Candle Safety/Care

Always put candles on a heat resistant surface. TVs are not fire-resistant objects

Position candles away from curtains – or furniture. And keep them out of draughts

Do not put candles under shelves. Make sure there is at least three feet (one metre) between a candle and any surface above it

Keep clothes and hair away. If there is any chance you could lean across a candle and forget it’s there, put it somewhere else.

Keep children and pets away. 

Keep candles apart. Leave at least four inches (10cm) between two burning candles

Do not move a candle when it is burning. 

Do not let anything fall into the hot wax like match sticks

Extinguish candles before leaving a room. Never go to sleep with a candle still burning and never leave a burning candle in a child’s bedroom

Use a snuffer or a spoon to put the candle out. 

Always make sure the candle is extinguished properly. Candles that have been put out can go on smouldering and start a fire.
