Having had an interesting afternoon trying to solve a mystery. We have a cream carpet and I noticed this morning that there was a line by the window as if someone had marked it with grey a wiggly line, along the length of the window. Totally puzzled. Eventually work out that these lines followed the closed curtains, that don't quite make the floor. Finally noticed that the cream marble surround on the fireplace was also marked, obviously by the candles that I have been burning occasionally since Christmas. These are high quality, expensive ones. You could actually write your name on one side in the carbon. I figured that the line on the carpet was carbon, following the fall of the curtain. Now obviously we have breathing this in for the past few weeks. I have not done any research yet, but I guess this must be a hazard to health? The carbon on the marble and the actual surround has washed off, I now need to haul out the carpet cleaner to have a go at the carpet. Don't know what to do with the rest of my candles, but guess they must be headed for the bin.
