Trimming wicks to 1/4" before lighting your soy candle will ensure a clean burning, smooth flame, and helps get the most burn time from your candle.
The wick trimmer can get down into the jar easier than scissors and cleaner than using your fingers. Trim off the black "mushroom" with your cool wick trimmer and catch the soot on the little platform on the trimmer and fling it out of the jar without getting any soot on your candle. Keeps the wax clean and lovely.
Snuff out your candle with the matching wick snuffer tool. Cleaner than blowing melted wax onto the sides of your jar or even outside of the jar. Use your snuffer tool instead of burning a mark on the inside of your candle lid.
