DIY: Recycled candle Jar
Candles can be expensive and when you spend $65 on Jo Malone candle, you better reuse that glass. Most candle jars are made of thicker glass anyway than regular jars made to storage your cotton balls, Q-tips & etc. Here are the easy steps you need to take once your candle can no longer be lit.
1. Put the glass in the freezer then take it out after atleast two hrs. I have accidently left it in the freezer overnight before, nothing happens, just make sure the candle is frozen. The cold temperature will cause the wax to shrink.
2. Take a dull knife and loosen the sides of the candle till you can tab the wax completely out.
3. There will be some small wax residue on the jar so take an oil or vinegar solution to get the remains off, leaving it streak-free.
4. After all the wax is removed, I suggest running the jar through your dishwasher to fully santiize the jar.
