Are you someone that dreams of burning candles without the black soot marks on the inside of the container, walls, or ceilings? If so, you're in luck because that's what we're covering today. It's simple really, just follow this rule:
Keep your wick trimmed (no taller than 1/4") and don’t burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
That's it. Follow along to see how we trim the wicks on our 8 oz candle jars.
Before you light the candle, ensure the wick is no taller than ¼”. This one is too tall and will produce soot if you light it.
There are several ways to trim the wick.
Wick Trimmer - One way to trim is using an actual wick trimming tool. You can find these on our website here.
Scissors - Any old scissors should work on shorter candles, just safely clean the blades when you're done.
Fingers - Yep, use your fingertips to snap off the wick as pictured next.
