What do you do with your pretty candle jars once the candle is all gone? Don't toss them; reuse them! Use these 4 ways to get the wax out.
To start, remove as much wax as possible with a butter knife. Then use one of these 4 methods to get the rest out.
Put the jar into the freezer for a few hours. Then just pop the wax out or use a butter knife to gently break it up!
Gently pour boiling water into the container covering all of the leftover wax. Let it cool and simply strain the wax out.
Place your candle jars in a pot. Pour boiling water in the pot so it covers the sides of the jars but doesn't go inside. Use a butter knife to pull the wax away from the sides.
Place your candle upside down onto a foil-lined cookie sheet. Put it in the oven at 200°F for 15 minutes. Lift the jar with an oven mitt and remove any wax.
