trim your wick! before each burn be sure to trim your wick (cotton & wooden) to approximately 1/8โ€-1/4โ€. a trimmed wick allows the candle to burn the proper amount of fuel aka wax. this will help your candle burn consistently and without any risk of black residue ๐Ÿ’› and donโ€™t worry- if you donโ€™t have a cute wick trimmer, a pair of nail clippers work great
