Candle Trimmers

by CandleLuxury.com on July 16, 2011

Are Candle Trimmers Really Necessary?

The first burn of a candle is the key to providing the proper even burn for prolonging the life of the candle. The burn should be long enough to create a melt pool that covers the top of the candle to the edge of the glass. The amount of time this takes depends on the size of the candle, but it is usually about 1-3 hours.

The wick should always be trimmed to about 1/4 inch with a candle trimmer before each use to prevent the candle from smoking. If the candle should begin to smoke during use, snuff out the candle, trim the wick and light again. Always keep candles out of drafts and on level surfaces, because this will prevent uneven burning and smoking.

Why Candle Trimmers?

Candle trimmers are very important tools for maintaining candles. They are sharp and properly angled, which allows for an easy and clean cut that keeps the wick from fraying. Candle Web design in Long Island trimmers also catch the wick trimming so that it does not fall in the wax. Keeping the wick properly trimmed will make the candle last longer.
