throughout the burn.

¤ Lightly hug the edges of your pillar candle to ensure

the flame reaches all of the edges.

¤ If any size or shape of candle starts to drip, put it out,

trim the wick and let it harden before relighting.

holder. Add a few drops of water to the bottom of the

Votive holder, for easy cleanup!

may be difficult to relight if burnt halfway.
