If you use candles in your home, then you know there’s always a little wax left at the bottom of the candle holder. Let’s talk about an easy trick for cleaning votive holders.
Candles can bring such a cozy ambiance to our homes, and fill it with wonderful scents of flowers, citrus, or cedarwood; but eventually, they burn out, and we’re left with a small amount of wax at the bottom of our votive holders. You might think to head to your silverware drawer to grab a knife, and start scraping; but this doesn’t do a very thorough job, and it can scratch the votive.
Long, long ago, I learned a little trick from Martha Stewart, and it works so well, I just had to share it with you.
How To Easily Clean Wax From Votive Holders
Simply grab your votives and place them in the freezer.
Let them to freeze for an hour or two as this allows the wax to shrink a bit. When you pull them out, the wax will literally fall out when you tip it over and gently tap it.
Cleaning votive holders is that easy.
