Safety Warnings:

• NEVER leave a burning candle unattended.
• Keep away from any flammable material.
• Burn on a non-flammable surface.
• Always trim the wick to 1/4 inch before every burn.
• If wick mushrooms, extinguish, let cool and trim to 1/4 inch.
• Always handle Light the Night candles by the handle.
• Do NOT burn after the wax melt pool reaches 1/2 inch deep. 
• If wick is left burning with no wax remaining the glass jar may overheat and crack, letting the flame escape.

Clever Tips:

• Keep candles away from drafts, which prevent un-even burning.
To remove wax from washable fabrics, scrape off excess wax and run boiling water through the material.
• Remove wax from holders by running very hot water over them.
• Remove wax from counter tops by letting it cool and using a spatula then wipe with goo-gone.
• If wick is trimmed too short, carve away enough wax in a circle around the wick up to the jar edge.
• When blowing out a jar candle, covering the jar with its lid will prevent filling the room with smoke.
• Candle wax will fade if left in direct sunlight for a long time. 
• Store candles in a  cool dark area.
• A candle that is lit and extinguished will light more quickly. (consider this if your wedding includes a candle ceremony)
• Burning candles on a hot stove may melt the wax from the candle bottom.
• Candle fragrance may actually become trapped if candle is placed in the corner of a room.
• A fan can be used to circulate fragrance throughout the house. NEVER point the fan at the candle.
