Did the tapers from last night’s romantic dinner wind up dripping onto the tabletop? Apply petroleum jelly around the edges, let sit for a minute and then wipe away with a soft cloth.
Also, rub some jelly inside the candle holder before placing the candles. That will make it easier to lift the candle out if the holder becomes coated with wax.
