  2. Never allow the candle flame to come in contact with the side of the glass.
  3. Do not use if glass is cracked, chipped or broken.
  4. Never introduce liquids or foreign objects into candle and keep it free of wick trimmings, matches and any flammable materials.
  5. If the glass becomes blackened while burning, extinguish candle, allow to cool and clean with a dry paper towel.
  6. When not in use, keep candle covered to avoid dust build-up.
  7. Use a candle snuffer to properly extinguish a candle flame. If not available, blow gently and steadily on the flame until it is extinguished.
