Prevent candles/incense blackening walls.


my mom likes to burn incense & candles. However, overtime it blackens the walls noticeably.

Rather than painting the walls every so often, is there a way to prevent it. Special paint? Extra ventilation, or fan in the area where its lit?

Sorry I don't think there is a magical solution for this one.

She's your mom. If this sooty little problem brings her pleasure---Just figure on gifting her a paint job every few years.

Be glad you still have a mom to worry about.--Mike--

I'm thinking, give Mom a few doobies and have her burn the incense outside.

found one googling, I've seen one kind, gives the aroma, but no smoke, would be a lot easier getting her something like this then painting the rooms. A gift for "mom" is always special.
