Truth time: Have you ever bought a candle because it came in a cute jar?
We’re guilty as charged. Sometimes, those pretty jars are more enticing than the scents they hold. But when the candle is spent and your jar is covered in those little wax remnants, things are decidedly less attractive.
You can get rid of the wax completely in three easy steps. To reuse your pretty jars, try this trick:
For this project, you’ll need:
To easily clean out the wax, freeze the jar. Cold temperatures will contract the wax away from the sides of the jar.
The contracted wax is easy to remove! With a dull knife, simply scrape it away.
Once most of the wax is out, use a soft cloth or Q-Tip to swab the inside of the jar with baby oil. This will clean up anything you missed with the knife.
How will you use your jar?
