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!
