If you go out – blow out the candle!
- Never leave lit candles unattended. it's important to put burning candles out when you leave a room and make sure they’re completely out at night before you go to bed (or when you are about to fall asleep).
- Avoid using candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep.
- Keep candles away from anything that may burn.
- Keep candles out of the reach of children who may want to play with them as well as away from all animals that may overturn them.
- Use candlesticks that are stable and will not fall over easily under the weight of the candle.
- Place the candlesticks on a strong, heat-resistant surface. Candles in glass or aluminum containers heat up during prolonged burning and can seriously heat the surface they are placed on.
- Light the candles carefully. Keep your hair and clothes away from flames.
- Do not bend over candles – your clothes and/or hair may catch fire.
- Do not burn a candle completely – blow it out before it burns completely (i. e. before getting down to the wick holder or container).
- Always trim the wicks. Long or crooked wicks are more likely to burn unevenly, drip or flare. Keep the wicks trimmed up to ¼” or 6-8 mm for optimal candle burning.
- If you notice your candle has a high, flickering flame, it's time you put it out and trim the wick.
- Do not allow anything to get into the melted wax. Broken pieces of matches, etc. can act as a secondary wick and significantly increase the height and temperature of the flame.
- Do not move candles after they are lit.
- Never use candles when the power supply is switched off. Use your phone flashlight or another type of battery light.
- Always light candles in a well-ventilated room, without draughts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, soot and dripping and wax spills.
- Do not burn several candles close together, as this might cause melting between them and increase the flame size.
- Candles must be placed in a stable and secure candlestick.
- Hand-held candles must NOT be passed from one person to another while lighted.
- When lighting candles during a religious service, have people with an unlit candle light their candles from a firmly and steadily placed already lit candle. The use of a burning candle to light candles from one person to another is dangerous.
- Lit candles should not be placed on window cills where blinds or curtains might catch fire.
- Candles placed on or near tables, altars or sanctuaries, should always be under constant supervision by an adult.
- If a candle has to burn continuously, make sure the open flame is closed in a glass container, the candle is placed in a sink, on a metal tray or in a deep basin filled with water.
- Places of worship MUST be equipped with a smoke and fire detection system.
