Trimming curling wicks

Recommended Posts

I feel like this a bit of a silly question, but I haven’t been able to find an answer by searching around.  I know that trimming wicks to 1/4” is generally optimal. But I’ve been wondering about wicks that curl after an initial burn. Do you treat them as if the wick was straight when trimming or do you account for the bit of curl and give them a bit of leeway?
