If I remember correctly a short wick is key.  When there is a lot of extra the soot you get is from the burning of the wick and not the wax.  Also keep them out of big drafts. =)

Your wick needs to be no more than 1/4 inch long when you light the candle.  Soot is inevitable if you burn the candle longer than 3-4 hours in a container without cutting the wick again.  I’m a candle maker…I know.
