A beloved staple in every home causes approximately 8,200 house fires per year. While candles make your home smell fantastic, they can also be potentially hazardous. Skip the dangerous flames and invest in an electric candle warmer that will slowly (and safely) heat your favorite candle or wax melts. Plus, candle warmers can heat up the leftover wax at the bottom of your candles after you can no longer light the wick.
