Candle safety


  1. Keep them away from draughts and anything that can easily catch fire like furniture or curtains.
  2. Don’t let candles fall over! You need to keep candles firmly upright in a proper holder.
  3. Don’t let anything fall into the hot wax, like matchsticks.
  4. Use a ‘snuffer’or a spoon to put candles out. It’s safer than blowing them,which can send sparks and hot wax flying.
  5. Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.
  6. Always place candles on a heat-resistant surface. Night lights and tea lights can melt plastic surfaces like TV tops and bathtubs.
  7. Don’t lean across candles! You could set fire to your clothes or hair.
  8. Always leave at least four inches (10cm) between two burning candles.
