With candle snuffers from Steelz, you can snuff out any candle easily - without making a mess or blowing smoke everywhere. These beautiful candle snuffers keep your candles looking clean and brand new for as long as possible, and have been used for centuries. Simply place the bell of the snuffer - a small metal cup at the end of the handle - over the candle's wick and lower it over the flame. This deprives the flame of oxygen, stifling it gradually rather than all at once. Unlike blowing it out, snuffing out a candle doesn't create as much smoke or soot, making it an ideal alternative. Hold the snuffer in place until the flame is out completely, for at least one second. Then cover the candle with a lid.
