How To Use A Candle Snuffer

How To Use A Candle Snuffer

What is a candle snuffer?

A candle snuffer is a small, usually metal, tool used to extinguish candles by pressing the flame into the body of the candle with a concave top. This action cuts off the oxygen supply to the flame and prevents it from burning.

The use of a candle snuffer is often preferred over blowing out candles as it extinguishes the flame more quickly and evenly. In addition, blowing out candles can cause hot wax to splash onto skin or nearby surfaces.

Candle snuffers typically have a long, narrow handle that helps keep the user's hand away from the hot wax. Some designs also include a weight at the end of the handle, which helps to press down on the wick more effectively.

How to use a wick trimmer


First, find a wick trimmer that suits your needs. There are many different styles and designs available, so take some time to find one that you like.

Next, trim the wick to the desired length. Start by trimming off any blackened or charred parts of the wick, then trim it to the desired length - anywhere from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch is typical.

Finally, use the wick trimmer to snuff out the candle. Simply insert the blade of the trimmer into the wax near the wick, and wait for the candle to go out. Once it's extinguished, you can remove the trimmer and clean it off before using it again.

What does a Wick Trimmer do?

A wick trimmer is a tool that is used to trim the wicks of candles. The wicks are the part of the candle that burns and produces the flame. It is important to keep the wicks trimmed so that they do not become too long and cause the flame to become too large. Wick trimmers usually have a small blade that can be used to cut the wick down to the desired size.

Why do you need a Wick Trimmer?

There are a few reasons why it's important to keep your wicks trimmed. First, it helps to prevent soot from forming on the sides of the candle jar. Second, it prevents the flame from getting too close to the wax, which can cause the candle to smoke. And finally, it helps to prolong the life of your candles by keeping them burning evenly.

So if you're serious about making beautiful, long-lasting candles, be sure to invest in a good quality wick trimmer!
