Trimming your wick is the first crucial step in candle care. You want to trim your wick to about ¼” in length before your first burn and then after each subsequent burn. Trimming the wick helps prevent “mushrooming” which is that little black bulb that forms after burning. The mushroom can cause your wick to smoke, soot and flare. All of these things can lead to uneven burning, unsafe sparking and dirty looking candles.
