Want your candle to last longer? There's 1 thing you have to do!


You get a new candle and want to use it, but it's unlikely you do what you're supposed to do first and foremost-- trim the wick. Yankee Candle's website states, "Keeping their wicks trimmed properly will help your candles burn fully and last longer. Specifically, your candle's wick should be trimmed after every four hours of burn time." And it's not just a ploy to get you to buy more candles. Vogue recently interviewed candle-maker Alia Raza, who says you should first cut your candle's wick to about a third of an inch, and that the first time you burn a candle it should be for "about two hours or more" so that "the whole surface of will burn evenly so it won't create those dips." This two-hour rule ensures the entire top layer of wax melts, so it dries smoothly instead of creating a hole that your wick can get lost in.  (Yahoo
