Candle Care

At The Melt House, we want you to get the most out of your candles. Here are some tips to help you care for your candles and keep them burning amazing:

  1. Trim the wick: Before lighting your candle, trim the wick to about 1/4 inch. This helps to prevent smoking and ensures an even burn.

  2. Burn the candle for the right amount of time: The first time you light your candle, make sure to burn it for at least 2-3 hours. This helps to create a full melt pool and ensures an even burn in the future. After that, try to burn your candle for no more than 4 hours at a time.

  3. Keep the candle away from breeze: Burning a candle near windows and doors can cause uneven burning and excessive smoking. Make sure to keep your candle in a still area, away from too much air movement and circulation.

  4. Use a candle snuffer: To extinguish your candle, use a candle snuffer rather than blowing it out. This helps to prevent hot wax from splattering and ensures a longer burn time for your candle.

  5. Store your candle properly: When not in use, store your candle in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This helps to prevent fading and discoloration.

By following these simple candle care tips, you can enjoy your candles for longer and get the most out of your purchase. Thank you for choosing The Melt House.
