Place Lit Candles Away from Drafts

When placing candles in your home, if you're going to be just using them for decorative purposes, and not burning them; any place is fine. But if you're going to be burning candles, pay attention to things like vents for heating and cooling.

A draft from a vent can change the direction of your candle's flame quickly. Anything sitting too close by, can quickly be ignited without your knowledge, like a curtain, a blanket or a newspaper, etc. laying near by. Never leave a candle unattended. If you're going to leave the room, blow it out. It can always be re-lit when you return. Better to be safe, than sorry.
