Care Instructions for luxury loungewear and candles

hand wash (recommended)

Prepare to wash by turning inside out (wash alone or with like clothing)

Wash in a tub with delicate or silk wash, cool or lukewarm water

Submerge in water and gently agitate to evenly distribute soap; let soak for up to 30 mins

Rinse clear, until no longer soapy

Do no ring out, gently press the water out

Please note, your silk may release dyes

gentle machine wash

Wash your Je Mérite silk products with other silk items in the same color family 

Do not wash with other fabrics or colors much lighter or darker 

Place items in a mesh bag with secure closure, this will protect your silk from damage

Load in machine, tub should not be full

add silk wash or delicate detergent

start on delicate cycle, cold temperature

Remove from machine and use a towel to soak up excess moisture

Hang garment or lay flat to dry

Don’t dry in direct sunlight

candle care

the first burn

During the first burn, allow your candle to create a full melt pool, which means the wax has melted completely to the edges of the container

This usually takes about 2-4 hours, depending on the candle size

clean the wax

Before each subsequent use, ensure there is no debris, matches, or wick trimmings in the wax pool

Remove any such materials before relighting the candle

trim the wick

Your wick should be about ¼ inch (0.6 cm) in length

This helps prevent excessive flickering, mushrooming, and soot buildup and long wicks can also cause the candle to burn faster!

burn in intervals

After your first burn, we recommended to burn your candle in intervals of 2-3 hours at a time

This prevents your candle from getting too hot and extends burn life

extinguish responsibly

When you're ready to extinguish the candle, use a snuffer or gently blow it out

Wax can easily spill when melted, make sure to cool and then apply the cap securely

storage and recycling

Store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight

Exposure to heat or sunlight for extended periods can cause the candles to melt or fade

When the wick is burnt away, clean your tin with warm water

Remove all the wax, remove the wick base

Recycle your clean vessel - remember to recycle your packaging too!
