To Let Candles Last Longer.

If you want your candles to burn longer paint with colorless nail polish varnish. This will prevent them from burning to quickly or unevenly. The varnish will take about 3 days to harden but it is well worth the trouble.

    Thanks for reading my hint. Nope it is not toxic at all. The Varnish helps to make a reservoir for the wax thereby making them last longer. the varnish does not burn as the flame never gets there.

    Would it be toxic? The fumes? It sounds good though!
