Candle Safety Home Life / Suddenly Single

Hello everyone:

Today’s blog is on candle safety. As a former Home Interiors and Gifts displayer, we were frequently given tips on how to handle candles safely and I want to share those ideas with you.

When using an open-flame candle, make sure you never leave the candle unattended. Keep the wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch; do not keep them burning more hours than their width in diameter. That is, if you have a candle that is three inches in diameter, it should not remain lit for more than three hours.

A candle can cover up the smell of  a burned dinner. My hubby used to say that he could tell what type of dinner I would be serving by the size of the candle that was burning when he got home. If it was a big candle, he would take me out to dinner.

Have a great day!
