Choose to place the candle in a safe spot: 1. Avoid drafts, vents or air currents to prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting and excessive dripping. 2. Never burn the candle near anything that can catch fire like drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations and furniture. 3. Keep candles out of the reach or places where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
