Candle followers, also referred to as candle burners or wax savers, are available in all sizes to fit the largest Paschal candle to the smallest Altar candle. Properly fitting candles with followers will ensure maximum burning time and minimize the potential for problems.
A correctly sized follower is determined by the diameter of the candle to be used. For example, a 3 inch diameter candle will use a 3 inch diameter follower.
A clean, glistening follower looks better and performs better. To remove any accumulated wax from the follower, immerse it in warm water and wipe clean with a soft cloth. Use of abrasives may affect the finish of the followers.
