Wick Trimmers ~
For any candle lovers out there, a wick trimmer is simply the most essential tool. As you may know (or not!), when first lighting your candle you must always trim the wick to 1/4''. You might wonder why not use a pair of scissors to trim the wick, right? Well scissors are just not designed for that, especially when the wick becomes hard to reach. A wick trimmer has a clipping mechanism that runs parallel to the surface of the wax. This allows you to trim your wick cleanly and without debris fallout. They also feature a curved shape which allows you to use it in any deep or small hole.
