How to care for your rawLight Candles.

There’s nothing tricky to taking care of your rawLight candles. A few simple rules and some suggestions for you and your customers will help. A little common sense is all it takes to keep your candles looking lovely in your retail shop.

Always store your rawLight candles in a cool, dull lighting and dry place to avoid colour blending and fading.

    Always store your rawLight candles away from any aromas to avoid the candle absorbing the scent.

    Tapers or dinner rawLight candles should be stored flat to preventing warping.

    When using your rawLight dinner and taper candles please remove them from direct sunlight or hot room.

    rawLight splashed candles should be used within 6 to 8 months from purchase.

    When burning your rawLight candles always keep the candlewicks very short 0.5cm and continue to cut the wicks throughout the duration of use. Although our rawLight wicks are self-trimming always pay attention when using.

    Avoid placing your rawLight candles where they will be directly exposed to sunlight or harsh indoor lighting, such as a spotlight. Candles may fade if they are left in bright light for an extended period.

    You can remove dust and fingerprints from a rawLight candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth (an old stocking works well). The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water.

    When burning rawLight candles it’s better to have them in a protected area away from air movement. Hurricanes or votive glasses are effective and protect the rawLight candle flame for better burning quality.

    Avoid burning rawLight candles in any glass item not specifically designed for candles. Glass candleholders are specifically manufactured to withstand the temperature changes that occur when burning a candle. Everyday glassware is not designed for burning candles.

    Votive holders will clean more easily afterwards if you add a few drops of water to the glass before inserting the rawLight candle.

    Caution: Don’t add more than a few drops of water and don’t add water unless you intend to burn the rawLight candle immediately afterward. Over time, a candlewick could absorb the water and the candle won’t burn properly.

    Never use a knife or a sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass votive holder. It might scratch or weaken the glass, causing it to break upon subsequent use.

    Wax drippings can be removed from most candleholders by running hot water over them into a bucket. Once wax has harden put it in the bin.

    We prefer removing wax by first placing the candleholder in the freezer for an hour or so. This allows the wax to shrink and easily pop out when the candleholder is removed from the freezer.

    Heat, light, fragrance, and other agents can affect candle dyes. These harmless reactions can slightly alter a candle’s colour over time but will not affect the rawLight candle’s burn properties or safety.

    The candle dyes can stain furniture, wood; some poorly made glassware and plastic. We do recommend you ALWAYS place your candles on

    GLASS plates and candle wares to protect your home furnishing.

    Displaying your rawLight candles on plates with shells, stones, cut glass or flowers etc makes a beautiful home. Always beware not to put them too close to the candle flame.
