Candle Care

Burn, baby, burn. 
 
With a little tender love and care, you can make sure your Nette candle burns cleanly for its whole life. Read on for our tips and tricks for the perfect Nette experience. 
 
Before You Burn: 
 
Trim that wick! The ideal height is about ⅛ inch above the wax. Trimming your wick will help your candle burn efficiently and avoid mushrooming, which can lead to excess soot on your vessel and in your home. Just be sure to let your candle cool down completely before attempting any cuts. 
When you light your candle for the first time, allow it to burn until the entire surface of wax has melted — this will prevent tunneling and memory rings. 
 
Know When To Stop: 
 
Keep your burn to about four hours at a time. Once your candle has only about ½ inch of wax left in the vessel, it’s time to retire it, clean out the wax, and order your next Nette candle.  
 
Keep It Clean: 
 
Keep your candle’s surface free of debris like soot and wick trimmings.
