The third thing you can do to make your candles last longer is avoid drafts. This can be harder than it sounds because drafts can come from things that aren’t immediately obvious, like windows, doors, or even the small gap between a door and the floor. It’s best to keep candles away from these areas entirely so they don’t get blown out prematurely.
Other sources of air movement include desk fans, ceiling fans, and air conditioners (central or window units). Candles near these items will burn through their wax a lot faster. In fact, if you place a candle under an overhead fan, you’ll likely see it completely disappear in less than five minutes!
Candles should also not be used in vehicles (including cars and boats) or on airplanes because they contain moving parts that produce drafts as well.
It’s a good idea to not burn your candles for more than 4 hours at a time. If you let the candle burn for too long, it will build up a layer of soot around the globe which is likely to discolor it and ultimately cause your candle to burn out quicker (and inefficiently). Each time you light the candle again, it will build up further layers of soot until you finally won’t be able to see through any part of the glass anymore.
The fifth tip is to follow the instructions on how to store your candle and how long your candles will last. The instructions are usually printed or labeled on the bottom of the candle or box and will tell you how to store it, as well as how long it will last. If you follow these instructions, your candles should last at least half their life span.
First, make sure you’re keeping them out of drafts. This might seem like an obvious step, but you’d be surprised how many people think they’ve burned through a candle much too soon because of this vital mistake.
If you’re wondering how to protect from drafts without completely limiting ventilation or making it difficult to enjoy the scent of the candle itself—don’t worry! You don’t have to go that far. There are plenty of great options out there if you want a more decorative solution than simply putting the candle behind another object (like a vase).
