How do you extinguish your candles? Do you blow them out? If so, do you see that unsightly plume of smoke that seems to go on for quite some time? How about an orange ember?
There's a better way!
A wick dipper is a candle care tool made of metal with a curved end that resembles a hook or a scoop.
To use a wick dipper, use the curved end of the dipper to gently push the burning wick into the melted wax, fully submerging it. Then use the hook to lift the wick back up out of the wax, straighten and center it! By avoiding blowing out the candle, you've just eliminated that smoke and possibly soot from heading toward your ceiling, walls or surfaces.
You've also extinguished the ember which is a small, glowing piece of carbon that remains after the candle has been extinguished. While it may seem harmless, an ember can pose a fire hazard if it falls onto a flammable surface, such as a piece of paper or a cloth. Embers can also reignite the candle's wick, causing the flame to flare up unexpectedly.
