Decrease the black soot on the inside of your candle jar

Does your candle look like the one on the right? My soy, yes I said *soy, candle jar is covered with black soot from the wick being too tall. Here's an easy fix. Keep the wick trimmed to 1/8" - 1/4" in height, it actually says this on the bottom label of these two candles. Trimming the wick keeps the candle from burning off so much black soot and makes them last longer.

How to get rid of the black soot? I just use a napkin to wipe away the black soot on the inside of my candle if I forgot to trim the wick.

* it's said that soy candles don't produce black soot like their counterparts that are not soy.
