By shabnam Ahsan

Burning candles is fun. We can light a candle at any time, any place or any occasion. Be it a candle light dinner, a relaxing evening or even in bathroom we can light candles in different colors & shapes & in beautiful holders.

Here is some tips to prolong the fun experience of lightening candles

1…It’s a good idea to keep candles in fridge as cold candles burns slowly or you can put it in fridge an hour prior to light it but to prevent wicks from absorbing moisture wrap them in foil or cling-film first.

2…To avoid the bending or fading the color of the candles never expose them to sunlight or internal spotlight

3… Wrap cooking foil or tissue paper around the bottom of the candle to make the base thicker if it’s too slim to fit perfectly in the holder. The melted wax will soak the tissue & prevent it from burning.

Fresh flowers can freshen up any dull room, & make your day as they express someone’s emotions for you. But the life of fresh flowers is generally short & they are easily perishable. Here are some tips to keep them fresh longer.
1…When you buy flowers try to buy most of them still in bud. They will have longer vase life & you will get the pleasure of watching them slowly open up.
2…Crush and split the bottom of the woody steamed flowers like Rose to take up water easily.
3…. Always cut rose’s stem holding it & sharp scissor under water like water filled sink or a big vessel to prevent getting an air bubble in the stem which can cause the rose heads to drop.
4…To lengthen the life of flowers snap their stems on a slant with a sharp knife to expose more stem surface & wash away the sticky white secretion.
5… Cut the stems another inch or so whenever you change the water. In this way by the end of the week, you will have shorter, but still alive bouquet
6… If you want to extend the life of your flower arrangement than put it in the coldest room of your house before going to sleep.
