Before burning

Trim the wicks regularly. They should not exceed 0,5cm (1/4 inch).

See the video


During burning

Wait until the whole surface becomes liquid before putting out your candle

NEVER exceed one hour of burning once the whole surface is liquid.
A metal candle that burns for too long may overheat and result in a candle fire !

NEVER burn the last 1cm (1/2 inch) of wax to avoid flames burning against the glass.
A flame burning against the glass may cause the glass to break !


After burning

Before the wax becomes totally solid, reposition the wicks vertically to their initial place. Regularly clean the inside of the candle to avoid the appearance of soot.
