So, you’ve reached the end of your candle and you’re wondering what to do now. Before you toss away your jar, we wanted to offer you another option - REMOVING THE WAX AND REUSING YOUR JAR!
There are 2 ways to remove wax from a jar, the heating method or the frozen method. We have tried both so you don’t have to. The Frozen Method is the one we prefer because it is faster, cleaner, and you can repurpose the leftover wax.
Let’s get started. For this you will need: a frozen candle jar, 1 butter knife, and 1 cleaning cloth
THE FROZEN METHOD:
Step 1: Place your candle jar in the freezer for 30-40 minutes
Step 2: Remove the jar from the freezer (be careful - it’s cold!) and grab a butter knife OR a spoon
Step 3: Use butter knife to press into the wax firmly (the wax should start to crack)
Step 4: Continue this until you are able to scoop out all of the chunks of wax
Step 5: Remove the wick and wick holder
Step 6: Wash your jar with soap and water
And there you have it! A clean jar that can now be repurposed.
#TOLTip: Any leftover wax can be used in a wax melter.
