The right tool makes every task easy. This is the essential one for maintaining your candle's wick. This wick trimmer clips wicks to 1/8" to ensure a clean, even flame for a longer lasting candle and maximum fragrance output. It’s long enough to reach the bottom of most Jar Candles. The wick trimmer's design lets you remove the clipped wick safely. You can't do that with a pair of scissors!
Here's how to use a wick trimmer:
- Place the bottom of the trimmer flush with the surface of the candle
- Rock the trimmer back so that the “elbow” now rests on the surface of the candle.
- Ensure that your trimmer is at a 45-degree angle to get the proper wick length. This will prevent the wick from being cut too short, causing the candle to burn improperly.
- Bring the two handles together to trim the wick. Discard the remnant wick before lighting
