time the candle is lit. This helps prevent the flame from getting too large.
Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax.
Extinguish a candle if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container.
Place burning candles at least 3 inches apart from one another.
A burning candle should not be used as a nightlight.
A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time.
Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/2 inch of wax remains in the container.
