Are you careful enough with candles?
Candles are perfect for creating a romantic or relaxing atmosphere or for filling a room with a wonderful scent. However, they should always be used with caution. Nobody wants a special candlelit dinner to turn into a nightmare. Here are some tips for avoiding fire risks around candles.
Choose the right candle holder
Make sure your candle holders are stable and large enough to collect dripping wax. Avoid those that are made of wood or plastic. Be careful with glass candle holders; the heat of the candle could break them.
...and the right candle
Avoid using candles with multiple wicks, as they can produce big, high flames and intense heat. They can also melt quickly and produce large quantities of hot wax.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
