How To Keep Your Candle Burning Nicely   + Trim your wick before you light your candle for the first time.  (nail clippers work great) + Let the wax melt all around the edges before you blow it out.  (this prevents tunneling) + Pinch the Ash off each time before you light your candle the next time. (this prevents the wick from burning out prematurely) + Enjoy a natural and clean burn!
