How to Reuse Candle Jars Using the Freezer Method
1. Freeze the Candle Jar Overnight
Place your candle jar in the freezer overnight when little candle wax remains.
2. Poke the Candle Wax with a Butter Knife
The next day, remove the frozen candle from the freezer and grab a butter knife. The cold temperatures have hardened the wax, so a little poke will make it easily break into large chunks.
There’s no need for a steak knife or heavy-duty knife. A fork or the end of a spoon may also work.
Dump those chunks out of the jar. You can use the remaining wax in a wax warmer to savor the last bit of fragrance or simply discard the wax chunks.
3. Wipe Jar Down with Cooking Oil
Oil attracts oil. So any residual residue in the candle jar (which contains essential or fragrance oils from the original candle) will wipe out easier with this step. It prepares your candle jar for the soapy rinse to follow in the next and final step!
4. Rinse with Soap & Water
Rinse your candle jar like you would any dish in your sink. We recommend hand washing if you choose to keep the motivating label on your candle jar.
Ready to reuse in the home , office or wherever your heart desires the options are endless!! The vessel makes a great home for succulents as well stay tuned for more tips & tricks.
