Trim your wick to about 6mm before each and every burn with our Club Candle wick trimmer and you will see your candle at its glowing glory every time.
This will also prevent the wicks from becoming too long and 'mushrooming'. Candles with trimmed wicks last longer, you will lower the chances of a smoking candle and you will avoid the nasty black soot build up around the rim of the vessel caused by a wick that’s too long.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY WICK IS TOO LONG?
You will see that your wick is getting too long if it forms a mushroom shape or if you are starting to see it smoke. If your candle is lit, blow it out, trim the wick and relight for a better burn. We like to wait until the wax has gone hard and then trim as this prevents the excess wick falling in the hot wax which is difficult to remove without making a mess.
