Here’s the easiest way to remove wax from candle holders… no knife required!
Candles bring such a cozy ambiance to our homes and fill it with the 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 candle 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 glass… not to mention, it also poses a risk of cutting yourself.
Long, long ago, I learned a little trick to easily remove wax from candle holders, and it works so well, I just had to share it with you.
How To Easily Remove Wax From Candle Holders
When your candle has reached its end, simply place your candle holder 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.
Removing wax from candle holders is that easy.
If you have a larger candle jar, you may need to break up the wax into smaller pieces after freezing. Gently push on the frozen wax with a knife and it should break into several smaller pieces for easy removal.
