To get the best burn
Aacute Woodwick soy candles are made from natural resources and, because of this, the wick functions like any wood used in a campfire or fireplace. It burns brightest in a well-ventilated room and thrives on oxygen. We suggest placing it by an open window, but avoid drafts!
The wick should be lit from the bottom – where the wick meets the wax. If it goes out after the first light, don’t worry, it just needs encouragement from the second lighting. Try not to move the candle once it has been lit.
To ensure you get the best burn experience from your wood wick candle burn the candle for 2-3 hours to let the candle melt a pool across the entire surface to the edge of the glass.
Do not burn for longer than 4 hours as the flame can get quite large. If you find that the flame is too large for your personal taste, please wait until wax becomes solid and only trim excess burnt wick by gently breaking it off. This is not recommended as this can make your candle hard to re-light.
All candles have a memory and if you don't burn them correctly each time, you will reduce the life of your candle and cause tunnelling.
Once the wax has been melted, the texture may alter due to the essential oils and natural wood wick staining, this is normal.
Conditioning / Cleaning / Color Transfer / Suede
Please follow the guidelines below to ensure longevity and keep your leather bags looking great.
It is possible that some color transfer will occur with our colored and black leathers. Please take extra care with light colored clothing. Before first use, we suggest rubbing the surface of the bag with a terry towel to lift up any extra dye residue.
Likewise, our lighter colored leathers are more susceptible to picking up color transfer from other materials, such as darker colored leather, denim, and the natural oils from your hands.
Conditioning your bag as outlined below can help to coat the leather and alleviate color transfer.
Because many of the leathers we use are unfinished, we recommend they be conditioned to preserve their beautiful look. Possible conditioners include mink oil, saddle soap, or weather guard spray. Mink oil and saddle soap may cause some darkening to occur and we suggest testing a small amount on an inconspicuous area, such as the inside of the handles, before applying conditioner to the entire bag.
Suede leather may also cause color transfer onto other surfaces or clothing. Please do not condition your suede leather bag or treat with any other type of oil. Weather guard spray is an option that can be used for both leather and suede. Use a bristled suede brush for maintenance and cleaning.
If you would like to clean your bag, we suggest professional leather cleaning, though there are various spot removers and cleaners that can be used for slight stains and general maintenance. Natural leather colors can be especially difficult to get stains out of. Darker, pigmented leather colors will show less wear over time.
