Instead of dirty cars how about clean candles. For the holidays if you find you need to restock you candles invest in high quality, clean burning, natural beeswax candles. If beeswax candles are a little out of the budget then look for soy based candles. The thing you want to avoid is paraffin candles. Paraffin is a petroleum product and can create indoor air pollution that can rival the air quality of L.A. if you are burning a number of them at once. Besides the dirty paraffin some candles that are imported have lead in the wick. Kinda a double whammy. I know beeswax candles are very expensive, but they burn very slowly and they don’t drip. They will last a lot longer than cheaper, dirtier, drippy paraffin candles. Beeswax candles are a great gift for the holidays. If you can only afford a few new holiday decorations this year put that money towards a natural candle rather than plastic decorations.
