Trim your wicks and stay lit!

Trim your wicks and stay lit!


I know you may be wondering why I am talking about candle wicks. Well, here I am! I want you to win in these candle streets and it is my job to help you do that.

Today's blog topic is about why it is important to trim your candle wicks. Proper candle care can not only prolong the life of your candle but also give your candle a nice clean even burn.

Always trim your candles 1/4" each time you burn your candle. You can trim your candle wick with a wick trimmer, nail clipper or scissors. I prefer wick trimmers because they are easier to use and designed specifically to trim candle wicks.

Some of the downfalls of not trimming your candle wicks is that it will cause your candle flame to be too tall resulting in your candle burning to quickly, excess smoke and black soot around your candle jar.
