I’m a big fan of candles, have been for many years. All pyro jokes aside, I’ve always found fire to be relaxing and the combination of a small dancing flame and the soothing scent of a good candle helps me focus when I’m at my desk.
Today I’ll share a quick tip that I learned from my good friend Chandra Saiz that is great for anyone like me that loves candles, specifically jar candles. Instead of blowing out the candle when you’re done, dip the wick into liquid and stand it back up. Then, when you want to light the candle next time trip the wick down. This will prevent soot from collecting on the jar and the candle from burning all the way down too quickly.
Now, I’m off to use this new found knowledge to further enjoy my new Coconut Mango candle!
