Candle Burning Times

The candle burn times listed below may vary with conditions in the home. Drafts, the motion of ceiling fans, and other factors may affect candle burn times. Keep the wick centered for even consumption of the wax and to prevent possible heat damage to the holder. If the flame is getting lost in the wax pool, extinguish the flame, pick up the glass with a pot holder or cloth, and carefully pour excess wax into a lined wastebasket or metal container. Relight the candle after it has cooled completely. Keep wicks centered and trimmed to 1/4-inch to prevent the glass container from breaking. Never burn a candle to a point less than 1/2-inch from the candle bottom.
