Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing. Never burn a candle on or near anything flammable. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc. Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets. Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking. Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times. Burn the candle no longer than 4 hours at a time. Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans or other currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and soot. Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire. Don’t burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when ½ inch remains. Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid. Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use. Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle NOT the jar lid, water, or other. Ensure candle is cool before replacing lid. Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting. Never use a candle as a night light.
