Now you can use Antique Candle Co.® Safety Matches to light your favorite candle! Our uniquely designed jars and matchboxes makes it super easy to ignite a match using the strike paper directly on the container.
Hold the match in your dominant hand, and hold the jar or matchbox in your non-dominant hand with the striking strip facing out. Gently strike in the direction away from your body so the fire ignites and starts away from you, not towards you.
When lighting a candle, hold the match with the fire facing upwards and keep your hand under the flames. Flames move upward, so allow plenty of wood for the fire to burn between your hand and the flame during use.
To extinguish a lit match simply blow it out, drop it into water, or gently shake it out. Ensure the match it completely extinguished before disposing.
Trimming your candle wick is key to candle care! This maximizes the quality and longevity of the candle, and helps prevent the candle from producing a large flame which could lead to soot around the glass jar.
After blowing out a candle flame, allow the wax to cool completely. Never trim a burning candle.
Trim the wick to 1/4" before lighting your candle each time (except before the first burn). Remember to discard all wick trimmings—do not leave debris in a candle jar.
Once trimmed, relight the candle and enjoy!
