Use of wax lighting tapers with a high quality lighter/extinguisher is highly recommended for the trouble-free lighting and extinguishing of candles.
To prevent wax buildup at the end of the candlelighter:
- While burning be sure to only expose 1/4" of the taper at a time. This will stop the flame from getting too large and melting wax back into the lighter causing it to clog.
- After extinguishing flame, extend the taper while the wax is still hot. This clears the end of the tube.
