Find Living Network smart tips with Kimberly Schlegel Whitman. Kimberly Schlegel Whitman: Whether it’s a party with friends or relaxing evening alone, nothing sets the mode better than candles. So, here is what I call candle care 101, a little trick to extend the life of your candle. Wrap the wick and place your candle in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before burning. A cool candle were burn more slowly, long wicks create black smoke that can mark the ceiling to avoid this trim wicks to a half inch before you like them. To remove wax that is collective to the bottom of your motive, stick your glass motive in the freezer and the wax easily crumples. If wax trips on to your fine linens, simple warm up the wax with the hair dryer then cover it with the cloth that you don’t mind throwing away. Run a warm iron over the cloth on the rock as well here to the cloth. If that doesn’t work check craft or fabric stores for wax promoting products. For more, go to findliving.com/smart tips.
