Candle Safety

The use of wax or paraffin candles for home decoration is commonly known across the world. It adds an exciting touch to most rooms of any house, like the bathroom or even the study and are available in many attractive styles, colors, and designs.

These candles also add beauty, fragrance, and comfort to your home and office. Like most things in life, candles can bring along some unwanted baggage when we buy them for home use. Here are a few candle safety tips to keep in mind when lighting up a candle or two for that special occasion:

Firstly - try to buy candles without lead wicks. Many commercial candles are made with a lead wire wick that burns when the candle is lit. Many of use are unaware that the smoke from combustible lead can be toxic, especially if one is frequently exposed to it. Therefore look for candles that have thread wicks that are non-toxic for burning.

Secondly (mostly neglected) - never leave burning candles unattended. Make sure an adult is in the room at all times to monitor a candle's flame. Even a little breeze from an open window or other unexpected occurrences may let the flame catch nearby surfaces and cause a fire.

Thirdly - Always try and keep candles out of the reach of pets and children. Obviously, lit candles pose a danger, but even unlit candles can also tempt children to find matches or a lighter and burn the candles for their own use. If the candles are used as decorator pieces, make sure the kids know never to light them.

Lastly -  Do not burn too many candles at one time, although romantic images of candle-laced bedrooms or candle-adorned bathtubs may encourage our use of dozens of lovely candles on a single occasion, this can be dangerous, since one person may not be able to watch all at once prevent sputtering or spreading if one should pop.



Always make sure that you extinguish each candle carefully by using a bell-shaped extinguisher with a long handle. This will reduce the amount of residual smoke that can linger after blowing them out. Also check the wick to be sure no glowing spots remain. If the candle comes with a cover, you may want to replace it as an extra security precaution.

Tip:  Try to place scented candles in the bathroom in order to eliminate odors. Functional candles should be kept on hand in case of power failures. These useful products continue to play a significant role in everyday life, so use yours with caution and enjoy them to the max.
