Candle Care Guide
ALWAYS KEEP A BURNING CANDLE WITHIN SIGHT.
KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN AND PETS.
NEVER BURN ON OR NEAR ANYTHING THAT CAN CATCH FIRE.
ALWAYS TRIM YOUR WICK TO 1/4” EACH TIME THE CANDLE IS LIT.
This maximizes the burn time of your candle while reducing your chances of soot. Use a sharp wick trimmer or scissors to ensure a clean cut.
Always burn your candle on a heat-resistant, flat, stable surface.
Trapp votive candles will liquefy when burning. Always place in snug-fitting candle holder to maintain the original shape of the candle. Trapp votives should not be burned longer than 2 hours at a time.
Follow the instructions regarding how long to burn your candle at a time. Most candles are 4 hours or less but it depends on the size of the candle.
Allow the entire top of your candle to liquefy each time you light your candle — this can take several hours. Candles have a memory — if not allowed to pool completely they can start to tunnel causing excess wax to build up on the edges of the glass.
Don't have a few hours to burn your candle?
Although nothing can replace the ambiance of a lit candle, wax melts can be used to quickly fill your room with fragrance and can be turned on/off whenever you like.
Be sure to burn candles in a well-ventilated room but be sure to keep candles away from drafts and vents. If your candle burns unevenly after trimming and centering the wick, your candle is likely in a draft. We recommend changing location of the candle.
Immediately after extinguishing the candle, use tweezers to keep your wick centered. Never allow a burning wick to touch the glass.
Discontinue use of candle when 1/4” of wax remains to prevent the burning wick from getting too close to the glass.
