How To Remove Candle Wax From Glass Containers
This pretty hand-painted candle holder is a Tracy Porter Design.
Do you have candles you can no longer burn? I love the pretty design on this glass candle holder and could not bring myself to throw it away. The wick is missing inside the wax and I can no longer use it. Here is an easy way to clean out your candle holders and reuse them again.
This is what I started with:
Dirty wax and No wick
To clean out the ugly wax and make it pretty again I boiled water in my tea kettle and poured it over the wax.
After about an hour a thin layer of wax floated to the top
I scooped out the first layer and poured more boiling water into the container.
I repeated this one more time until the final layer of wax came out.
To my surprise, I found the wick!!
I cleaned the wax that held the wick and lit it.
Now I have a pretty vase and I still have the candle.
