Soya and rapeseed are natural and therefore burn differently from paraffin candles. By using your Klinta Candle in the right way you’ll be able to enjoy your candle safely and for the maximum time possible.
Never leave a candle unattended or light one where there’s a draught. Trim the wick to about 6mm before you light the candle. Keep the candle’s surface free from foreign material like match fragments or pieces of trimmed wick. Allow the candle to burn as long as it takes for the wax to melt across the whole of its surface. This will prevent your Klinta Candle from burning unevenly – resulting in so-called tunneling where a crater forms in the middle of the wax.
Ensure that the wick remains centred and that it doesn’t touch the inside of the glass.
Because the the cotton wick hasn’t been treated with alcohol or another flammable chemical, a ’mushroom’ of carbon can form during burning. This can easily be trimmed using Klinta’s Wick Trimmer before you light your candle.
Let the candle cool for an hour or so, trim the wick and light it again. Avoid moving or touching your candle while the wax is still liquid and don’t have it lit for more than 5 hours at a time. By storing your candle in a cool(ish) and dry place, out of direct sunlight, it won’t soften or crack. The ideal temperature range for storing your Klinta Candle is between 0-28°C.
