How Do I...
Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep.
Never leave a candle unattended.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.
Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.
Do not place lighted candles where they can be knocked over.
Trim candle wicks to 1/4 inch each time before burning.
Always use a candle holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches, and debris at all times.
Do not burn a candle for longer than the manufacturer recommends.
Do not burn candles near drafts, vents, and air currents.

Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container.
Never touch or move a candle when the wax is liquid.
Extinguish pillar candles if the wax pool approaches the outer edge.
Candles should be placed at least three inches apart from one another.
Use the candle snuffer to extinguish candles. This helps prevent hot wax from spattering.
Do not use water to extinguish candles.
It is safer to use flashlights and other battery-operated lights during a power failure.
Never use a candle for light when fueling equipment such as a lantern or kerosene heater.
