Tips to make a candle last longer
The decoration magazine Marie Claire has published a very useful article where it advises what should be done and what not so that the aromatic candles last longer. As a cover image of the article, they have used the Sucre collection by Cerabella.
We agree with Cristina Sánchez de Pedro´s recommendations for Marie Claire. In addition, in Cerabella we have the perfect accessory to increase the durability of the candle, our Candle Care Kit: a case for looking after candles formed by these four accessories and their user guide:
- Candle wick trimmer: It is a tool in the shape of a pair of scissors with a receptacle. It is used to feed the flame by eliminating hot ash and carbon balls from the wick, which are sometimes caused by the burning of foreign objects, such as dust or some components of perfumes. The receptacle is used to prevent the part you eliminate from falling into the melted wax.
- Wick straightener: It is a tool that makes it possible to put out the flame of a candle by sinking the wick into the melted wax and then straightening it out just afterwards. It is used for candles in a container, and pro- vides quick and smokeless extinguishing, while also soaking the wick in wax to enable quicker and more effective subsequent lighting.
- Snuffer: It is an accessory that is used to put out candelabra candles, avoiding the wax splashes that occur when you put the candle out by blowing.
- Tray for candle care: The candle that is going to be treated and the tools to be used are placed on the tray, thus preventing the accessories used from being placed on another surface that could get stained with wax.
The four tools are made from black metal with a velvety feel, they are designed to effectively look after the candle and are organised in an elegant case that makes it easier to keep all the accessories organised. A magnificent gift for any candle lover.
