Xmas tree

Soap and candles get harder as they get older. Old soap lasts longer – keep a big glass jar of soap in the bathroom – it looks good.

Old candles burn longer and drip less. I use candles that are over five years old on my Xmas tree, I buy them cheap in January.

However for safety reasons use electric children on your tree if you have young candles.
