Trimming your candle wicks is an essential part of candle care.
Keeping your candle wick trimmed helps control the amount of melted wax the candle has access to, which helps limit the amount of soot it creates. Limiting the amount of soots also creates a cleaner burn for vessel, wax and air. Before re-lighting your candle trim your wick to 1/4". The trimmed wick also helps the candle burn more evenly prolonging the life of the candle.
