Soak your candles in salt water for a few hours! Yes, this sounds strange, we totally agree. But it works! The salt removes some of the excess water stored in the candles and helps to prevent leaking as there is less liquid released when burning after applying salt.

You can also try placing coarse grains of salt at the wick in order to prevent leakage and to make the candles burn longer.

Make sure to give your candles enough time to dry out after applying the saltwater, otherwise, they won’t burn properly. If you are in a hurry and you don’t have the time to apply saltwater, you can also place the candles in a refrigerator. This also improves the longevity of the candle while still ensuring it burns properly.
