Helpful Tips ~
Burn candles 1 hour for each inch of it's diameter. This
allows flame time to melt the wax to the outer edge. Burning
less time will cause the candle to core burn down the middle
& shorten burn time. Example: a 3" wide candle should be
burned for at least 3 hours at a time.
Use toenail clippers to trim wicks in jars in which scissors
Candles will have some fading if left in direct sunlight or
spotlights for extended periods of time.
If a wick becomes to short to light, carve away enough wax
to expose the fresh wick, then trim 1/4 inch off the top of
the candle and burn the candle to reform it's appearance.
Crooked burning: If wick moves off center, use a butter
knife to gently push it back to center. If there is a draft,
rotating the candle can help.
If soot builds up on the inside of container candles-allow
candle to cool and wax to harden and then wipe inside of
container with a baby wipe or paper towel with Windex or
lighter fluid. Allow container to dry completely before
To remove wax from washable fabrics: scrape off excess wax
and then run boiling water through the fabric.
Smoking or Soot~ A well-made candle should not soot or
smoke when burning properly. However, noticeable smoking
will occur whenever a candle’s flame is disturbed, which
allows unburned carbon particles (soot) to escape. In fact,
any candle can be made to smoke by causing the flame to
To minimize candle flickering, trim the wick to 1/4 inch
before lighting, and place burning candles away from vents,
drafts and other strong air currents. Consumers should know
that the minuscule amount of soot produced by all candles is
similar to that given off by toasters and cooking oils in
the kitchen, and does not present a health concern.
About Lead Wicks~ Safety is a top priority at the National
Candle Association, which is why no member of the NCA (which
accounts for 90 percent of all candles made in the U.S.)
uses lead wicks. NCA members voluntarily agreed more than 25
years ago not to use lead wicks, and in 2000 asked all U.S.
candle manufacturers to sign a formal pledge not to use lead
wicks. Some imported candles reportedly have been found to
contain lead wicks. The NCA strongly supports the Consumer
Product Safety Commission’s proposal to ban lead candlewicks
from the U.S. marketplace. Here at Blue Moon Candles we
have always used 100% Cotton wicks with safety in mind!
