I’m working on a post about removing left-over soy wax from jars, but it’s dawned on me that there is one critical step which comes before this – burning the candle.
Believe it or not, there is a correct and an incorrect way to burn a candle. And once you’ve mastered the correct method, I promise you’ll become a stickler for the rules.
Trimming the wicks prevents build up of particulates in your candles and reduces the blackening of the jar’s rim, while burning the candle to the edge will prevent wax from staying behind, ensuring an even burn each time.
The result? Perfectly burned candles that will leave just enough wax for another project… Stay tuned!
