This candle wick trimmer is a must-have for candle lovers! Using a wick trimmer extends the life of your candle, reduces soot, and ensures a safe burn. The angle on the wick trimmer makes it easy to maintain wicks in candles of all stages, even those that have burned towards the bottom of the jar. The angle also makes wick trimmers ideal for wood wick candles for a straight cut and a clean, even burn.
Why not just use scissors? If you have handled a burnt wick before, you've noticed that the black marks (carbon buildup) on the wick or the jar itself. When you trim the wick after you blow out your candle, this wick trimmer will prevent carbon buildup from falling into the wax melt pool.
In short, taking proper care of your candles is much easier and cleaner with a wick trimmer than it is when using scissors. Always trim the wick to 1/4" before each use.
