Do I need to buy a cup for the refill tealights?
You’ll have a better experience if your refill tealight is in a cup. It could be in one of our glass cups, or it could be in a reused plastic or aluminum cup. Or it could be in another kind of snug fitting tealight holder. You’ll want it to be one that can be easily cleaned though!
How long to let your tealight candle burn?
Our tealight candles typically burn for about 4-5 hours if they are lit and left until they are done. Tealights are best burned in one session, because if they are extinguished too close to the bottom (half way down or more) then they don’t build up enough heat to melt and draw the wax before the wick is burned up.
Why is there sometimes a little wax left over around the edges?
It’s typically based on temperature. Cool ambient temperatures, cold windowsills, or marble countertops can draw heat away leaving wax unconsumed. Because tealight candles and wick are so small they are more susceptible to ambient temperature than other candles.
Can your plastic and aluminum cups be reused?
Sure! Just make sure that any leftover wax, and the wick tab are removed first. Inspect any reused cups to ensure they are not cracked or otherwise compromised before use.
Why do you sell tealights in aluminum and plastic and glass cups?
Each one has different advantages. The clear cups have the best glow, while aluminum are best in specific artistic or utility holders with a tight diameter. Our glass cups are growing in popularity with people looking to reduce plastic use.
Do you offer tealights in bulk?
Yes! All three varieties of our tea lights are available in case sizes with a built-in discount.
If I use a refill tealight in my own cup won't it make a mess?
Yes, if you put a refill tealight with no cup inside of a decorative tealight holder then you will have to clean wax and the wick tab out of that holder which may be difficult depending on the style of holder. We recommend reusing a plastic or aluminum cup or purchasing our Glass Tealight Cups. You can also learn how to clean tealight holders here
