Male: Essential information from Fine Living. Male: Candles are great for entertaining. People like to buy 2x3s, 3x3s, 3x6s because you can even create candle escapes. You want to keep flames away from drafts that will cause spillovers. You’ll always want to use a candle holder because it catches any spills and it protects your tabletops. When you purchase a candle, the first thing to do before lighting it is trim the wick to a quarter of an inch. When you light the candle, the first burn is the most important burn of a candle’s life. You want it to go to the edge of the candle. It’ll take about four hours to get the pool large enough. Now, if you blow the candle out within half an hour of lighting it, your candle will tunnel and tunneling means that the little pool that you have created, that’s as far out the candle will burn so it will just burn down and you will ruin and waste a candle.
