Safe Candle Alternatives For Your Home
Everyone wants their home to smell nice, and flickering candlelight always makes a home feel more cozy. Unfortunately, candles are responsible for thousands of house fires a year, resulting in millions of dollars of property damage. Consider the following alternatives to candles for your home.
*Electric candles: these candle substitutes are becoming more popular due to their similarity in look to an actual candle and because they can be left unsupervised or overnight without worry of causing smoke or fire damage. Electric candles are typically battery powered and come in a variety of colors and sizes.
*Wax warmers: these flameless candle substitutes use a battery or electric heated dish to melt wax, creating a pleasant scent in your home.
*Fairy or string lights: these electric or battery powered lights are great for providing a festive setting and are easy to string up without equipment.
*Reed diffusers: if it's scent your are looking for, these are simple and require no power source. The glass bottles hold scented oils and upright reed or sticks. As the oil seeps up the reed the smell is released into the air.
