Wax melts are one of the most popular ways to add a touch of fragrance to your home. They are easy to use and come in a wide variety of scents and because you can chop and change the fragrance you want on any given day; they are a great alternative to candles.
If you want to get the most out of your wax melts, there are a few things you need to know as with the current climate being difficult in terms of spare money to afford luxury items like wax melts, getting the most out of them is even more important now than it ever was before.
Here are some ideas and a few simple tips on how to get the most out of your wax melts:
Choose the right wax warmer. There are a variety of wax warmers available, so it is important to choose one that is right for you. If you have a small space, you may want to choose a smaller wax warmer. If you have a larger space, you may want to choose a larger, more powerful wax warmer. Make sure you use a quality wax burner as well, as the cheaper, lower quality ones might not only last less time but can reduce the effect of the fragrance.
Use the right amount of wax. The amount of wax you use will depend on the size of your wax burner. A good rule of thumb is to use one cube of wax for smaller burners, but two cubes for the larger ones. ALWAYS start of with the smaller amount and then judge the amount of wax your burner can handle, as it is better to use too little than too much and see an overflow of hot melted wax that you really don’t want to be dealing with.
Use A Decent Supplier. If you are a wax melt addict or use a lot of wax melts, then we are sure that over the years you have tried many different wax melt companies, with some successes and also some disasters. Try to make sure you buy from a company that offers quality products, as if you pay a little more to get something decent the melts will often be more powerful and last longer, so in effect you will get better value for money.
Keep your wax warmer clean. A dirty wax warmer can make your wax melts smell different and sometimes really strange because you can often end up with lots of little bits of used wax mixed in with new wax melt, and if the fragrances are different this will really affect the scent that is being released. Be sure to clean your wax warmer regularly with a damp cloth and keep it in the best condition you can.
Avoid direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can cause your wax melts to melt too quickly and this then releases the fragrance far too quickly. If you are using a wax warmer in a sunny spot, be sure to place it in a shaded area.
Store your wax melts properly. Wax melts should be stored in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing them in direct sunlight or near heat sources as this can affect the quality of the fragrance when you finally come to melt them, which is why storing your melts correctly really is very important and it helps to maintain their structure and their overall quality.
