Ask Aunt Laura – I bet you have been putting a candle out wrong your entire life!

Candles can add such a wonderful ambiance to your home! They add beauty, some have a lovely scent, and can even aid in creating a romantic mood.

But as soon as you blow it out, smoke fills the space taking away all the ambiance and leaving behind a smokey odor.

So much for using a scented candle!

Grab yourself a wooden bamboo skewer (or something you don’t mind getting wax on) and let me show you how to solve that smokey problem forevermore.
