Candle Tips

Raindance Pillar Candle


  • When burning a pillar candle for the first time, use the diameter of the candle as a timing guide.  3" diameter candles for three hours, 4" diameter for four hours, etc. 
  • Always use a pillar candle on a candle plate or in a container.

Floating Candles

  • To set, put the desired amount of water in your container.  Next, pinch the wick and set the candle gently in the water, keeping the wick dry.
  • Use a dash of white vinegar in the water to prevent a "ring" in the holder.
  •   To remove a floating candle from a tall container, simply tilt the container to pour out the water; the candle will float out.
Votives, Votive Candles
Votive Candles


  • Votive candles liquefy and must be burned in a votive cup.
  • Votive glass will clean easily if you remove the bottom label of the votive candle prior to lighting.
  • Clean smoke off votive glass with liquid paraffin on a soft cloth.

General Tips

  • Never leave a lit candle unattended!
  • Remove wax from candle holders by placing the holder in the freezer for 15-20 minutes, then remove and the wax will easily chip off.
  • All candles will fade if left in light for an extended period of time.
  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch.  Long or cooked wicks cause uneven burning and dripping.
