Why won’t my candle stay lit? Is there something wrong with my wick?

In order to ensure that your wick doesn’t keep snuffing out, keep your wick trimmed to ¼ of an inch.  If your wick is too short, it may get drowned out in the pool of melted wax.  If your wick is too long, the flame may also be too long and will be more prone to get blown out by a draft.
