How To Store Candles

Whether you’re moving or switching up your decor for the season, it’s important to make sure you’re carefully storing your candles so they don’t break or get nicked. If you’re looking for a green and easy way to store them, Green And Frugal Living has a great tip you should follow.

When it comes to protecting taper candles, simply place them in a cardboard paper towel tube. If the candle is smaller, like a votive, use a toilet paper roll. We recommend first wrapping them in tissue paper -- it’s better to be safe than sorry!

We like this idea because it repurposes those cardboard tubes, which just so happen to fit candles perfectly.
