Candle in Glass

     • Tall Pillar, 1.3-lb., 6-inch tall: 50 to 75 hours
• Refrigerating candles before burning will slow the burn and allow for a more even burn. Cover with plastic wrap or foil before refrigeration to prevent wicks from absorbing moisture.
• Candles should be placed three inches apart to avoid melting one another.
• To clean a solid candle, use a dab of salad oil and a soft cloth or a piece of nylon.
• When the entire top of the candle is warm, it may be reshaped by gently pressing on the sides and curving the top inward. (Remember to extinguish the candle first!)
• Rotate the candle occasionally to avoid uneven burning from drafts.

Votive Candle

• 2.5-oz. Approximate burn time: 16 to 18 hours
• Keep the wick centered for even consumption of the wax and to prevent possible heat damage to the votive holder.
• If the flame is getting lost in the wax pool, extinguish the flame, pick up the glass with a pot holder or cloth, and carefully pour excess wax into a lined wastebasket or metal container. Relight the candle after it has cooled completely.
• Keep votive wicks centered and trimmed to 1/4-inch to prevent the glass container from breaking.
