MONDAY MADNESS: How do you Lafko?

This weekend I engaged in some spring cleaning and organizing.  In case you didn’t know, I function best when things are put away.  And there are certain things I love looking at…even more so when they are neat and tidy.  So what does this have to do with my blog question? 

Stay with me here.  I struggle with strong fragrances and any lotion or scent that’s over powering.  I can’t walk through the fragrance department without getting a headache.  (Just ask my sisters or daughters…they are banned from wearing perfume around me.  Selfish, I know.)

But I do love candles and clean-smelling rooms.  I have found Lafko candles to be the perfect solution.  Because they are soy based, they burn clean for 90 hours.  After that, these oversized hand-blown glass vessels take on a new life and can be used in almost any room of your house.

For me, then end up in the office housing my favorite Copic Glitter Pens.

  Oh…you like the glitter pens more than the candle?  That's ok.  Grab your favorite colors   here  .  Now, you're tempted to get that candle and copy me,   right?  Ok, get the candle   here.

Or, they find their way into my bathroom to showcase my lip-gloss collection.


The third candle burn through allows my important kitchen utensils to be at my disposal.

So, I ask you again, how do you Lafko?  If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience it, grab your first Lafko candle here.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  And just think, you’ll have 90 hours to decide its afterlife.

Candly yours,


PS To clean your Lafko candle after it has burned to the bottom, simply place it in the freezer for a half an hour (after the remaining wax has solidified).  Then take a knife to pop out the bottom wax portion.  Wipe clean.  Wash with soap and warm water. Dry.  Done.

PSS Yep, the first vessel I cleaned out made its way to the coffee station to hold my beloved Nespresso pods.  That was a given.
