Star Animal Sundays products are individually handcrafted. There may be natural blemishes and variations that are not product flaws. Such variations are inherent in the manufacturing of handmade products, so you may find minor distinctions that make your pieces special.
Although our metals do not easily tarnish, it is only natural for everyday build up from lotions, skin oils and water residue to form a thin layer of debris. We recommend simply wiping down your all gold pieces with soapy warm water and a jewelry cleaning cloth. We do not recommend wearing any of your pieces to bed or your wood pieces in the shower.
Our natural sandalwood beads are raw and untreated, therefore, are not indestructible. We do not recommend getting any of your wood beaded pieces wet.
Do not spray on perfume or apply lotion while wearing your gold plated jewelry. Wear your jewelry after you have sprayed on your favorite perfume or applied lotion so that chemicals do not interact with your jewelry’s metal. In addition, we advise that you remove your gold plated jewelry when you exercise or while swimming as this may also cause tarnish to your jewelry.
Here are our safety tips and for prolonging the life of your candles.
- For the first time you burn your SAS candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly during future usage. Do not burn for more than 2 hours at a time. Our 5.25oz candle burns for 30 hours.
Keep Wick Trimmed:
- Before lighting your SAS candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid black smoke which can accumulate around the edge of the glass.
Realign the Wick:
- If you see your wick falling be sure to re-center and straighten the wick.
- Never leave a lit candle unattended as this could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.
