If you're a candle enthusiast, you may have noticed that there is often leftover wax at the bottom of your candle jars that can no longer burn due to the wick. To make the most of your candle and avoid wasting any wax, here are some methods to clean out the jars:
Stovetop Method: Place the candle jar in a saucepan and fill the pot with water, covering about half of the jar. Heat the saucepan on a low temperature for approximately ten minutes until the wax melts completely. Remove the jar from the stove and pour the melted wax into a new candle or use it in a diffuser.
Boiling Water Method: Boil some water and carefully pour it into the candle jar. Let it sit until the water cools down. The hot water will melt the wax, and after a few hours, the wax will solidify at the top of the jar. Remove the excess wax and use it in a diffuser or for a new candle.
Freezer Method: Place the candle jar in the freezer for around ten minutes. Take it out and use a spoon to easily collect the solidified wax at the bottom of the jar. Use the collected wax in a diffuser or for another purpose.
After removing the wax, you can clean the candle jar by using warm water and soap with a sponge. If there are any soot marks, the hot water, and soap should help remove them, giving the jar a fresh start.
These methods provide different options for cleaning out candle jars, so choose the one that works best for you. Remember, once your candle is finished, you can repurpose the clean jar for various uses.
