Before your new summer candle arrives, there are a few tips you can follow to make sure that you use your purchase safely as well as some facts that you might not have known about burning candles.

Are candle fumes dangerous?

According to Metro, "A study at South Carolina State University found that paraffin wax candles give off harmful fumes linked to lung cancer and asthma, although researchers say it would take years of regular use for it to be a significant health risk."

Will candle wax wash out of clothes or carpet?

If you get a little bit of candle wax on any fabric, you will be able to remove this by rubbing vegetable oil on it. We couldn't believe it either...

What candles keep bugs away?

We'd recommend using an orange-scented candle to keep bugs away indoors. If you're struggling with flies while you're eating on your garden table, then a citronella candle is a fantastic option.

Did you know:

• A candle shouldn't produce smoke when it's burning.

• You shouldn't actually blow a candle out.

• A candle maker is also known as a chandler - who knew?
