Frequently asked questions about tea light holders

Are tea light holders only for tea lights?

No! Don't limit yourself by only using tea light candles. You can also fill the glass inserts with candy, nuts, fruit, cheese, or another type of food.

You could use LED candles, votive candles, or even mini pots full of succulents or flowers too. Get creative with your personalized tealight holders and let your own style and preferences shine through.

How do I clean and maintain tea light candle holders?

Care for your wooden candle holders as you care for any other piece of wooden decor. We typically suggest wiping them down with a damp cloth as needed. You can also feel free to dust them while you do your weekly dusting routine.

If there is some wax residue, wait for it to cool completely and then gently scrape it off with a plastic or wooden tool. If there is still wax left over, remove it with a bit of warm soapy water.

Are tealight candle holders safe to use?

Yes, tealight holders are generally safe when used properly. Make sure to place them on stable, heat-resistant surfaces and away from anything flammable.

Always keep an eye on burning candles and don't leave them unattended. You should also be careful when handling the glass inserts as they have a tendency to heat up when used.

You can also use battery-operated tealight candles instead of real candles. They'll give you the ambiance you're looking for, and you won't have to worry about a potential fire.
