Candle Burning Safety

Candles look beautiful no doubt but since they burn they are a fire hazard too . Some safety measures have to be followed to avoid accidents-

1 Never leave a burning candle unattended.

2 Keep the burning candle out of reach of children and pets.

3 Always burn candles on a fire and heat resistant surface.

4 Keep burning candles away from drafts , curtains and decorations.

5 Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4inches for a good flame.

6 Never burn a candle down , always extinguish it when an inch is left.

7 Extinguish the flame properly after using the candle.
