Making Your Candle Last
To ensure a good, clean burn with your candles, the inaugural burn is the most important. Avoid extinguishing the candle until the wax pool that forms close to the wick almost reaches the outer edge of the candle. Then, blow it out and let it set.
Trim wick before a new burn. Extinguish the flame, let the candle wick cool, and trim the wick to 1/4 of inch before relighting.
Done with your candle? REUSE THE JAR! Warm it in the microwave... remove once cool enough to handle and wipe excess wax and wick base away. Wash your jar with soap and warm water and taadaah!
