Set a Timer to Put Out Candles

I enjoy seeing my candles lit. It gives a warm cosy feeling on a cold winter's day. But how many times have we heard about candles left unattended causing fires.


My tip for today is to "put on the stove timer when you light the candle, for the length of time you want them lit". This will remind you to blow them out. If this tip will prevent one fire, then its worth the effort.

If my oven is warm from baking and I have wet towels from dishes, I put them in the oven to dry. But... I always set the timer and I always put a note by the timer so I remember what it is for.

Do the same for your candle ... put a note by the timer. Also, to burn your candle properly, it is one hour per inch of candle. That is width, not length. So, burn a candle appropriate to the time you have and you will be happier with the candles. This prevents all of the ridges inside the candle.
