When I burn my candles there's always still some left on the sides or bottom. Is there a way to use up every last bit of my candle?
Jade: Hey Kylie!
Everyone wants to get the most for their money so this is a great question! Here are a few steps that can help you get the most out of your candle.
Prevent tunneling - You can do this by making sure you let the whole top layer of your candle melt each and every time you burn it.
Trim your wick before each burn for a steady flame. A routine trim will prevent too tall, bent, or mushroom wicks and will ensure an even and steady burn.
Those tips should help with melting all the wax down the sides but often times you will have a bit of wax left in the bottom of your candle. You can't really avoid that because you don't want to burn you candle so low that the bottom of the jar overheats. What you can do to enjoy that last bit is to heat it up on a candle warmer. You could also melt that wax down on a candle warmer, remove the wicks and pour the wax into an ice cube tray and leave to cool to make little wax melts!
Hope those tips help! Enjoy your Jackpot Candles :)
Here's a snippet from that interview that I just loved! It really shows the genuine, family-oriented guy that he is:
"Chris says he was 100% inspired by his daughter, how cute! She loves surprises but also a relaxing soak in the tub so he figured why not put something fun into some candles and bath bombs?! The first bath bomb he developed had a necklace hiding inside which she absolutely adored and Jackpot Candles was born!"
Jackpot Candles is a family-owned & operated business and I'm so grateful that I get to work with such a cool bunch of people every day. They've definitely made me feel like I'm a member of the family <3
