Why should you get a candle wick trimmer to go along with your candle purchase?


Here are a few reasons:


  • • Keeping the candle wick trimmed helps control the amount of melted wax (i.e., fuel) that the candle has access to, which helps limit the amount of soot it creates. The trimmed wick also helps the candle burn more evenly, controlling the soot and prolonging the life of the candle.


  • • Trimming the candle wick down to 1/4-in. can help you prevent problems like black flames, flames that are too tall, black smoke stains on glass candle holders and wax that’s burning too quickly.


  • • The wick is the braided cotton that conveys the fuel, which is the wax to the flame. If the wick is too tall, it could supply too much fuel to the flame too quickly, creating excess smoke and soot. A wick that’s the right height will create an even, steady burn so you can enjoy the glow and scent for hours. A trimmed wick also gives the flame a nice, even shape. A wick that’s too large will convey too much fuel (wax) to the fire, and the carbon buildup creates a black “mushroom cap” on the flame.


  •  If you’ve trimmed the wick too short for it to light, you can expose more wick by melting the surrounding wax with a wand lighter, then slowly pouring out the melted wax. Or use a butter knife to gently carve out the wax around the wick.
