To extend the life of your candle:
1- Before lighting your candle, straighten out the wick and trim it to 1/4 inch - 5 mm.
2- Every time the candle is lit, try to make the wax melt over the whole surface before extinguishing it
3- Never burn the candle completely--throw it out when 1 to 2 mm of wax remains in container
4- Avoid exposing it to drafts
