Got issues? Don’t we all. Luckily we’ve got the rehab your candle needs!
Trimming your wick is the major key for preventing problems and maximising your burning time of heavenly scent flowing throughout your house.
Look, we get it; trimming your wick before every light? Ain’t nobody got time for dat! But you know what takes even more of your precious time? Trying to fix a drowned wick, clean a black sooty rim, or having to buy candles more frequently than you need to. Trust us, this is the investment you need to get the most out of your candle.
Just like when you ask the hairdresser for a trim and you end up with a Kate Gosselin circa-2010 bob, you don’t want to take too much off and not be able to light it.
0.5cm is the sweet spot for optimal burning.
But what actually is 0.5cm? lower your trimmer slightly opened until the very bottom of it just touches the surface level of the wax. gently snip the excess burnt wick off and dispose. Hey presto! you’ve got yourself a 0.5cm wick ready for burning!
Each time you light it. Seems like a pain in the ass, but it takes 10 seconds and will give you a lifetime (or many hours) of scented satisfaction.
