During 2020, it became clearer than ever before just how easily germs are spread via respiratory droplets. This is especially true during birthday celebrations, when blowing out candles on a cake can significantly increase bacteria on the cake.

In response, new startup Voltum, LLC has announced the launch of its new product, Clean Wish Candle Holders. Developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, Clean Wish Candle Holders are a clear, simple suction cup candle holder designed to fit standard birthday candles and stick to any cake cover.

“We wanted to find a way to make this tradition sanitary, yet as similar as possible to the traditional way,” says Victoria Hatton of Voltum, LLC. “As parents and grandparents, we know how important it is to get that classic photo of kids blowing out their candles.”

The features of the product include:

  • Attaches to any cake cover.
  • Adapters are included to account for skinny candles and number/letter candles.
  • Get traditional “Birthday Wish” photos of kids and family.
  • Easily removeable, washable and reusable.
  • All ages can have candles for their birthday without an abundance of wax or candle holes on the cake.
  • Each box contains 16 suction cup candle holders and 20 adapters to fit almost any birthday candle.

Clean Wish Candle Holders are available through its website, Amazon and Etsy, and coming soon to Amazon Canada.
