Candle Care

Storing Candles

Candles are sensitive to light and temperature, so be careful when storing them for any extended period of time. Avoid colour fading, melting or cracking by storing candles in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight or fluorescent light. Storage temperature should not be allowed to exceed 27°C or fall below 0°C. Exposure to moisture may inhibit relighting.

Cleaning Candles

Should the mouth of a jar candle become blackened while burning simply extinguish the candle, allow to cool and carefully wipe the jar with a dry paper towel. To avoid such blackening keep the wick trimmed to 1/4" at all times.

Cleaning Spilled Wax from Tabletops, Fabrics, Etc.

We strongly suggest you seek professional advice from cleaning experts such as carpet cleaners or furniture refinishers.
