Candle Jar

What do you do with your candle jar when your candle is all gone?  Instead of just throwing it away, why don’t you follow these easy steps on how to repurpose your jar for its next use and new life.

  1. Know when it’s time to say goodbye. Do not relight your candle when 5-10mm of wax remains as a safety precaution.
  2. Peel the label off the base of the jar removing any remaining residue with hot soapy water.
  3. Remove leftover wax carefully. We don’t want you to hurt yourself by breaking the glass.
    • Simply put your glass in the freezer for at least four hours.  Use a butter knife to gently pry out the remaining wax and wick.  Wipe off any remaining residue with wet paper towel before washing it clean. Or
    • Simply melt the remaining wax by sitting the glass in a small pan set over a larger pan of simmering water. Once the wax has softened, carefully remove the jar from the water and pour out the melted wax. Wipe off any remaining residue with paper towel before washing it clean.
    • Never pour melted wax or water with wax residue down the drain to prevent clogging the pipe
  4. Now you have a new glass tumbler ready to use. Here are a few of our favourite ideas.
