Here at House of Harris we have created a list of essential tips for how to care for your wax burner, so you can keep on enjoying experimenting with your favourite fragrances.

Like any fragrance, making sure you set up your melt burner properly every time you use it will ensure that you get the most out of your fragrance, and also that you are using it safely. Whether you are using an electric or classic wax burner ensure that the top dish is clean, and that your burner is dust free. This helps to prevent that unpleasant burning smell when your wax starts to heat up and allows a great pool to form. Once clean, place your wax burner on a level surface and out of reach of pets and children.
2 – Choose The Correct Tealight
If you are using a classic wax burner, choosing the perfect tealight to place underneath your wax tart is essential. Yankee Candle unscented tealights are highly recommended as they help to provide a steady burn with a low, controlled flame. This helps your wax melt evenly and most importantly of all, safely.
3 – Break The Wax Up

It can be difficult to break your Yankee Candle Wax Tart up, especially as they look so beautifully presented, but this helps the wax melt much quicker. This means that your home will be filled with your favourite fragrance instantly and also makes mixing certain fragrances much easier.
4 – Remove All Of The Wax Once Finished
When your delightful wax tart fragrance has eventually come to the end of its life, it is essential that you remove all of the wax safely and effectively. Never touch the wax when it is hot or attempt to pour the melted wax down the drain. When it cools the wax solidifies again and blocks the drain causes a lot of expensive damage. The best way to remove the wax is to wait until it is cool and then turn your burner back on for about a minute. This allows the bottom of the wax to melt and slide out easily. After it is removed, place the wax in the bin and simply wipe the dish with a damp cloth to remove any excess wax. Once dry, the burner is then ready to use again.
And there you have it, four Yankee Candle tips that will make using your wax burner effortless.
