Stainless Steel Candle Tool – If you buy candles, this post is for you! Whether you are a total candle connoisseur or just beginning your candle collection, we want you to get the most out of your candle purchase. These common candle tools not only extend the life of your candles, they can improve the fragrance and overall burn performance, too. Read on to learn how to use each one, and discover the benefits they provide to your candle burning experience.
Wick trimmers – The ideal wick length is ¼ – ½ inch, and trimming the wick to that length at purchase and beyond is always recommended. A wick that is too long will cause excess smoke and sooting, plus excess wick debris to collect at the top of the wick, not fun and not safe. An untrimmed can also cause the candle to burn too hot, which can affect the fragrance and cause your candle to burn up faster than necessary. Make your trimming easier by these wick trimmers.
Wick dippers – Candles smell great, but that smoke after you blow them out…not so great. Blowing out candles without any tool can cause excess smoke, a strong burnt aroma, plus can cause hot wax to blow out of the vessel and onto your wall or candle surface. This simply brilliant and easy to use tool provides a smoke-free, cleaner option for extinguishing your candles. Simply dip the lit wick into the melted wax pool, and voila! The flame is extinguished without the hassle of smoke and rogue candle debris.
Candle snuffers – Candle snuffers have been used for centuries for extinguishing candle flames. The cone shaped top keeps air away from the flame which causes it to extinguish. Candle snuffers can be used for all types of candles: scented container candles, tapers, and pillars. This four-piece stainless steel candle tool will help you with your candle experience.
Safety matches – There are countless tools you can use to light your candle, but safety matches are our fav. But what ARE safety matches? A box of safety matches contains specifically designed matches that only ignite when struck on the side of the matchbox, making them inherently safer than strike anywhere matches or matchbooks which house the striker in contact with the matches. Beyond providing a safer match to keep in your home, our safety matches are often at least 4” long, making it easier to light candles that have burned down a few inches into the candle vessel.
