When playing with wax, please keep the following in mind:
- Spread out a drop cloth before you begin! It catches wax drops and splashes, protecting your floor/carpet/furniture/sheets.
- Lightplay Candles are ultra low temperature and are even safe for–yes, those naughty bits. Even so, we do not recommend pouring hot wax inside bodily cavities. Keep in mind: on, not in.
- After playing, even though you may feel slightly oily, do not rush into the shower. Scrape off the wax with a plastic knife (or the back of a butter knife) while standing on (or sitting on) drop cloths, and then rub down with a towel or just bare hands.
- If you don’t want to scrape, you can also wipe the wax off with paper towels and/or baby wipes. We do that all the time during demonstrations!
- Your skin may still feel oily when the wax is first removed. After waxplay is a wonderful time for a sensual massage! Lightplay Candles have moisturizing oils added in and will leave your skin soft and smooth once the oils have been absorbed.
- Wax should not be washed down shower drains as solid wax may clump and clog the pipes. Please do not step into the shower before the majority of the wax has been scraped or wiped off.
Lightplay Candles come in jars for easy storage so that you can use the remaining wax again easily. There is enough in each candle for multiple sessions of fun. (You may run out of drop cloths before you run out of candles!)
Scraped-off used wax can be used to make firestarters, coat shoes for waterproofing, or make wax melts. We do NOT recommend re-using poured wax for waxplay, because the specific mix of oils that make Lightplay Candles melt at an ultra-low temperature will no longer be in balance as much of the oils will either have burned off or been absorbed into your skin. If you choose to re-use the wax for erotic purposes you do so at your own risk!
