Candle Re-use

Cleaning Instructions for Candle Jars

Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can clean your candle jars for reuse!
Once the candle has been burned and there is roughly about a quarter inch of wax and wick left you can begin this process.


1. You will want to take a pot of boiling water and place this water into the jar, please be careful. The water will heat everything inside and the sides of the jar. This will be hot enough to melt the remaining wax and the glue that holds the wick in place. Let the jar soak for 5-10 min.

2. Once this time a has passed, you may use a spoon or fork to budge the metal wick holder out of place. The hot water should be enough to soften the glue and it will unstick itself, but it can be stubborn and still may be holding on. While doing this process, hold the jar firm and carefully with a towel, the glass of the jar still might be hot.

3. You can now take all the residue and wick holder out of the jar and dispose of it. At your sink, you may dump out the remaining water and wash the jar with soap and warm water.

4. Continue this process to get any remaining wax residue and glue and make your jar squeaky clean! 

This jar can be used for so many things! Storage for makeup brushes, cotton balls, or anything else!
