Candle Care

Once you own a Doozy, it can be part of your household for many years. Following the tips below will ensure that you will keep your candle burning for longest time possible.

Simple care tips for your Doozy candle:

  1. Always trim the wick to 1/4″ when you light your candle
  2. When you blow out your candle, make sure the wick is erect and not buried in liquid wax.
  3. Keep the candle out of drafts, when possible. You will find that once the candle is burned down a little, you can burn them outdoors nicely.
  4. Never use a tea light with a metal bottom as an insert. The metal heats up and will destroy the shape of your candle. Use a votive instead.
  5. Use a refillable butane BBQ lighter to easily light your Doozy, matches can leave debris.
  6. Refrain from putting foreign material in your Doozy, especially matches. If by chance something gets in it, scoop it out gently with an old spoon when the wax is liquid.
  7. Burn the Mini, Midi, Doozy and Chelsea sizes for a minimum of 3 hours and Fatboys a minimum of 5 hours to achieve the longest candle life. Burning your candle for 1 or 2 hours at a time will make your candle burn down a lot quicker and create a narrow hole at the centre of the candle.
  8. When moving or holding the candle, do so from the bottom and not the top of the candle, especially if it has been burning for a while. The shell will become softer and you may damage it if held from the top.
  9. Always practice safe burning. Do not leave a candle burn unattended.

Take good care of your Doozy – it will bring you burning pleasure for many years.
