Candles can be a wonderful addition to your home, but it’s important to use them safely to avoid any accidents or fires. Here are some tips for using candles safely:

  1. Always place candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This will prevent the candle from tipping over or starting a fire.

  2. Keep candles away from flammable items such as curtains, paper, and furniture. Make sure to place them at least 12 inches away from these items.

  3. Make sure to trim the wick of the candle to about 1/4 inch before lighting it. This will prevent the flame from getting too high and potentially starting a fire.

  4. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish the candle when you leave the room or go to bed.

  5. Keep candles out of reach of children and pets. This will prevent accidental tipping or burning.

  6. Use a candle snuffer or a spoon to extinguish the candle instead of blowing it out. Blowing out the candle can cause hot wax to splash and start a fire.

  7. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use, including the recommended burn time.

By following these simple tips, you can enjoy your candles safely and avoid any potential accidents or fires.
