How to keep candle jars clean and soot-free?

Looking after your candles while they are burning makes it easier to reuse them. This is the best way to take care of your candles while they are in use.

 

Trim the wick regularly

Trim the wick to a length of 6 mm before each burn. This will result in the candle not leaving as much black soot residue inside the candle container.

 

Wipe off the soot residue regularly

If any soot is left inside the candle container, use a paper towel to wipe away the soot once the candle has cooled completely.

 

Burn the candle evenly

If you burn the candle evenly, it is easier to remove the wax from the candle when it is finished.

 

When burning any new candle for the first time, be sure to burn the candle for at least 2 hours (depending on its size) and then burn it for 1 to 2 hours at a time. This ensures that the candle burns evenly and does not "tunnel" down.


How to remove the remaining candle wax?

As a safety precaution, it is recommended that you stop burning the candle when only about 10 mm of wax remains.

 

I have read about many different ways to remove leftover wax from candle jars, but the easiest way I have found is to use a Chux wipe or even a paper towel to carefully scoop the wax out after pouring out any liquid wax that was soft the last time you burned the candle while the wax was still.

 

Usually, the bottom of the wick comes out easily, but sometimes you may need to use a butter knife to pry the bottom of it off the container. Be careful not to scratch the inside of the container, as this may remove some paint from the jar (if it has paint).

 

It is up to you whether to remove any sticky labels from the outside of the jar or leave them on the jar. If you want to remove the label from the jar, use a little eucalyptus oil to remove the sticky residue.

 

After removing the remaining wax and labels, wash the jars with warm soapy water, and voila, your candle jars are now ready for new storage!
